I can’t find my administration syringe, what else can I use to measure my baby’s serving amount?
We recommend using an administration syringe that you may have from another Mommy’s Bliss product that allows you to measure the proper serving amount, as indicated on our package directions. If another syringe is not available, you may administer the product using a graduated medicine cup or dropper to measure out the required serving amount. If you do not have a syringe or alternative measuring tool, give us a call, 877-457-4955, and we’ll be glad to help.
