Bottle-feeding and formula
Talk with a midwife, nurse, doctor or health worker about using formula.
Only breastmilk or formula in bottle before 12 months. No cow’s milk. No water as a drink before 6 months.
No bottle in bed. Don’t leave baby alone with bottle.
How to prepare formula
Wash your hands. Wash and scrub bottles. Boil bottles in large pot for 5 minutes.
Keep formula and scoop dry. Use with clean and dry hands.
How to use and store formula
Throw out made-up formula if it has been at room temperature for one hour or more. Clean bottles after each feed.
Keep freshly made-up formula in the fridge for one day only.
