It is extremely important to follow the storage and handling instructions provided on the tin of the baby formula you are using. These instructions are mandatory on a label so if you can’t find them, it is worth ringing the Consumer Careline to get this advice before using the baby formula. These instructions are important to ensure freshness and the quality attributes of the product.
An example of what you might find on your tin is:
Close can tightly after each use and store in a cool, dry place.
Once open, use contents within 3 weeks.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Breast milk is best for babies and provides ideal nutrition. Good maternal nutrition is important for the preparation and maintenance of breastfeeding. Introducing partial bottle feeding could negatively affect breastfeeding and reversing a decision not to breastfeed is difficult. Professional advice should be followed on infant feeding. Infant formula should be prepared and used exactly as directed or it could pose a health hazard. The preparation requirements and cost of providing infant formula until 12 months of age should be considered before making a decision to formula feed.
We believe that breastfeeding is the ideal nutritional start for babies.
During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. A decision not to breastfeed, or to introduce partial bottle feeding, could reduce the supply of breast milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, including the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.
We recognise that breastfeeding is not always an option for some parents. No matter your feeding choice, Nestlé Baby & me is here to share the latest information to help you feel supported and confident on your parenthood journey.
As every child’s development is different, be sure to consult with your health care professional for individual advice about feeding your baby.
