Directions for Preparation and Use:
USE ONLY UNDER MEDICAL SUPERVISION. Your baby's health depends on carefully following the preparation, use and storage instructions. Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm. Proper hygiene is important when preparing infant formula.
We recommend cooled, boiled water for preparation and the use of sterilized bottles. Ask your baby's healthcare team if you need to use cooled, boiled water for mixing and if you need to boil (sterilize) bottles, nipples, and rings before use.
- Wash hands thoroughly and clean preparation area.
- Pour the required amount of cooled, boiled water into a sterilized feeding bottle*.
- Add the prescribed number of scoops of Neocate® Infant DHA/ARA to the water. (All scoops should be leveled and unpacked).
- Place the cap on the bottle and shake until the powder dissolves. *Boiling is the preferred method for sterilizing water, bottles, nipples and mixing utensils.
To make a standard dilution (20 kcal/fl oz), add 1 unpacked, level scoop (4.6 g) of powder to each fluid ounce of water. Only use the scoop provided
Amount of Neocate
powder to add
|3 fl oz||3 scoops or 13.8 g||3.3 fl oz|
|5 fl oz||5 scoops or 23 g||5.5 fl oz|
|8 fl oz||8 scoops or 36.8 g||9 fl oz|
Do not boil formula and do not use a microwave oven to prepare or warm formula; serious burns may result. Formula dilution will vary depending on the age, body weight and medical condition of the infant. Neocate® Infant DHA/ARA is suitable as a sole source of nutrition for infants under one year of age. For oral and tube feeding only; not for parenteral use.
Freshly prepared formula is best. Formula prepared in advance must be cooled rapidly, stored in the refrigerator and used within 24 hours of preparation. Discard formula left in bottle or cup 1 hour after feeding starts. Tube feeding hang time should not exceed 4 hours.
Store unopened can at room temperature. Do not store at extreme temperatures. Once opened, reseal can and store in a cool, dry place (not in a refrigerator). Use within 1 month.
|1 – 3 months||roughly 20 to 30 fluid ounces (fl oz)|
|4 – 6 months||roughly 24 to 34 fl oz|
|7 – 9 months||roughly 29 to 39 fl oz|
|10 – 12 months||roughly 34 to 44 fl oz|
24 hours – This is the amount of time that prepared Neocate powdered formulas can stay in the fridge, IF you put them in right after mixing. If Neocate has been in the fridge longer than 24 hours, we recommend discarding.
4 hours – This is the amount of time that prepared Neocate powdered formulas can sit out at room temperature. This can be either after being freshly mixed, or after being removed from the fridge. If it’s been on the counter at room temperature longer than 4 hours, discard!
1 hour – This is the amount of time that Neocate can be kept after someone starts to drink it. Like it or not, our mouths are full of bacteria that just love nutrient-rich formulas like Neocate. Once your baby takes a drink, start the clock and discard what’s left after 1 hour. Safety first!
Did you know that some spots in your refrigerator are colder than others? It’s true! In general, the door is the warmest part of the fridge. The coldest parts can vary based on the layout of the fridge (i.e. where the freezer and ice maker are).
Want a surefire way to know if your fridge is cold enough? Take it’s temperature! Place a cup of water in the fridge, add a thermometer, and wait a few hours. You can even move it around to different parts of the fridge to see the differences – just make sure you give the water a few hours to adjust to the new “climate.”
Ask your healthcare team for advice before you prepare Neocate in any of these recipes, or any way other than as directed on the packaging or as we suggest above. Find more information about cooking with Neocate here.
1. Formula dissolves more easily in warm water. The warmest water you should use for Neocate® Infant DHA/ARA is 122°F (50°C) to ensure the nutrient levels are not affected. (Water that temperature is pretty warm, but not uncomfortably hot is our best description.)
2. DO NOT use boiling water to prepare Neocate powders.
3. Stir or shake vigorously for the best solubility.
4. You can try allowing formula freshly mixed to "rest" for a few minutes and then give it another vigorous stir or shake.
5. If you still have trouble after trying the above tips, give us a call at 1.800.Neocate
For standard bottled waters or for tap water, you can easily sterilize the water by bringing it to a rolling boil for 2 minutes. You should then remove it from the heat and allow the water to cool for about 20-30 minutes to bring it down to a cooler temperature that would be safe for mixing with Neocate® Infant DHA/ARA (below 122°F/50°C). This ensures it is not so hot that it affects nutrients in the formula. Neocate should never be mixed with boiling or recently boiled water.
For caregivers who prefer not to sterilize the water, we suggest checking with your little one’s healthcare team for their guidance.
