How to use
Preparation and Usage
Preparing your baby's feed.
Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your toddler ill.
1 Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturer's instructions. Boil 1 litre of fresh water. Leave kettle to cool for 30 minutes and no longer. Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised beaker. Be careful of scalding. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
2 Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built in leveller. Do not press/heap the powder.
3 Add the correct measure of powder to the water. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful. Mix well (for 10 seconds) to dissolve the powder. Replace lid on beaker.
4 Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed. Feed immediately.
After 6 months, once weaning is established, your baby will need about 1 pint (500-600ml) per day. Aptamil Profutura Follow On milk is tailored to help meet the nutritional needs of infants from 6 to 12 months. This information is given as a guide only. Consult your healthcare professional if you require more advice.
Approx. 1 beaker: No. of level scoops per feed (1 scoop = 4.9g): 7, Quantity of water per feed: 210ml, 7fl oz
Make up each feed as required. For hygiene reasons do not store made up feeds, discard unfinished feeds as soon as possible and always within 2 hours.

Aptamil Profutura Follow On milk is only for babies over 6 months, as part of a mixed diet. It should not be used as a breastmilk substitute before 6 months, so if you wish to use this product before 6 months, we advise that you consult your healthcare professional Aptamil Profutura Follow On milk should be used 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.
