Water Flush:

The natural properties of psyllium fiber may cause some fiber particles to settle in the feeding bag. To ensure the full amount of the fiber is received, a small amount of water may be added to the bag to flush the settled fiber particles through at the end of each feed.

Follow your healthcare provider’s recommendations regarding safe preparation and storage, proper formula administration, and water flushes.
