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.
Aptamil Pepti 2 is for the dietary management of cows’ milk allergy (CMA). Suitable at around 6 months to complement a cows’ milk-free weaning diet.
Aptamil Pepti 2 is similar in composition to our standard Follow On milk, 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.
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, speak to your Healthcare Professional for advice.
Aptamil Pepti 2 supports a restricted, cows’ milk-free weaning diet for babies over 6 months, and includes extra calcium, vitamin D and iron. It is also made with 100% whey protein.
Aptamil Pepti 1 and 2 are the only extensively hydrolysed formulas to contain Galacto- and Fructo-oligosaccharides (GOS/FOS), long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPs) Omega 3 and Omega 6, and nucleotides.
