Contraindications for use

Aptamil® Gold+ Reflux Infant Formula is not suitable for general use and should be used under medical supervision. Not to be used for infants with a diagnosed cows’ milk protein allergy.

Direction of Use
  1. Wash hands before preparing the feed. Clean and then sterilise all utensils by boiling for 5 minutes or using an approved steriliser.
  2. Boil safe drinking water and allow to cool to feeding temperature. CONSULT FEEDING GUIDE. Measure the required volume of water into a sterilised feeding bottle.
  3. Use only the enclosed scoop. Fill the scoop lightly and level off using the built in leveler. Avoid compacting the powder.
  4. Always add 1 level scoop of powder for each 50mL of water. Cap the bottle and shake for 20 seconds. Leave to stand for up to 7 minutes to allow it to thicken.
  5. Test temperature on wrist before feeding. Feed immediately (do not store). Discard unfinished feeds.

Prepare each bottle separately. It is safer to use Aptamil Gold+ Reflux immediately after it is prepared. A fast flow or variable flow teat is recommended for this formula. The formula will continue to thicken after preparation and will remain thick in the stomach.

  • Store in a cool, dry place.
  • Use by the date on bottom of the container.
  • After opening, keep container airtight and use contents within four weeks.
  • Some settling of the powder may occur.
