How to prepare Aptamil Pepti 1
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 freshly run water. Leave kettle to cool for 30 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. Place the sterilised teat and cap on the bottle and shake vertically and vigorously for 25 seconds to dissolve the powder.
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.
