How to prepare Aptamil Pepti 2
Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your baby ill.
Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturer's instructions.
Boil 1 litre of fresh water. Leave kettle to cool for no longer than 30 mins.
Measure the required amount of water 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 a clean knife. 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. Cap the bottle and shake vigorously for 25 seconds
to dissolve the powder. Remove cap and replace with a sterilised teat.
Cool under running tap. 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.
Use Growing Up milk as part of a varied balanced diet from 1 year.
