Neocate® DHA & ARA infant formula must be used under medical supervision. Powdered formula is not sterile. It is important for your infant’s health to carefully follow the preparation instructions. Formula dilution will vary depending on age, weight and medical condition of the infant.

For preparation, we recommend you use cooled, boiled water and sterilized bottles. Ask a healthcare professional if it is required that you use cooled, boiled water for mixing and whether you need to sterilize bottles, nipples, and rings before feeding.


  1. Thoroughly wash hands and clean the preparation area.
  2. Pour the needed amount of cooled, boiled water into a sterilized feeding bottle*.
  3. Add the prescribed number of scoops of Neocate® DHA & ARA infant formula to the water. When measuring the scoops, always level the powder and leave it unpacked.
  4. After closing the feeding bottle, shake well until the powder dissolves.

*The preferred method for sterilizing bottles, nipples and mixing utensils and water is to boil them.

Neocate® DHA & ARA’s recommended standard dilution is 1 unpacked and leveled scoop of powder to 30 ml of water. Use only the scoop provided.

Reagan suffered from reflux and was quite a fussy eater. When finally, the doctor suggested switching to an amino acid-based formula. Within days her colic and her reflux improved. ​I was finally able to enjoy her and bond with her and I got my confidence back.*
