Directions for Preparation and Use:

  • Neocate Infant may be mixed with warm or cool sterile water*. Do not boil formula or use a microwave to prepare or warm formula. For standard dilution, use enclosed scoop (4.75 g) to mix one level scoop per fluid ounce of prepared formula.

How to make a 5 fluid ounce bottle:

  1. Add 5 scoops of Neocate Infant to a clean, sterile container.
  2. Fill up to the 5 fluid ounce line with warm or cool sterile water.
  3. Shake for 15-20 seconds or until the powder dissolves. Add additional water if necessary to make final volume and shake again.

*Boiling is the preferred method for sterilizing water, bottles, nipples, and mixing utensils.

Freshly mixed formula is best. Refrigerate pre-mixed formula immediately and use within 24 hours of mixing. Shake immediately before use. Throw away formula left in the bottle one hour after feeding. Tube feeding hang time should not exceed 4 hours.

Do not boil formula. Do not use a microwave oven to prepare or warm formula.
