Aptamil Formulation Update

Published on April 21, 2020

We’d like to share some information about an upcoming change to this formulation. The legislation that sets the nutritional composition of infant milks, follow on milks and specialist milks is changing. These changes apply to all formulas, including Aptamil. Baby formula is one of the most strictly regulated and tested food products in the world and we can assure you that both the current and soon-to-be reformulated Aptamil products have been developed with our latest research in early life science and are safe for babies.

What will be different?

There will be changes to the levels of some vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in our formulas in line with the legislation update. One of the main changes you will notice on our packs is an increased level of DHA, a type of Omega-3 fatty acid.

Your baby may notice a slight difference in taste, smell or appearance in the new formulation. Rest assured, this is completely normal.


When will the formulas change?

To ensure our products are always available to you, the updated formulations will gradually replace the current ones.

Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides many benefits. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, you eat a healthy, balanced diet. Combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breastmilk, and reversing the decision not to breastfeed is difficult. The social and financial implications of using an infant milk should be considered. Improper use of an infant milk or inappropriate foods or feeding methods may present a health hazard. If you use an infant milk, you should follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use carefully – failure to follow the instructions may make your baby ill. Always consult your doctor, midwife or health visitor for advice about feeding your baby.
