How to use this product
Always take Aptamil Anti Reflux Milk Powder From Birth exactly as described on the box. As 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 the 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 the temperature of the feed. Feed immediately.
How does anti reflux formula work?
If your baby is experiencing a lot of reflux, there are a range of formulas available that are designed to fix the problem. These formulas are thickened to help the milk stay down in your baby’s stomach, managing reflux and regurgitation.
Is breastfeeding or formula feeding better?
Experts favour breastfeeding as you will pass on nutrients to your baby, giving them more protection against infections, allergies and certain conditions. However, breastfeeding isn’t possible for everyone, and formula feeding is still a great, healthy alternative to give your baby the nutrients they need to grow and develop as they should.
How long does formula last?
Once you’ve made up your formula, you can use it within 24 hours as long as you’ve stored it in a fridge. If you store your formula in a cool bag with an ice pack, you should use it within 4 hours, and if you store it at room temperature, you should use it within 2 hours.
Can you reheat formula?
Formula should be used immediately and you must not reheat it - if your baby starts a bottle of formula but doesn’t finish it within an hour, you should dispose of it. This is because reheating formula can lead to a lot of the essential nutrients being lost.
Store in a cool, dry place out of sight and reach of children. Do not use after the expiry date, referring to the last day of the month stated on the packaging.
