Feeding Guide

For breastfed infants

Aptamil Feed Thickener can be mixed with a small amount of cooled boiled water or expressed breast milk and fed as a gel before, during or directly after the breastfeed. Alternatively, it can be mixed with expressed breast milk to thicken the feed.

For formula fed infants

Aptamil Feed Thickener can be used to thicken standard infant formula products, or specialty formulas. If an infant is on standard formula and requires a thickened feed, Aptamil Gold+ Reflux Infant formula, which already contains a thickener, is recommended.
