    2. Prep:
      1. Wash hands and sterilise all utensils.
    3. Water:
      1. Boil 1 litre of freshly run water in a kettle then leave to cool for 30 minutes and no more so the water can reach the recommended temperature of 70°C.
      2. When ready, pour the right amount of water into a sterilised beaker, as per the feeding guide. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
    4. Powder:
      1. Using the scoop, add the powder to the water, as per the feeding guide.
      2. To make sure the right amount of powder is added, use the leveller on the inside of the box to level off the scoops.
      3. Don't press or heap the powder as adding too much or too little formula could make your baby ill.
    5. Shake:
      1. Place the sterilised lid on the beaker and shake straight away.
      2. For best results, shake vertically and vigorously for at least 10 seconds, until all of the powder is dissolved.
    6. Cool the beaker by placing under a cold running tap or in a bowl of cold water, and check the temperature by placing a few drops on the inside of your wrist. The formula should feel lukewarm, but not hot. If possible, we'd recommend starting the feed straight away and always finishing within 2 hours.

    8. Do not heat feeds in a microwave, hot spots may occur and cause scalding.
