Safety

DO NOT make your own formula.  

  • WHY? Baby’s digestive system is very delicate. Homemade formula doesn’t have the right balance of ingredients and is dangerous for the baby. 

 

DO NOT dilute formula.  

  • WHY? Adding water is tough on the baby’s tiny kidneys, and can cause brain damage.
      
  • Do not dilute your formula or substitute infant formula with Cow’s milk before 12 months of age.
