Great product for transitioning
My bub was lactose intolerant and was on the pepti jr range since birth and it helped her soooo much! She was much more settled, less crying and happier in general. I used the range to transition her onto regular formula and she’s 8 months now and very happy. Highly recommend
Perfect. Only formula our baby can tolerate
Our baby would eat anything if she could but unfortunately most don’t agree with her tummy. It’s the only formula we’ve found she doesn’t get wind and an upset belly with. It’s easy to prepare and I love that we can buy individual serves in sachets for when we’re out and about!
After trying numerous formulas this is the only one our bub seemed to tolerate well. Resolved colic and other digestive issues and he loves the taste. Easy to mix and prepare!
Perfect!! My baby loves it!
We have tried multiple formulas and this one has had my far the best results! Baby has had no issues while being in this formula! Great affordable price also! Love it
My baby loves it
Good, easy to mix. My bay girl loves it and rejects any other formula. Tried Aptamil for colics but she didn’t like it. Aptamil 1 and 2 are good and I would recommend.

Perfect transition from exclusively breastfed
My baby was exclusively breastfed until 10 months old. After hearing lots of troubles from other mums about their baby liking formula, I was glad aptamil sold sachets so I could try the formula on my baby before committing to a whole can. Also allowed me to have back up formula should I not be able to breastfeed for whatever reason (going out, unable to make it home in time etc). My baby likes the formula and took it straight away, so now she is 16 months and still drinking it as she prefers it to cows milk. Just leaving a bigger hole in my wallet, but at least I know she’s getting good nutrients
Purchased in May 2019.
My baby boy loves this milk. Used this to wean him iff breasfeeding and he took to it well. Not too thin and fills him up. Not too pricey either. Very easy to prepare. Would highly recommend
Baby enjoys drinking this formula. Baby has been having aptamil since birth. Does not have a strange smell and baby does not get constipated or has diarrhoea. Paired with the right feeding bottle baby had minimal colic when he was less than 6 months old. Formula is also easy to prepare and dissolves in lukewarm water easily. Love this formula. My daughter also was on the Aptamil range when she was a baby. It also has a good stock supply in most groceries. Aptamil also has the sachets for sale, which is good for trials so you don’t have to buy the whole can or good to bring for short travels.
Great formula for baby!
Recommend aptamil formula- baby has been using it since birth and we have had no problems. Easy to use and measure. Stocked at a variety of places and easy to find. Also comes in travel sachets which is really handy when going on trips! Baby enjoyed the taste and it stayed fresh!
Great baby formula
Have tried a lot of baby formula brand but my son just refused to drink them so that my sister recommend this aptamil gold+ 2 for my son. After my son tried it, he seem really love it! This formula is quite easy to prepare even if outdoor i still can prepare it.
My babies have always been happy to enjoy the bottle when given. There has been no reactions by any of the children. The formula is very easy go prepare if your organised. The quality of the product has not changed and have stuck by it. Travels well when needed also which is s bonud6
Didn’t work for our baby.
We gave our baby Aptamil since birth on our hospitals recommendation. It was fine until we changed to gold 2 at six months. Our baby suffered from reflux and was medicated. We even used the thickener to help. At about 7 months the reflux started getting better but instead hour Baby would projectile vomit everything that they drank. Even after burping. Baby is now 10 months and the projectile has become more frequent and its only during feeds. There are no allergies to any food but they are flat out refusing the formula. We have noticed that the...formula smells absolutely putrid after the baby is finished drinking. We haven’t used the thickener for a few weeks as the reflux is better. Our baby doesn’t projectile every feed but it got to at least once a day. It was only ever the formula that did it. We decided to change the formula within a week of a completely different brand our baby is drinking so much better. It isn’t a fight anymore. There’s no projectile vomiting and no putrid smell. I personally feel terrible feeding my baby someone that made me sick to smell it.
This is a good product, my baby liked it. This product also helped my baby for colic discomfort and tummy pain. Its easily available in the shops. It gets a bit frothy when you make it, this is the only thing which i don't like comparatively other baby formula i used before.
Perfect for my baby
Aptamil has always been the milk we used as my baby was born premature. The doctors at king edward memorial hospital have always recommended this milk. My baby has grown so nicely and healthy and premature seems like a far talk now. This milk was also recommended by my friends and family.

Really easy to drink
Formula is a bit more on expensive side compared to there but well worth the price. Really easy to prepare as per instructions. Baby enjoys drinking this over others. She has a sensitive tummy but since having this, she does not spit up or have any tummy pains anymore. Really happy I switched to this brand and will not change again.
We selected this formula due to the lower protein content compared to other brands.
Our baby was mixed feed until 10 months old when we chose to use formula full time.
Baby seemed very happy drinking it with no side effects noted. The only issue was it look a little extra time to properly mix the formula in the bottle.
Generally this formula was available, unlike the profutura which is constantly sold out.
Very good produce
My kids is already 4 years old but sometimes supermarket is out of stock of formula stage 3 or 4
so we have to bought the stage 2.it is not bad and the nutrition even more better than stage 3 or 4 because I compare it with stage 3 and 4
it is good and my kid like it
When my baby was less then 1year old, i always fed her with this products since a lot of people say the brand is very good. My girl is very healthy and energetic maybe i chose a good fomular for her. She never refused or had bad reaction with this products.
We chose Aptamil as it is used at the local hospital where bub was delivered. Readily available from our local Coles, often at a small discount. Bub seems happy with it. Ratio of milk to water may be different from other brands (eg Bellamys) so make sure you read the instructions. Our only minor gripe is that the scoop has a silly design where you will inadvertently get some powder on the handle.
Fix the rings to open!!
Great formula BUT this is the second time this has happened! The ring is now so thin and flimsy to open I’ve cut my finger on the ring to open. It used to be so easy to open and now the ring splits and can cause seriously injury to the parent. I’m now bleeding (again) as the metal ring broke.
Questions & Answers
My baby has recently turned 6 months and I switched from stage 1 to stage 2 right away. She is VERY slowly starting solids but not taking to it very well. Since switching formulas she has had runny poops and several times a day. Also more gas than usual.
Previous to the switch she was a very regular pooper once or twice a day at about the same time every morning.
I am thinking to switch back to stage 1, is this the right option?
Nutricia Careline T.Aptamil
Hi Ally, you can switch back to the stage 1 as it will still contain enough nutrition for 6 month old. Please call us at the Careline AU 1800 438 500 or NZ 0800 438 500 and one of our dietitians or nutritionist will be able to assist you further. Warm regards, Caroline - Careline Nutritionist
Hi my child is over 1 year old and I start Aptamil 3 for her but she get diarrhea and dr said stop that and continue with Aptamil 2. It’s more than 2 weeks her diarrhea is not getting better. I’m so confused what to do and what shall I give to her. Please help me
Hi Mary, the stage 3 Aptamil Gold + has higher levels of prebiotics ( for bowel health ) and also has a higher proportion of casein to whey ( amongst other differences). Some babies are particularly sensitive to this and some have digestive changes which should settle after a week or two. Please call us on our Careline 1800 438 500 if your baby is still unsettled so we can help. Kind regards, Hilary Reg.Nutritionist
