Nutritionally complete, PurAmino can be a sole source of nutrition for infants up to 6 months of age and provide a major source of nutrition through 24 months of age.

  • Amino acid-based, hypoallergenic formula

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARATION & USE

Your baby’s health depends on carefully following the instructions below. Proper hygiene, preparation, dilution, use and storage are important when preparing infant formula. Powdered infant formulas are not sterile and should not be fed to premature infants or infants who might have immune problems unless directed and supervised by your baby’s doctor. Ask your baby’s doctor which formula is appropriate for your baby.

Ask your baby’s doctor about the need to use cooled, boiled water for mixing and the need to boil clean utensils, bottles and nipples in water before use.

  • Wash hands thoroughly with soap & water before preparing formula.
  • Pour desired amount of water into the bottle. Add powder.
  • Cap bottle and SHAKE WELL.

Use scoop in can to measure powder. Store DRY scoop in this can.

For every 1 fl oz of water, add 1 unpacked level scoop of powder (4.5 g). Each scoop adds about 0.1 fl oz to the amount of prepared formula. For example, adding 3 unpacked level scoops of powder to 3 fl oz of water will make about 3.3 fl oz of formula.

WARNING: Do not use a microwave oven to warm formula. Serious burns may result.

Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm. Once prepared, infant formula can spoil quickly. Either feed immediately or cover and store in refrigerator at 35-40°F (2-4°C) for no longer than 24 hours. Do not use prepared formula if it is unrefrigerated for more than a total of 2 hours. Do not freeze prepared formula. After feeding begins, use formula within one hour or discard.

Powder Storage: Store cans at room temperature. After opening can, keep tightly covered, store in dry area and use contents within 1 month. Do not freeze powder and avoid excessive heat.
