Breastfeeding is best for babies

By clicking the continue button, you will be able to view information about Aptamil infant milks and other products. If you choose to proceed, you are accepting that Aptaclub is supplying this information at your individual request for information purposes. Please consult a healthcare professional to make an informed choice on feeding your baby milks & weaning onto solid foods.

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 breast milk, 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.

Inspired by 40 years of research in early life science, our scientists have developed our latest patented powder formulation.

What has changed?

The latest Aptamil First Infant Milk powder combines our blend of ingredients with a new unique process. The pack design of Aptamil First Infant Milk has also changed, and features a new staging colour.


What has changed?

The formulation has changed on Aptamil First Infant Milk powder; combining our blend of ingredients with our new unique process.

The pack design for Aptamil First Infant Milk has also changed, with a different staging colour.

Have our ready-to-feed liquid products also changed?

For the time being, the unique process can only be applied to our powder formats. Our team of scientists and experts are currently working on making it available in liquid but at the moment our liquid bottles contain the same formulation as before. Please be assured, our latest powder formulation can be used in combination with the ready to feed formats, as per the back of pack instructions.

How do I switch?

Please be assured, you can safely switch to our latest formulation. When changing to a new formulation, some babies may need a little time to adapt as they may experience slight changes in digestion, however this should only be minimal and temporary. Our new formulation is a patented combination of our blend of ingredients and our unique new process. Clinical studies carried out on this combination have shown that the formulation is tolerated well by babies and safe to switch to. That being said, we always recommend seeking the advice of a healthcare professional when making any changes to how babies are fed.

Should I prepare the new formula differently?

Yes. Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturer's instructions. Boil 1 litre of fresh water. Leave kettle to cool for 30 minutes and no longer (allowing the water to reach 70°C once cooled from boiling). Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle. Be careful of scalding. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water. Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built in leveller. Do not press/heap the powder. Add the correct measure of powder to the water. This can be found in the feeding guide on the back of pack. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful. Replace lid on beaker. Shake vigorously and vertically for 10 seconds until the powder is dissolved. (Rolling the bottle or shaking in circles will not be sufficient). Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed. Feed immediately.

What age is the latest First Infant Milk suitable for?

Our First Infant Milk is suitable from birth to 12 months, if your baby is being combination or bottle-fed. The reason it says "birth - 6 months" is to enable parents to make clear distinctions and easily identify between products which are nutritionally complete and those which are suitable to complement a weaning diet from around 6 months. Our Follow On Milk, suitable from 6 months - 12 months, is tailored to complement a weaning diet. It contains vitamin D and calcium for normal growth and development of bone; and iron to support normal cognitive development as part of a varied and balanced weaning diet.
