Aptamil® Feed Thickener is suitable for thickening breast milk or an infant formula product. Thickened feeds may assist with the dietary management of regurgitation or mild reflux.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: To be used ONLY in combination with breast milk or infant formula, NOT as a sole source of nutrition.
For breastfed infants: Aptamil® Feed Thickener can be mixed with a small amount of cool 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 a standard formula and requires a thickened feed, Aptamil® Gold+ Reflux Infant Formula, which already contains thickener, is recommended.
