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 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 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 protein allergy?
CMPA 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, CMPA can be effectively managed and its impact reduced to a minimum. If you think your child has a cows' milk protein allergy, you should always get in contact with your Healthcare Professional for a correct diagnosis.

How to prepare our milk from powder
Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions, may make your baby ill.
Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers' instructions.
Boil freshly run water. Leave kettle to cool for 30 minutes. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water. Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle. Do not add powder to boiling water due to risk of scalding.
Always use the scoop provided. Level off the powder with the back of a clean knife. Do not press or heap the powder.
Add the correct measure of powder to the water. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful. Cap the bottle and shake well (for 10 seconds) to dissolve powder. Remove cap and replace with a sterilised teat.
Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed. Feed immediately.
Make up each feed as required. For hygiene reasons, do not store made up feeds and always discard unfinished feeds as soon as possible and always within 1 hour. Never add extra scoops or anything else to your baby's feed.Do not heat in a microwave, hot spots may occur and cause scalding. If necessary offer cooled, boiled water between feeds. Always use the scoop provided, please note the colour of the scoop in this pack may change from time to time.
