Cow & Gate Infant Milk for Hungrier Babies from Birth 900g
Why choose Cow & Gate?
At Cow & Gate, we believe that all little ones are different. Some are noisy, some are always active and some are hungrier.
If your bottlefed little one has a bigger appetite and it's too early to introduce solid foods, Cow & Gate infant milk for hungrier babies may help. It's formulated with a different balance of milk protein and is a nutritionally complete breastmilk substitute for bottlefed babies.
Sitting, clapping, crawling - as they do more, they need more. From 6-12 months your little one will be developing new skills at an amazing pace. Our Follow-On milk can help support your baby's changing needs at this special time in their development, as part of a varied, balanced diet.
Have you tried ready-to-feed milks?
Ready-to-feed milks don't need any preparation. Just pour them straight into your little one's sterilised bottle. Available in a 200ml or 1 litre bottle.
How to use
Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your baby ill. Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to
manufacturer's instructions. Boil 1 litre of freshly run water. Leave kettle to cool for no longer than 30 minutes. Do not use artificially softened or
repeatedly boiled water. Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle. Do not add powder to boiling water due to risk of scalding. Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built-in leveller. Do not press/heap the powder. Add one scoop to every 30 ml (1 fl.oz) of boiled cooled water. Add the correct number of scoops to the water. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful. Replace seal on bottle. Shake well for 10 seconds to dissolve powder. Remove seal, replace with a sterilised teat. Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed. Feed immediately.
For hygiene reasons, do not store made up feeds. Make up each feed as required and always discard unfinished feeds after 2 hours. If necessary
offer cooled boiled water between feeds. Do not heat in a microwave, hot spots may occur and cause scalding.

Hazards and Cautions
Breastfeeding is best for babies. It is recommended that Cow & Gate first infant milk for hungrier babies be used only on the advice of a doctor,
midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian, pharmacist or other professional responsible for maternal and child care. When bottle feeding
do not allow prolonged or frequent contact of milk feeds with your baby's teeth as this increases the risk of tooth decay. Ask your healthcare
professional or dentist for advice. Make sure your baby's teeth are cleaned after the last feed at night. Never leave your baby alone during feeding.
