Aptamil® Profutura® updated formulations
Our team of scientists has developed our latest patented Aptamil® Profutura® formulations to reflect our most recent scientific advancements. This update also includes changes to our First Infant Milk and Follow On Milk to meet new legislation which applies to all brands.
The formulations have been updated from January 2020 onwards and will have gradually replaced the previous ones in all retailers. The packs containing the updated recipes have a new look and are clearly labelled with “UPDATED FORMULATION".
Baby formula is one of the most strictly regulated and tested food products in the world and we can assure you that both the previous and reformulated products have been developed with our latest research in early life science and are safe for babies.

Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides many benefits. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, you eat a varied, 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.
Breastfeeding is best for babies. Infant formula is suitable from birth when babies are not breastfed. Follow-on milk is only for babies over 6 months, as part of a mixed diet and should not be used as a breastmilk substitute before 6 months. We advise that the use of all formula milks including the decision to start weaning should be made 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.
Use Growing Up milk as part of a varied, balanced diet from 1 year.
