Does baby need to move onto stage 2 straight away at 6 month? How long can U use stage 1 for?

1 answer
Aptamil
Nutricia Careline T.Aptamil

Great question Julz. The stage 1 formula is a breast milk substitute, so suitable to provide the milk portion of babies diet through to 12 months and beyond, in the same way that breast milk is suitable. No milk will meet all of babies nutrition needs after 6 months and solid foods are needed to add energy and nutrition.
So... if baby is settled and doing well on stage 1 milk, there is no need to change to a stage 2 unless you are wanting to do this. Do please call or livechat us if you would like to talk this through (1800 438500 or www.nutriciacareline.com.au).

Hi there, I started my son on Aptamil Gold +1 tonight, he was on Nan Gold but started refusing his bottles so i thought maybe he doesn't like the taste. He seems to like the Aptamil Gold+1 but i was wondering does anyone know why its so bubbly??

Hello Tash1984, Even it's bubbly for us. The reason for us is we are using anati-colic bottle which releases the air while my LO is feeding and hence it forms bubbles. You can check if you are also using anti-colic bottle.

Nutricia Careline T.Aptamil

Hi Tash1984, When infant formula is mixed with water and shaken, a stable foam will form on top of the milk. Milk proteins are excellent in producing foam bubbles as they are surface active molecules by nature. Different formulas will create a different level of foam depending on the processing parameters during manufacturing i.e. especially heat treatment. The fat and proteins in the formula help to stabilise the foam (keep the bubbles from popping).
To minimise the froth we recommend adding the measured scoops to the water, then capping the bottle and rocking and swirling it to mix, rather than shaking it up and down. This produces less froth. If there is still powder that has not dissolved you can give the bottle a quick shake. You can follow this with another round of rocking and swirling to mix to reduce any bubbles that may have formed during the shaking.
If your baby does swallow some of the froth, make sure your baby is burped during and after the feed. Burping baby will bring up any air that baby may have swallowed.

I can’t get this to dissolve without it ending up looking like a milk shake - any suggestions? It also stinks!? And the scoop is super annoying as it collected powder on the handle??!

Don't shake it so hard or try to dissolve the powder with your spoon as if dissolving sugar in water.

Gold+ 1

My daughter was 2.5 kg at birth and a dietian recommended using 3 scoops to 120 mls rather than the 150mls. Consequently she has had problems with constipation. Is the 30mls less each feed the likely cause of this issue?

Hi there,
You should follow the dosage on the pack.
If you start adding extra formula - the baby will get constipated.
Normally for constipation I would add an extra 5mls of water.
But DONT add any extra scoops of formula. I'm sure this would be very heavy on their small tummy.
When my baby was 6-7 months I added a teaspoon or two of Cerelac - it dissolves, and easier on tummy, helps to keep them fuller and of course add a bit of weight.
I hope this helps - it's a very good formula - one of the best in my opinion - use it as it's described and your baby I'm sure will be regular and happy.?

Hi Just wondering can we pre make the formula and store in the fridge made for 24hours? We are using 6 Dr Browns bottles to store pre mixed formula ready to feed.

Nutricia Careline T.Aptamil

Hi Tracey, We don't recommend premaking our formula and storing it. We follow the Australian Health Department Guidelines that state where you can you should make up formula straight before a feed. To make your life easier, you can measure out the cooled boiled water in your bottles and store them on the kitchen bench (they don't need to be refrigerated) and then just warm and add the powder as you need. Thank you for contacting us and if you need any other assistance, please contact us on our Careline on 1800 438 500 - Nutricia Careline

"you can measure out the cooled boiled water in your bottles and store them on the kitchen bench (they don't need to be refrigerated) and then just warm and add the powder as you need."

If we pre-measur the boiled water in the bottle.....can I warm the bottle of boiled water in MICROWAVE, then add the powder in?

Thank you
Fi

Nutricia Careline T.Aptamil

Hello Fi, The concern with warming the water in the microwave is that there can be hot patches in the water after heating. We just encourage that if you are going to use this form of heating that you shake the bottle after heating to disperse any hot spots. - Nutricia Careline

I love this product but it is out of stock alot and I have to change formula which I hate doing! Bubs seems to be ok when we do it but people have advised us not too. What can we do if its out of stock!! I went to 3 different shops yesterday and ended up getting S26 formula. I have noticed that S26 has less bubbles (gas) in it and bubs seems fine on it but we want to stick with the one formula, aptamil gold+
