Novalac Diarrhoea has been designed to rapidly replace fluid and electrolytes in babies with diarrhoea.
Novalac Diarrhoea contains a high concentration of valuable electrolytes like sodium and potassium to quickly and effectively rehydrate babies. Reduced lactose and increased casein help to slow down movement through the digestive system, helping your baby absorb more nutrients and fluid from each feed.
Novalac Diarrhoea is not for long-term use (up to 5 days). Once your baby’s diarrhoea has resolved, use a follow on formula such as Novalac Gold.

Once your baby’s diarrhoea has resolved, Novalac Gold Stage 1 and Stage 2 formulas provide complete, everyday nutrition, with the added benefits of Omega 3 and 6 to help support each stage of your baby’s development.

WARNING: Follow instructions exactly. Prepare bottles and teats as directed. Do not change
proportions of powder except on medical advice. Incorrect preparation can make your baby very ill.
Always wash your hands before preparing a bottle. Each bottle should be prepared individually. Only use the
measuring scoop provided. It is recommended that formula be used immediately after it is prepared.
Wash the feeding bottle, cap, teat and any utensils to be used and sterilise them in boiling water.
Boil clean drinking water for 5 minutes and allow to cool to 40°C. Pour the required amount of water (see Feeding Guide) into the bottle.
Measure the correct quantity of formula (see Feeding Guide) into the bottle using the scoop provided. Always use one level scoopful (4.3g) per 30mL of water.
Secure the lid on the bottle and shake for at least 30 seconds until the powder is completely dissolved. Let cool to lukewarm temperature (37°C) without re-shaking. Test the temperature on your wrist before feeding.
If made up formula is to be stored prior to use, it must be refrigerated and used within 24 hours. Any formula
left after feeding must be discarded immediately.
Novalac Diarrhoea is best used with a variable flow teat.
This is a general guide only. Your baby may need more or less bottles than indicated depending on their
appetite. Babies aged over 6 months should be offered solid food in addition to infant formula. Always add
one level scoopful to 30mL of cooled pre-boiled water.
Breastfeeding is best for babies and has many benefits, such as protecting your baby from infection while their immune system develops. It is important that you eat a healthy, balanced diet in preparation for and during breastfeeding. Infant formula is designed to replace breast milk when an infant is not breastfed. Combining breast and bottle feeding in your baby’s first weeks of life may reduce your supply of breast milk, and reversing a decision not to breastfeed is difficult. The social and financial implications of using infant formula should be considered when choosing a method of feeding. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when preparing and using infant formula, including proper sterilisation of bottles and using boiled water. Improper use of an infant formula may make your baby ill. Always consult your doctor, midwife or health care professional for advice about feeding your baby.
