Use only under medical supervision.
One scoop = 4.396 grams (approx.).
Mix 1 scoop of S-26 LF to 30 mL (1 fl. oz.) of water.
Use only the endosed scoop. Using more or less powder than indicated will either lead to dehydration or deprive the baby of proper nutrition. Do not change proportions without medical advice.
At this age, the infant's diet becomes more diversified (cereals, baby foods).
Consult the doctor before introducing any new food to baby's diet. When foods other than the formula are introduced, they should be selected carefully in order to be in line with current therapy (such as: absence of lactose.)
In case of acute diarrhea, it is crucial to provide the baby with appropriate amounts of water and electrolytes. Untreated severe loss of water and electrolytes can lead to life-threatening dehydration.
Therefore ask the health professional for advice.
