Warnings / Side effects
Breast milk is best for babies and breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. Infant milks are suitable from birth when babies are not breastfed and should only be used on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist or other professionals responsible for maternal and child care. Do not add extra powder or water to make feeds stronger or weaker and do not press powder into scoop. Using too much or too little powder can make your baby ill. We recommend preparing each feed in individual bottles when required. For hygienic reason, discard unfinished feed in the bottle as soon as possible. For older babies, made-up formulae can be added to food. Do not alter or add to formula unless medically directed. Do not warm feeds in microwave, hot spots may occur and cause scalding. Remember, cow’s milk should not be used as a drink during the first year. When bottle-feeding, do not allow prolonged or frequent contact of milk feeds with teeth as this increases the risk of tooth decay. Ask your healthcare professional or dentist for advice. Always hold your baby while feeding. Do not leave baby unattended as they might choke.
