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.
Suitable from birth, Aptamil Comfort is formulated for the dietary management of colic and constipation.
Aptamil Comfort is proven to help soothe the symptoms of colic and constipation. It is nutritionally tailored, with our unique blend of Galacto- and Fructo-oligosaccharides (GOS/FOS), and contains less lactose than standard milks, to reduce gas and other intestinal discomfort.
Colic usually involves repeated, excessive, and inconsolable crying. If your baby has constipation, they will have fewer bowel movements or may have difficulty passing unusually small, or large, hard stools.
If you think your baby has colic or constipation, speak to your Health Visitor or Pharmacist for advice.
