It is recommended that formula milk is to be made up with pre boiled water that has been cooled for 30 minutes to allow it to reach a temperature no less than 70°C. This has been made based on the assumption that the milk will be prepared by hand and possibly not in the most hygienic conditions; Even when prepared in hygienic conditions, the guidelines consider that the milk may have been stored for a time giving the opportunity for bacteria to multiply. The Formula Pro Advanced offers a hygienic alternative with no risk of scalding.
The Formula Pro Advanced offers a hygienic alternative for formula preparation:
Powder is kept dry until needed and is free from human contact. Powder is simply poured from the tin into the clean, dry milk container- no contact, no scoop. The milk container is cleaned monthly, left to completely air dry then reassemble when dry. The powder can then be stored away in a way that does no promote bacteria.
Pre-boiled, cooled water is added to the water tank - separate from the powder. The water container is cleaned monthly either in the dishwasher or by hand in warm soapy water and left to air dry. The water should be replaced every 24 hours to ensure it remains fresh and clean. Filling the tank with enough water for a days’ feed is a simple way to ensure it is changed regularly. Monthly, the internal workings of the machine which the water passes through between the water container and the funnel are descaled using vinegar and water and to be thoroughly rinsed to prevent bacteria from having time to grow.
3. Formula preparation
The water is delivered between room temperature or to slightly above body temperature (approx. 40°C) according to the user’s choice. The formula drops into the funnel and both mix together in the funnel before passing into the bottle. After every 4 bottles made the funnel warning light appears to remind the consumer to remove the funnel and clean it. The funnel is cleaned in warm soapy water and aired dried to prevent any formula build up. The formula milk is only for immediate consumption – no storage, no time for bacteria to flourish.
