  • Preparation of Feedings
    • Nursette<sup>®</sup> bottles

      The baby’s health depends on carefully following the instructions below. Use only as directed by a medical professional. Proper hygiene, preparation, dilution, use and storage are important when preparing infant formula. Discuss with parents which formula is appropriate for the baby.

      2 fl oz Nursette® Bottles

      1. Inspect each bottle for signs of damage.
      2. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before preparing bottle for feeding.
      3. SHAKE BOTTLE WELL and remove cap.
      4. Attach nipple unit (not included).

      WARNING: Do not use a microwave oven to warm formula. Serious burns may result.

      Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm. Opened bottles can spoil quickly. Either feed immediately or replace cap and store in refrigerator at 35–40°F (2–4°C) for no longer than 24 hours. Do not use opened bottle if it is unrefrigerated for more than a total of 2 hours. Do not freeze. After feeding begins, use formula within 1 hour or discard.
