Did you know that follow-on milks help support a weaning diet?
At 6 months your baby may be trying lots of new things, from sitting up, to using a sippy cup and trying solids. Each new experience can help them build resilience and practise skills they’ll use later in life.
Between 6-12 months milk remains an important part of their diet, especially during weaning.
They still need 500-600ml of breast milk or formula milk a day
If you use formula milk, you could try stage 2 follow-on milk which contains vitamin D to help support the normal function of the immune system.
After six months your baby has an increased nutritional need for iron.*
*Based on UK Reference Nutrient Intakes for iron
Iron helps support normal cognitive development, making iron-rich foods an important part of their weaning diet.
Inspired by 40 years of breastmilk research, our team of scientists has developed our new patented next generation formulation.

Breastfeeding is best for babies. Follow-on milk is only for babies over 6 months, as part of a mixed diet. It should not be used as a breastmilk substitute before 6 months. The decision to start weaning including the use of this product before 6 months should be made only on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian, pharmacist, or other professional responsible for maternal and child care, based on baby’s individual needs.
