Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides many benefits. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, you eat a healthy, balanced diet. Combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breastmilk, and reversing the decision not to breastfeed is difficult. The social and financial implications of using an infant milk should be considered. Improper use of an infant milk or inappropriate foods or feeding methods may present a health hazard. If you use an infant milk, you should follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use carefully – failure to follow the instructions may make your baby ill. Always consult your doctor, midwife or health visitor for advice about feeding your baby.

Aptamil Pepti 1

Suitable from birth, Aptamil Pepti 1 is formulated for the dietary management of cows’ milk allergy (CMA).

How it works

Aptamil Pepti 1 is similar in composition to our standard infant milks, apart from the protein which has been broken down (extensively hydrolysed) to make it less likely to cause an allergic reaction. It also includes lactose for improved taste, to help your baby enjoy each feed and support weight gain.

What is cows’ milk allergy?

CMA is the most common food allergy in infants. Although most children eventually grow out of their milk allergy, its diagnosis and management can be a worrying time for parents. The good news is, with prompt diagnosis by a healthcare professional, treatment and expert dietary advice, CMA can be effectively managed and its impact reduced to a minimum. If you think your child has a cows' milk allergy, you should always get in contact with your healthcare professional for a correct diagnosis.
