Protein high in sulphur-containing amino acids (cysteine & methionine) to promote good hair growth.
Making up Milk
To make 100mL of milk: Mix 16g of powder (2½ scoops) with 90ml of warm water.
To make 1 litre of milk: Mix 160g of powder with 900ml of warm water.
Add about half of the water to the powder first and mix to a paste. Then make up with remaining water and mix thoroughly. Water is preboiled to ensure that it is sterilised. If the water is too hot it can cause the milk to curdle. If it is too cold then it will be difficult to disperse the powder. An electric whisk can be used for mixing larger quantities. Milk can be stored in the fridge for a day or can be frozen for up to 2 weeks. It may be useful to store frozen milk in small portions (e.g. ice cube trays), so that the required daily feed volumes can be easily thawed out. Once thawed out, discard any unused milk, and wash feeding utensils thoroughly.
