Health Tip: Mixing Baby Formula

Be sure to follow the directions

(HealthDay News) -- Infant formulas are a good alternative to breast-feeding for children less than 1 year old.

But improper mixing can harm the baby, the University of Maryland Medical Center warns.

Side effects like abdominal pain and nutritional imbalance can result from not following the manufacturer's directions.

Never water down the formula, the school's experts warn, as this can alter your baby's salt balance, which can lead to seizures.
