At Booby Food, we don't use "average" water ratios. Your breastmilk is unique to YOU and your babe's needs. We provide you with a personalized water ratio customized to your freeze-dried breastmilk. Simply add good, clean water and serve, shaken or stirred.
Making a Bottle with Your Freeze-Dried Breastmilk
Rated 5.0 stars by 1 users
Making a bottle using your freeze-dried breastmilk is easier than putting on a wired bra again. Simply add water and serve, shaken or stirred. On the back of your Booby Food bag, you'll also see how many tablespoons are inside so you can customize bottles based on your babe's needs.

Important - Bottle Size
The water you're adding back to your freeze-dried breastmilk is the water we removed. When you make a bottle, you'll notice that there will be about 1/2 more breastmilk made (if using the whole bag). On your tips and tricks guide, you'll see what the actual bottle amount is from every bag.
This is because the weight of your powdered breastmilk + water makes a bottle that's larger in volume.
Or, think of it this way. When you run a bath for yourself (haha, like you have time for that) the water level is at one height, and after you get in the water level rises. Boom! same deal with your Booby Food bottles.
- For babes under 4m, you must sterilize the water first as reccomended by the CDC and WHO. To do this, simply bring water to a boil for at least 2 minutes, then set aside to cool.
- For babes older than 4m, use good, clean water to mix your Booby Food.
- Always measure your water before adding your freeze-dried breastmilk
High Fat Breastmilk
Breastmilk is not homogenized like store bought milk, meaning - the fat will seperate. you may have noticed this after refriderating or freezing your breastmilk. There is a fat layer on top of the bag/bottle or fat blobs throughout your frozen breastmilk. This is normal.
If you're one of the lucky mamas who has a higher fat content in your breastmilk, you may notice flecks within your bottle. To fix this, when you combine your freeze-dried breastmilk, let it warm a little longer together before shaking.
Think of it like mixing cold butter with water - if there's not enough time for the butter to melt, it will get flecks. Allow the fat to melt into the water for a few moments and your bottle will come out smooth and silky.
