How to prepare Similac Follow On Milk?

Please ensure you read and follow all instructions carefully, as adding too much or too little formula to the baby’s bottle, beaker or cup could be harmful and make them ill.

  • Wash your hands
  • STEP 1 – Before you start, wash your hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers’ instructions, alternatively you can boil them for 10 minutes. After 6 months of age, if you are using a beaker, it is not necessary to sterilize the equipment, however please make sure everything has been fully cleaned
  • Boil 1 litre of fresh tap water
  • STEP 2 – Boil 1 litre of fresh tap water (not bottled water) and allow to cool for no more than 30 minutes. Do not use artificially softened water or repeatedly boiled water
  • Carefully pour the correct amount of warm
  • STEP 3 – Carefully pour the correct amount of warm, previously boiled water into the beaker or bottle. Have a look at our suggested feeding guide, under the ‘Feeding Advice’ tab, to provide guidance on how much to feed your baby
  • Fill the enclosed scoop with powder
  • STEP 4 – Fill the enclosed scoop with powder, levelling with the back of a clean, dry, knife. Do not pack down in the scoop
  • Add one scoop of powder
  • STEP 5Add one scoop of powder to each 60 ml of water. Only use the scoop provided. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful
  • Place the cap on the beaker
  • STEP 6 – Place the cap on the beaker (or bottle) and shake gently until completely dissolved. If you are using a bottle, remove the cap and replace with a sterilised teat
  • Test the temperature of the formula
  • STEP 7 – Test the temperature of the formula (drops should feel lukewarm on the inside of your wrist) and if necessary, cool by holding the beaker/bottle under cold running water. Feed immediately

Proper hygiene, handling and storage are important when preparing follow-on milk. Whilst they are made under hygienic conditions, powdered follow-on formulas are not sterile.

Discard any milk that has not been used within 2 hours. For hygiene reasons, we recommend you make up each feed as required.


Store unopened under normal room conditions. Once opened, replace the lid to keep the formula tightly covered and store in a cool, dry place (not the refrigerator). Use within 3 weeks of opening.

Suggested feeding guide

Babies’ nutritional requirements will vary, but after 6 months, once weaning is established, your baby will need around 500 - 600 ml of milk each day. Please speak to your healthcare professional if you require further advice.

Prepared milk may be fed from a cup, and for older children can be mixed with cereal or other solid foods. However, please never add any food into your baby’s bottle or beaker. If necessary, offer cooled boiled water between feeds. Never leave your baby alone at feeding times.

Important notice

Breast milk is best for babies and is recommended for as long as possible during infancy. Similac Stage 2 is only suitable for babies over 6 months as part of a mixed diet. Always speak to your doctor, midwife or health visitor for advice about feeding your baby. The decision to start weaning or to use this product before 6 months should only be made on the advice of a healthcare professional, based on your baby’s individual needs. Good dental hygiene is important for babies and toddlers, please speak with your healthcare professional or dentist for advice. Always clean your baby’s teeth after the last feed at night.
