This is general guidance on the safe preparation of our powdered formula, but please see the product packaging for further information. All Aptamil® products carry preparation instructions. Please see packaging for further information. Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow the instructions may make babies ill.

Important feeding advice:

  • 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.
  • Do not heat feeds in a microwave, hot spots may occur and cause scalding.
  • Never add extra scoops or anything else to your baby’s feed.
  • Never leave your baby alone during feeding.
  • When bottle feeding do not allow prolonged or frequent contact of milk feeds with babies’ teeth as this increases the risk of tooth decay. It is important babies’ teeth are cleaned after the last feed at night

STEP 1. Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers’ instructions.

STEP 2. Boil 1 litre of freshly run water. Leave kettle to cool for 30 minutes and no longer. Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilized bottle. Be careful of scalding. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
