Aptamil Anti-Reflux is a specially thickened formula, designed to help feeds stay down. Suitable from birth, Aptamil Anti-Reflux is formulated for the dietary management of frequent reflux and regurgitation. If you think your baby has frequent reflux speak to your health visitor or pharmacist for advice
How it works
Thicker foods are proven to help reduce the symptoms of reflux. Aptamil Anti-Reflux is specially formulated with carob bean gum so that the milk is thicker in consistency. It is clinically proven to be thicker on preparation than other anti-reflux formulas, and it also stays thicker in your baby’s stomach.
What are reflux and regurgitation?
Reflux in babies occurs when the contents of the stomach move back into the oesophagus after feeding. Regurgitation (or possetting) means the stomach contents come up into your baby’s mouth.
If you think your baby has reflux, speak to your Healthcare Professional for advice.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Aptamil Anti-Reflux is a food for special medical purposes for the dietary management of frequent reflux and regurgitation. It should only be used under medical supervision, after full consideration of the feeding options available including breastfeeding. Suitable for use as the sole source of nutrition for infants from birth, and/or as part of a balanced diet from 6-12 months

How to prepare Aptamil Anti-Reflux milk
Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your baby ill.
Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers' instructions.
Boil 1 litre of freshly run water. Leave kettle to cool for 45 minutes and no longer. Measure the required amount of water (refer to 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 the powder.
Add the correct measure of powder to the 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. Check temperature of feed. Feed immediately.

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 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.
Do not use if your baby has been diagnosed with a cow's milk allergy.
Use Growing Up milk as part of a varied balanced diet from 1 year.
