Hi, I'm Erica in Salt Lake City, Utah, and I'm going to show you how to prepare ready-mix formula for your baby. One of the easiest ways is just to look on the back. Usually, the instructions are right here and they'll show you step-by-step how to do it. It's usually one scoop per two ounces of water. Always use water when you're filling the bottle. Don't use anything else, just water. And usually on baby bottles, they have the little marks that you can measure by. So the two mark. And for each two ounces, you need to add in another scoop. So for a four-ounce bottle, you would put two scoops of the powder. And they have a measuring scoop in here already that you can measure it and scoop it out. It's really easy. Be sure to shake it really well when you're done and make sure that there's no extra particles in it. Also make sure that you don't leave it out for more than a couple of hours or it will be bad and you'll have to throw it out or you can make the baby sick.
