Breastfeeding is best for your baby and provides many benefits.

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.

Aptamil Anti-Reflux

Aptamil Anti-Reflux is specially formulated with carob bean gum, which thickens the formula on mixing and remains thick in the stomach, helping the feed to stay down.

Aptamil Anti-Reflux

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.

What is Reflux and Regurgitation?

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.

How can Aptamil Anti-Reflux Help?

Thickened feeds are proven to help reduce the symptoms of reflux. Aptamil Anti-Reflux is a new thickened feed made using carob bean gum. It is clinically proven to be thicker on preparation than others and is less affected by the enzymes in saliva meaning that the feed stays thicker in the stomach. It also contains, long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPs) which are important for the development of your baby's brain, eyes and nervous system, and nucleotides which are important for healthy growth and development.

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.
