THE HEALTH OF THE INFANT DEPENDS ON CAREFULLY FOLLOWING THE DIRECTIONS FOR PREPARATION AND USE. INCORRECT PREPARATION CAN MAKE THE INFANT ILL. When preparing Locasol, please follow the guidelines below: For bottle feeding: 1. Wash hands thoroughly and clean the preparation area. Sterilise bottles and teats. 2. Boil fresh water for 5 minutes or until an electric kettle switches off. Cool for at least 30 minutes so that is feels warm to the wrist. Pour 2/3 of the required amount of water into a sterilised feeding bottle. 3. Fill the scoop provided with powder and level off with a clean, dry knife. Do not press the powder into the scoop. Use only the scoop provided. 4. Add the prescribed number of scoops of powder to the water. Replace the cap on the bottle and shake until the powder dissolves. Add the remaining amount of water and shake the bottle again. Before feeding, ensure that the product is at the correct temperature by placing a few drops on the wrist. 5. Use immediately after reconstitution. Product remaining in the bottle after one hour of feeding should be discarded. Product must not be rewarmed during feeding. For tube or sip feeding: 1. Wash hands. Use clean and sterile equipment to prepare feed. 2. Use freshly boiled cooled water. 3. Use the scoop provided or weigh out the prescribed amount of powder. 4. Add a small amount of the required water to prescribed amount of powder and stir with a fork until a smooth paste is obtained. 5. Continue stirring whilst adding the rest of the water until the prescribed dilution is achieved. 6. Administer at room temperature. Use immediately after reconstitution. Always discard unfinished feeds. For sip feeding: Product remaining after one hour of feeding should be discarded. Product must not be rewarmed during feeding. For tube feeding: Hanging time should not exceed 2 hours. Recommended feed concentration One level scoop (as provided in the tin) provides approximately 4.3g of powder. Add one level scoop of powder to every fluid ounce (30ml) of water to yield the recommended feed concentration (12.9%). Osmolality at the recommended concentration (e.g. 12.9g of powder made up to 100ml with water) is 310 mOsmol/kg H2O. A lower concentration may be required initially until tolerance is achieved. Good dental hygiene is important for infants and children, as prolonged or frequent contact of drinks and feeds with teeth increases the risk tooth decay. Make sure their teeth are cleaned after the last feed at night. Ask your health or dental professional for advice.
