For example, replace one session of breastfeeding by feeding one bottle of formula every three to four days.

How long will one tin of Kabrita last?
This depends on:
- Age of the child (especially in stage 1 (0-6 months) an infant will drink different quantities of formula each day)
- The stage (stage 1/2/3 recommend different amounts of formula per day depending on the age of the infant)
You can prepare various quantities of formula per tin.
Kabrita 1: 13.5 g + 90 ml water makes 100 ml formula. 1 tin = 800 gram. So 800 g / 13.5 g = 59 portions of 100 ml = about 5900 ml formula. So: almost 6 litres from one tin of Kabrita 1.
Kabrita 2: 14 g + 90 ml water makes 100 ml formula. 1 tin = 800 gram. 800/14 = 57 portions of 100 ml > about 5700 ml formula from one tin of Kabrita 2.
14.5 g + 90 ml water makes 100 ml formula. 1 tin = 800 gram. 800/14.5 = 55 portions of 100 ml > about 5500 ml formula from one tin of Kabrita 3.
