How to prepare Aptamil Comfort
Important feeding instructions
Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your baby ill.
It’s important to be careful with the water you use to prepare a formula feed if your normal drinking water supply is either interrupted or contaminated. Follow these Food Standards Agency guidelines to make sure you prepare the baby formula safely.
|Step 1||Use bottled water or water from a bowser (a water tank provided by water companies) and bring it to a rolling boil. Leave it covered to cool for no more than half an hour.|
|Step 2||If there’s no electricity or gas to boil with, bottled table, spring or mineral water can be used and the prepared feed should be used immediately. The use of unboiled bowser water should be avoided.|
|Step 3||Some bottled water labelled as ‘natural mineral water’ may have high levels of sodium or sulphate. Read the label carefully and check that the figure for sodium (Na) is not higher than 200mg per litre and sulphate (SO or SO4) is not higher than 250mg per litre. If it is, then try to use another water. If no other water is available, then use this water for as short a time as possible.|
|Step 4||Follow the normal instructions for making up the feed. |
|Step 5||Use cooled boiled water or cooled boiled bottled water for cooling the feed once it has been made up.|
