How do I know if this product is right for my baby?

Aptamil is a milk-based formula with intact proteins (non-hydrolyzed) and is suitable for most babies from birth through 12 months of age. It meets all FDA nutrition requirements for infant formula and provides the nutrition needed to support growth and development of healthy infants.

Please note, this product is not hypoallergenic and not intended for babies with cow’s milk allergies. For infants born prematurely or with a low birthweight, with low iron levels at birth, or infants who are at risk for becoming iron deficient due to illness, additional iron may be necessary. Aptamil First Infant Milk powder infant formula provides 0.8 mg of iron/100 kcal (0.53 mg/100 ml). This level of iron is appropriate for normal-birth-weight, healthy, term infants and is consistent with European recommendations (EFSA, 2014; ESPGHAN CON 2014). Infants born prematurely or at a low-birth-weight have higher iron requirements and may require supplementation. Speak to your child’s pediatrician about the potential need for iron supplementation if your child was born prematurely, at a low birth weight or was born with low iron levels. 

How do I prepare my baby’s milk?

Labels in Europe instruct consumers to boil water. Consistent with that approach, the label for Aptamil recommends heating water first to 160°F (70°C) and letting it cool. 

Step 1 

Wash hands and surfaces, pour desired amount of warm water approximately 100° F (40° C) into a clean bottle. 

Step 2 

Using the scoop provided, level off the powder. Add the correct measure of powder to the water. 

Step 3 

Mixing instructions require 1 scoop (4.6g) per 1 fluid ounce (30mL) of water. 

Step 4 

Cap bottle and shake well until powder is dissolved. Feed immediately and discard used formula within 2 hours. 

Step 5 

Store open and unopened containers in a dry area at room temperature and use contents within 4 weeks of opening. 

Your baby’s health depends on carefully following the preparation, use and storage instructions on the label.  Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm.  Before preparing the infant formula, make sure to always wash your hands, and thoroughly wash bottle and feeding utensils in hot soapy water before each use. Ask your baby’s doctor about the need to boil or sterilize water for formula and the proper preparation of bottle and feeding utensils.  

Warning: Do not use a microwave to prepare or warm formula, serious burns may occur. Do not freeze and avoid any extreme temperatures.  Close the opened container tightly with the plastic lid.  Do not reuse container.  Do not use if inner or outer seal is damaged or missing.
