DIARRHOEA

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.

Why Novalac Diarrhoea?

  • High in electrolytes for rapid rehydration

  • Increases nutrient and fluid absorption

  • Improves stool consistency

  • Pleasant banana and apple flavour

How to prepare Novalac Diarrhoea

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.

Feeding guide for Novalac Diarrhoea

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.
