Instructions for Use
Preparing thickened bottle feeds: Use expressed breast milk, or prepare infant formula as directed. Add to the bottle 2 scoops (8g) of Aptamil Feed Thickener for each 200mL of breast milk or formula. Shake vigorously. If baby continues to regurgitate, gradually increase to 3 or 4 scoops for each 200 mL. A medium-fast flow teat is recommended unless otherwise advised.
Preparing a gel: Sprinkle 1 scoop of Aptamil Feed Thickener into 20-30mL (approximately 1-2 tablespoons) of cooled, boiled water, expressed breast milk or infant formula. Whisk or mix vigourously to a thin paste. Increase up to 2 scoops if a thicker gel is needed. Feed the gel from a spoon, cup or plastic syringe, before, during or directly after the breast or bottle fed. Make into a paste to apply to the nipples.
Preparing thickened foods: Add Aptamil Feed Thickener gradually to foods such as soups, sauces, purees and custards, until desired texture is achieved.
Follow instructions as recommended. Do not change proportions of powder except on medical advice.
