Is it normal to have gelatine looking bits all through it? I was using sma but switched to this because of colic and constipation and it’s got gelatine looking bits through it?

1 answer
Aptamil
Stuart S.Aptamil

Hi Talishia, It sounds like you have bought the Aptamil Colic and Constipation. This formula can have a grainy look to it and looks like it has bits through it and is also a little thicker than our standard formulas. If you have bought the Aptamil Colic and Constipation then that is quite a normal appearance, but if you have bought the standard Aptamil Gold + formula then it should just look like milk and not have gelatine bits though it. Please call us on the Careline AU 1800 438 500 or NZ 0800 438 500 and one of our product specialists can discuss this further with you. Warm regards, Caroline - Careline Nutritionist

Hi there
My 9 wks baby is constipated. Can I use aptamil colic and constipation. Will my baby still get enough nutrients. Also recommended dose is 120 mls for 1-2 months and 150 mls for 3-4 needs. My bub is 9 wks, should I give him 120 or 150mls?

1 answer

Tricia D.

Hi Sara. Yes the Aptamil Colic & Constipation is a complete feed for a baby under 6 months, so baby will get all the nutrients he needs when fed in sufficient volume. Babies are best fed to appetite and the feeding guide is not prescriptive, so give the same serve that you were giving with the previous milk (until baby is not satisfied and settling after a feed).
If you would like to talk through this change of milk, do please give us a call (1800 438500) or livechat us (www.nutriciacareline.com.au) at the Careline so that we can support you and your little one.

Stuart S.Aptamil

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

Since starting the formula my baby is suffering from constipation and bad wind. He only goes every 8-10 days and explosive. I’ve tried s26 except the wind pain was extreme. Just wondering if I should change is formula or if there is something I can do? - he only gets one bottle a day which is at night.

Gold+

Hi my 8 weeks daughter has been on aptamil gold since last week. The milk seems to be very frothy and she is passing lot of wind. Can froth cause wind or is this Normal? Should we prepare the milk in advance so the froth settles?

1 answer
Aptamil
Stuart S.Aptamil

Hi there Dolly.
We do expect babies to be quite windy for the first 12-16 weeks of life as their gut microbiota develop. The NZ base powders used in Aptamil Gold+1 do appear to make more foam/froth on top of the milk when shaken vigorously. A gentle swirling to mix or rocking backwards and forwards with the wrist should make the milk up with less froth/foam. The foam will stay on top of the milk so won’t affect baby whilst drinking.
It's better to make the milk fresh for each feed to keep risk as low as possible. The Australian Guidelines advise discarding a bottle of mixed milk after 1 hour at room temperature.
Most modern bottles have 'anti-colic' valves, so that the air from the froth does not get swallowed by the baby. The foam will stay on top of the milk so won’t affect baby whilst drinking. Our quality team have checked and believe the foam/froth will not impact the delivery of the formula to the baby or increase the level of ‘wind’ or ‘gas’.
DO feel free to call us on our toll free number 1800 438500 if you'd like to talk this through with one of our Dietitians, Nutritionists or Midwives.
Thanks from Kristin at the Nutricia Careline

I have a 4 week old, I tried another brand of formula once and my little girl sufffered badly from constipation. Any advice to introduce this correctly?

I tried other brands on my little one and she had the same issues. I didn't have that problem with Aptamal but it all varies on each babies tummy and what they will tolerate. It's sometimes a trial situation to see which ones suites. Aptamal has different ones for sensitive tummies as well. My little one had silent reflux so this one helped elevate that for her as well. She wasn't constipated on this one she loved it too. I started her at six weeks with mixed breast feeding as I weaned her off. I'm not sure if that made a difference.

I forgot to add I used infants friend to help with wind and constipation. But best to speak to your doctor or chemist before using. It was amazing help.

Niraj Sasked

Gold+

Can I add this formula with milk?

1 answer
Aptamil
Nutricia Careline T.Aptamil

Thank you for your query Niraj S. The Aptamil Gold+ for babies under 12 months (stage 1 and stage 2) are designed to be mixed as 1 scoop per 50ml water to provide the nutrients and energy that babies need from their milk. Mixing with any liquid other than cooled boiled water is not recommended and could be problematic for babies health. For toddlers over 12 months, the Aptamil Gold+ Nutritional Supplements (stage 3 and stage 4) are a whole milk drink with age-specific nutrients added. Concentrating a milk supplement by mixing with milk should only be done under the advice of your Dietitian or Doctor. Please do call us on 1800 438500 if you would like personalised advice for your little one.
Thanks

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??

3 answers

Amit

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.

Yeah I'm really not sure to be honest I thought the same thing I started my son on A2 milk and changed it for that exact reason but he seems to like the aptimil

Aptamil
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.
