Wash hands well. After 6 months of age, if you are using a beaker it is not necessary to sterilise equipment, though you should ensure everything has been fully cleaned. If you are using a bottle and teat, sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers' instructions.
Boil 1 litre of fresh tap water. Allow boiled water to cool for no more than 30 minutes. Measure 180ml ( approx 6fl.oz) of water into a beaker or bottle carefully - the water is hot. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
Using the scoop provided, add 6 scoops of powder, levelling off each scoop with the back of a clean dry knife. Store the scoop in suspension inside the top of can and replace plastic lid.
Place a lid on the beaker, or teat and cap on the bottle and shake well. Cool beaker or bottle under cold running water or in a bowl or jug of cold water until lukewarm. Test temperature by shaking a few drops onto the inside of your wrist.
