Similac Growing Up Milk 850g
Message from the manufacturer:
At Abbott, we have taken the decision to discontinue our standard Similac range of baby and toddler milks sold in Boots to re-focus our infant and paediatric nutrition business on our specialist ranges to better support babies who are unwell and have specific nutritional requirements.
We understand that it can be tricky for customers to move babies to a different baby milk, which is why we will also be offering the support of a feeding specialist from January. For more details and advice, customers can email Similac.UK@abbott.com or call our careline 0800 999 3963 (ROI 1800 411 411).

5. Place the cap on the beaker and shake gently until completely dissolved
6. Similac Growing Up Milk can be given at room temperature, or warmed if desired. If you choose to warm the formula, please check the temperature before feeding by testing a few drops on your wrist.

Hazards and Cautions
Suggested feeding guide
Toddlers’ nutritional requirements will vary, but after 12 months we recommend your child has around 400ml milk each day to supplement their healthy balanced diet.
You can also mix the prepared milk with cereal or other solid foods however, please never add any food into your toddler’s beaker.
Please speak to your healthcare professional if you require more advice.
Similac Stage 3 is only suitable for toddlers over 1 year of age.
Do not allow prolonged or frequent contact of drinks with your toddler’s teeth as this increases the risk of tooth decay.
Good dental hygiene is important for babies and toddlers.
Please speak with your healthcare professional or dentist for advice.
Always clean your child’s teeth after the last feed at night.
Toddlers should be supervised at all times when eating and drinking.
