How does Aptamil Pepti-Junior work?
Aptamil Pepti-Junior is formulated for the dietary management of malabsorption related conditions, in which the digestive and absorptive functions of the gastrointestinal tract are impaired, for example short bowel syndrome, following gastro-intestinal surgery, liver disease, chronic diarrhoea and feed intolerance.
Aptamil Pepti-Junior is an extensively hydrolysed whey based formula. It contains 50% of the fat as medium chain triclycerides (MCT) and the carbohydrate as glucose syrup to aid absorption. It is a nutritionally complete formula, suitable from birth, and can also be used to replace cow’s milk in drinks and cooked dishes with the introduction of weaning. Due to the formulation of Aptamil Pepti-Junior you may notice that your baby’s stools become looser and more green in colour.

How to prepare Aptamil Pepti-Junior
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 10 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.
