Making up formula correctly

It is important to emphasise that, if feeding a baby with formula, it must be made up properly to ensure the correct amount of nutrients are supplied to the baby and correctly sterilised to protect against mirobacteria. Incorrect measurements can lead to poor nutrition or rapid weight gain. Using proper measurements, sterilising procedures and safety for formula feeding is essential. There are resources available to parents and carers explaining formula feeding in detail.
