We have recently changed the suggested use directions of our products to reduce the amount given per serving for younger infants but to increase the possible frequency of administration.
The total maximum amount (volume) consumed per day would remain the same with the new instructions.
We have made this change to help some parents who found that giving the entire suggested amount per
Serving to their infant in one sitting was challenging.
If you and your child have found that the previous use instructions work well for you, then by all means you can feel safe in continuing to follow those.
