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 Growing Up Milk 1-2 Years

For toddlers from 1-2 years, specially formulated with our unique blend of GOS/FOS, plus iron and vitamin D to help support your toddlers growth and development.

Aptamil Growing Up Milk 1-2 Years

For toddlers from 1-2 years

Aptamil Growing Up milk 1-2 years is nutritionally tailored for toddlers. As part of a healthy balanced diet, your toddler could have 2x150ml beakers of Growing Up milk 1-2 years every day. That way you can help to ensure their daily nutritional needs are met.

Even with a well-balanced diet, research has shown that some toddlers in Ireland are not getting enough Iron and Vitamin D. This is where Aptamil Growing Up milk can help. Just two beakers a day (300ml) provide about half the iron and vitamin D your toddler needs.

Growing Up milk is proven to help reduce the risk of inadequacies of these two nutrients in the diets of toddlers aged 1-2 years*.

Iron supports cognitive development and Vitamin D is important for healthy bone development.
