How to prepare your baby's formula:

Labels in many other countries instruct consumers to boil water. Consistent with that approach, the label for Aptamil recommends heating water first to 160°F (70°C) and letting it cool to approximately 100° F (40° C).

Step 1

Wash hands and surfaces, pour desired amount of warm water into a clean bottle.

Step 2

Use the scoop provided, level off the powder. Add the correct measure of powder to the water.

Step 3

Mixing instructions require 1 scoop (7.3g of powder) for each 50mL of water.

Step 4

Cap bottle and shake well until powder is dissolved. Feed immediately (do not store) and discard unfinished formula. 

Step 5

Store open and unopened containers in a dry area at room temperature and use contents within 4 weeks of opening.

How to prepare a powdered bottle feed without tap water

Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your baby ill.

Step 1

Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers' instructions.

Step 2

Boil 1 litre of freshly run water. Leave kettle to cool for 30 minutes and no longer. Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle. Be careful of scalding. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.

Step 3

Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built in leveller. Do not press/heap the powder.

Step 4

Add the correct measure of powder to the water. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful. Place the sterilized teat and cap on the bottle and shake immediately, vertically and vigorously for at least 10 seconds, until the powder is dissolved.
