Judy Gilroy’s Baby Feeding Experience with Aptamil Organic Follow on Milk

Judy Gilroy, Fashion Stylist and Mum to Baby Stella, has been using Aptamil Organic Follow On Milk since Stella turned 6 months old. Judy is a First Time Mum and a busy one at that between her stylist shoots and presenting on Ireland AM. Below she tells us a little about her experience with Aptamil Organic Follow On Milk and how it fits in with her lifestyle and feeding schedule.


Our Journey with Aptamil Organic Follow On Milk

We started using Aptamil Organic Follow On Milk when Stella turned 6 months old. She seems to love it – she has always been a great feeder! – and it’s been a positive experience for me as a mum too. I always try my very best to make sure that she gets the best quality ingredients in her diet – whether that’s in her Follow On Milk or through the meals that I make for her - and Aptamil Organic Follow On milk is made from certified organic ingredients so it’s a really strong fit with our lifestyle. Organic credentials aside, I like that it’s easy to find in supermarkets too. As a working mum with limited time, you just can’t underestimate convenience!

Feeding Baby as a First Time Mum 

Feeding and sleeping were probably two of the biggest concerns or worries I had as a first time mum. I worried about so much and questioned everything – so it’s nice to be able to have confidence in the products you choose to feed your baby with. Aptamil Organic Follow On Milk has been created with 40 years of breastmilk research behind it which really gave me confidence in the product. I’m lucky that Stella took to feeding really well - she is a very happy baby which makes me a very happy mum.

Preparing Aptamil Organic Follow On Milk

 So how I prepare Aptamil Organic Follow On Milk… I have a little station set up in my kitchen with everything to hand, and then I just follow the preparation instructions on the pack – it’s foolproof. 

My favourite time of the day is the evening feed, which we do in the nursery with a story.

Creating a Feeding Schedule for you and baby

You can never be too organised as a working mum. Being a mum is busy at the best of times - never mind when work and life start to get a bit chaotic. Taking the time to plan and prepare feeds and meals makes things so much easier and it’s definitely something I try to do at the beginning of every week. Stella has a pretty watertight routine – she thrives on it – so all of her feeds, meals and sleeps happen at the same time everyday. A simple but effective tip is to make sure to clean and sterilise your bottles or beakers for the day ahead first thing in the morning so that they are always quick and easy to make. We also batch cook all of Stella’s meals on the weekend so that she always has a tasty and healthy meal ready to go, even on days when we are too busy to cook. 

Both my husband, Eoin, and I share the responsibility of feeding Stella. We both have been working from home throughout the pandemic which has been amazing in that we get to spend more time with Stella and share the load. My favourite time of the day is the evening feed, which we do in the nursery with a story. It’s such a calm space and a great way to get Stella to wind down after a busy day.
