Product information for Cow & Gate 2 Follow-On Milk from Six Months 900g
Between 6 and 12 months, your baby goes through a rapid stage of growth and development. During the first stages of weaning your baby will only be able to manage a tiny amount of food, so milk will still remain a vital source of nutrients. Cow & Gate follow-on milk provides the key nutrients needed to support your baby’s food diet from 6 months, including iron to help support normal cognitive development, and vitamin D for normal bone development.

How to prepare
Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your baby ill.
1 Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers’ instructions.
2 Boil 1 litre of freshly run water. Leave kettle to cool for no longer than 30 minutes. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
3 Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised beaker. Do not add powder to boiling water due to risk of scalding.
4 Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built-in leveller. Do not press/heap the powder.
5 Add one scoop to every 30 ml (1 fl oz) of boiled cooled water. Add the correct number of scoops to the water. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful.
6 Mix well for 10 seconds to dissolve powder. Replace lid on beaker.
7 Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed. Feed immediately.
For hygiene reasons, do not store made up feeds. Make up each feed as required and always discard unfinished feeds after 2 hours.
If necessary offer cooled boiled water between feeds. Do not heat in a microwave, hot spots may occur and cause scalding.
Cow & Gate follow-on milk is only for babies over 6 months, as part of a mixed diet. It should not be used as a breastmilk substitute before 6 months, so if you wish to use this product before 6 months we advise that you consult your healthcare professional. It is recommended that Cow & Gate follow-on milk should only be used on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian, pharmacist, or other professional responsible for maternal and child care, based on a baby’s individual needs.
When bottle feeding do not allow prolonged or frequent contact of milk feeds with your baby’s teeth as this increases the risk of tooth decay. Ask your health professional or dentist for advice. Make sure your baby’s teeth are cleaned after the last feed at night. Never leave your baby alone during feeding.
