Follow the preparation instructions precisely when preparing infant formula. Improper preparation or storage of the prepared bottle over a longer period of time can lead to health problems, e.g. due to the growth of unwanted germs. Prepare formula before every feeding and feed immediately. Do not reuse the remains of the prepared formula. Clean bottle, teat and ring thoroughly. Close the opened bag tightly after use. Store dry and at room temperature and use within 3 weeks after opening. Do not heat food in the microwave (risk of scalding).
Boil fresh drinking water and cool to approx. 40°-50° C* / 104-122° F*.
Add desired amount of boiled water (see Table) to bottle.
Measure recommended amount of powder (see Table). Level the baby formula on the measuring spoon and add the powder to the water.
Close the bottle and shake thoroughly.
Cool to drinking temperature of approx. 37° C / 98.6° F. Check temperature, e.g. with HiPP thermometer.
*In order not to damage the natural lactic acid cultures (lactobacilli), please do not prepare the food with too hot water.
Amounts And Dosage
The amount of formula per bottle can vary from bottle to bottle. Recommended drinking quantities and the number of bottles per day are for guidance only. Your baby does not necessarily have to drink the bottle completely. Please use the included measuring spoon only! One flattened spoonful per 30 ml / 1.01 oz water.
Exclusive breast feeding in the first 6 months is ideal for your baby. As with any following formula, HiPP BIO COMBIOTIK®stage 2No Starch should not be used as a breast milk substitute in the first 6 months, but should only be used after 6 months as part of a mixed diet. Your baby's individual growth and developmental needs may require to introduce supplemental foods as part of a mixed diet into your baby's diet at an earlier stage. Please consult your pediatrician. Make sure your baby eats a balanced diet for a healthy life.
Like breast milk, all infant formula contains carbohydrates. They are an important part of your baby's diet. Frequent or prolonged teeth contact with carbohydrate-containing liquids can lead to tooth decay and thus to health problems. Do not let your child suck the bottle permanently and change to cup-feeding as soon as possible.
