Hi my 8bl week old son has been on Aptanil Gold reflux for 2 weeks now he started having poos after every feed and changing him up to 10 times a day. We added 1 scoop of the aptamil Gold and he now gets 150ml he still has poos nearly after every feed and are quite soft or runny. Also I find when I mix 2 scoops of the reflux formula and 1 scoop or the aptamil Gold it doesn't get thick in the bottle

Hi
I am nearly finishing my first can of Aptamil Gold+ for my baby. I want to try the Aptamil profutura, will it be ok to make the transition straight away?

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hi Hyunhee, when baby is young, it's best not to change milk too often as it takes a week or two for baby to adjust to a new formula. If baby is not tolerating a formula or you see symptoms that concern you, then it's time to change to a better option once you know what that is. If you do want to make this change though, we suggest transitioning your baby over slowly from your present formula to the new one by mixing the two formulas together in the same bottle to minimize any digestive changes. You can do this as long as you are using the right scoop to water ratio for each formula. Start with smaller amounts of the new and increase this ratio over a few days. Kind regards, Hilary

Hi! I’d love to know if I am able to swap straight from aptamal colic and constipation to the normal gold plus or does it have to be gradual?

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hi Sabrina, we do recommend a gradual change over to ease baby's digestion with different formulations. Give us a call at the Careline and we can give you specific instructions for the volume you're feeding ph 1800 438 500. Cheers Sue Nutricia Careline

Hi I would like to know where to Aptamil label is written 4 months (to pass 200 ml) it is when the baby coming in the fourth month or when he finish the fourth month?
Same to pass to Aptamil Gold 2 , need to wait the end of sixth month?

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hi Alfredo, The feeding guide is just a guide; some babies want to drink more or less than the recommended amount. You can be guided by your baby' s appetite and increase the bottle volume to 200mL at 4m of age if you wish. Most babies over 6m continue to drink the 200mL bottle size but some like a larger volume so 250mL is also ok. If you would like any further advice please give us a call at the Nutricia Careline 1800 438 500

Hi, I'm using Aptamil Gold 1 for my baby, he is 2 months old, often he have colic and constipation, can I use Aptamil Colic and Constipation just one time per day? Or just in case? Thank you!

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hi Alfredo, we would recommend using the Aptamil Colic and Constipation for all feeds for your baby as your baby's colic or constipation is unlikely to be resolved with only one feed of Aptamil Colic and Constipation a day. Please contact Careline on 1800 438 500 or email nutriciacareline@danone.com and one of our dietitians or nutritionists can discuss this with you further. Warm regards, Caroline - Careline Nutritionist

To clarify, when the product states 3-5 feeds 'a day' is that a 24 hour period ?

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hi HMW, that is correct, when we refer to the number of feeds per day that means in a 24-hour period. Regards, Caroline - Careline Nutritionist

I was prescribed aptimal pepti junior for my 3 month old. He’s been on it for two days now and he refuses to drink more then 60mls, he constantly spits it up while crying and when I try to burp him he is hysterical. It’s quite watery aswell which he doesn’t seem to be a big fan of. Is there anything I can do to help him drink the full amount and to make it thicker?

Aptamil

Hi Hailey, we would be more than happy to provide you with some suggestions to get your little one to take the Aptamil Pepti Junior. Please give us a call on 1800 438 500 or email us at nutriciacareline@danone.com We look forward to hearing from you soon! Amanda - Nutricia Careline.

I love Aptamil Gold+. I want to ensure I'm using the right setting on the baby breeza formula maker advanced. I am using setting 4. Any help?

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hello Natasha, We would recommend that you contact Baby Breeza for this information. Traditionally we do not recommend to use a formula prep machine with our Aptamil Gold+ formula because it's preparation instructions are 1 scoop to every 50mls of water and a Baby Breeza machine makes the formula at a 1 scoop to 30mls ratio. This does not allow for proper dilution of our formulas and could cause the formula to be either too diluted or too concentrated and in the end be detrimental to your baby. Please contact us on 1800 438 500 or nutriciacareline@danone.com if you have any further questions. - Amanda, Nutricia Careline

Hi I have just changed my 3 weeks old from a different formula to aptimal gold
He’s not having the full bottle but he wants to feed every hour, is it okay to give it to him every hour? Also how long can I keep it in the bottle before throwing it out ?

