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 breastmilk, 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. Always consult your doctor, midwife or health visitor for advice about feeding your baby.

For the dietary management of frequent reflux and regurgitation in babies.
If you are concerned about reflux or you think that your baby may be suffering with it, the best thing to do is speak to your healthcare professional. They will be able to discuss any symptoms with you and offer suggestions as to how reflux can be relieved, including the use of a thickened formula such as Aptamil Anti-Reflux.
Reflux occurs when the stomach contents leak back into the oesophagus after feeding, with or without regurgitation, while regurgitation or posseting results in the stomach contents reaching the mouth. Both conditions can occur in healthy babies and are usually uncomplicated, with most of them growing out of it by the time they reach 1 year old.
Aptamil Anti-Reflux is a thickened feed made using carob bean gum. The carob bean gum thickens the formula, helping the feed to stay down.
Please note: As Aptamil Anti-Reflux is thicker than other milks; it is recommended that you use a single hole, fast flow teat when feeding your baby. Aptamil Anti-Reflux cannot be used in combination with antacids or other feed thickeners.
You may notice that your baby’s stools change consistency when using this formula. This is completely normal.

Our easy-to-follow guide shows you how to prepare a bottlefeed safely using our powder formula.
Wash hands and sterilise all equipment according to manufacturers' instructions.
Boil 1 litre of freshly run tap water. Leave kettle to cool for 45 minutes and no longer. Measure required amount of water (refer to on-pack 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 extra powder into scoop.
Add correct measure of powder to water. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful. Place the sterilised teat and cap on the bottle. Hold the bottle horizontally and shake from left to right for 10 seconds, then hold it vertically and shake from top to bottom for 10 seconds. The time between adding the scoops and shaking the bottle should be as short as possible.
Leave the bottle to stand for 5 minutes to allow it to thicken. Turn the bottle upside down just before feeding. Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed by allowing some drops to fall on your wrist. Feed immediately.
