Aptamil Anti-Reflux Milk Powder 900g
Babies often regugitate small amounts of milk after feeding, sometimes, with wind; this commonly referred to as posseting and is perfectly normal.
Aptamil Anti-Reflux is specially formulated with carob bean gum and is shown to be thicker on preparation than other feeds. It is less affected by the enzymes in saliva meaning that it remains thicker in the stomach, helping the feed to stay down.
It is a nutritionally complete formula. You can use it to feed your baby as a sole source of nutrition from birth and as part of a weaning diet from 6 months to 1 year.
If you are concerned that your baby has frequent reflux or regurgitation you should speak to your healthcare professional.

Preparing your baby's feed
Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your baby ill.
1. Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers' instructions.
2. Boil 1 litre of fresh water. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
3. Measure the required amount of boiled water into a large sterilised bottle. Be careful due to the risk of scalding. Seal bottle and allow to cool for 45 minutes.
4. Using the scoop provided, level off the powder with the built-in leveller. Do not press or heap the powder.
5. Add one scoop per 30ml (1 fl oz) of boiled and cooled water. Add the correct number of scoops to the water. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful.
6. Replace seal on bottle and roll the bottle upright between the palms of hands - roll it strongly for 5 seconds. The time between adding the scoops and rolling the bottle should be as short as possible.
7. Shake bottle for 20 seconds and then leave to stand for 7 minutes to allow it to thicken.
Important Feeding Instructions

Do not heat in a microwave, hot spots may occur and cause scalding. This product should not be used in combination with antacids or other feed thickeners. Never add extra scoops or anything else to your baby's feed. Never leave your baby alone whilst feeding.
