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 breast milk research, our team of scientists have developed Aptamil Profutura Follow On milk. Nutritionally tailored for babies from 6–12 months, it contains our highest levels of DHA (Omega 3)* and iron to support normal cognitive development, along with vitamin D to help support the normal function of the immune system.
*33% more DHA (Omega 3) than in all Aptamil follow on milks.
Per 100ml of prepared feed (figures based on powder formula only).
*Long Chain Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (LCPs). Arachidonic acid (AA). Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