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hi Mema, in theory yes, you can feed smaller volumes more often but baby should be able to feed at 2-3 hour intervals. Once you've made up a bottle, you need to throw away any formula after 1 hour. Please call us on 0800438 500 if you have more questions, regards Hilary

Hi There, bubs is now 6 months so gonna love to gold 2 soon. We have been mixing reflux with gold for the last two months. I find gold on its own too runny and she spits a lot of it up. Any suggestions on how to tackle this?

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hi Katerina, reflux in babies can last till they are about 8 to 9 months old and sometimes longer. It might be too soon for you to try and move from Aptamil Reflux to Aptamil Gold+ 2. You can also do a mix of Aptamil Reflux and Aptamil Gold 2. If you would like more information on this, please contact Careline at 1800 438 500 or email nutriciacareline@danone.com and one of our dietitians or nutritionists will be able to discuss this further with you. Warm regards, Caroline - Careline Nutritionist.

I started my 6 week old on aptimal gold plus colic and constipation a week ago and since then he’s been passing gas which has been smelling bad and for two days now he has been bringing up his feed an hr or so after and it’s quite watery and goes from a light milky colour to clear and it’s not a whole lot, maybe 10-15mls each bottle. He doesn’t seem affected by it at all but I’m just wondering if this is common to happen? I feel like the formula is quite watery compared to Karicare that he was on before hand. Not sure what I should do

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hi Hailey, it is not unusual for babies to have smelly gas in the Aptamil Colic and Constipation. The Aptamil Colic and Constipation can separate in the stomach which can then lead to watery vomit. If everything else is going well for your baby, these symptoms are not necessarily a health concern. Please contact us at Careline at 1800 438 500 or email nutriciacareline@danone.com and one of our dietitians or nutritionists will be able to discuss this further with you.

My son is on Aptamil gold plus and it says 50mls of water per scoop. My tommee tippee machine doesn’t have the option for 200ml for 4 scoops. It does have 7 oz option which is roughly 207ml. Is this safe to select for 4 scoops?

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hi Jaimie, we don't recommend using more water than instructed as this will dilute the formula which is not good for your baby. We recommend making the formula as instructed which means you will have to do it manually. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact one of our dietitians or nutritionists at Careline at 1800 438 500 or email nutriciacareline@danone.com.

May i still use apramil gold 1 in my 8months old baby incase aptamil gold 2 is not available?

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hi Sharon, yes, it's totally fine to go down a stage or 2 but not up to the next stage. A stage 1 formula is absolutely fine to drink up to 12 months or even beyond- a stage 2 is a choice. You can also order the stage 2 directly from us through external link  I hope this helps but please reach out again if you have more questions. Thanks, Hilary

Hi. I have recently changed my baby over to aptamil colic and constipation due to having suspected colic.
He is quite a big bubs and loves his feeds. Will he being feeling as full on the colic version with 120ml as he would of previously with gold at 150ml

Robbie K.
Robbie K. · Gold+

Hi I’m using the colic and constipation formula it has worked wonders with bubs constipation. he has reflux and the formula I was using previously gave him constipation (not aptimal) but he seems to constantly have a tummy ache I can also hear his stomach rumbling quiet often and he is consistently farting do you think I should switch to the aptimal reflux formula now that he’s not constipated? will this give him constipation like the other brands reflux formula did?

May I ask what you decided to do and if you found something that worked? Going through this at the moment

Firstly hi Robbie, the Colic and Constipation formula should in theory be a gentle formula so not sure why baby seems gassy on this. We would need to ask a few questions to be able to guide you better so please call us on 1800 438 500 so we can help you further. Thanks, Hilary

If Bubba doesn't suffer colic can I still use the formula for constipation?

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hi Keith, Yes the Colic and Constipation formula is suitable for either colic or constipation. Baby does not need to have both. If you would like any further info please call us at the Nutricia Careline 1800438500. Cheers Sue Careline Nutritionist

Hi! My bub just turned 1yr we are trying to start mix breastfeed and formula. But we noticed that she likes to drink more on stage 2. Is it still okay to give her stage 2? Or can we mix stage 2 and stage 3 in one bottle? What can you suggest to transition her to stage 3? Thanks

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hello, thank you for your enquiry. Nutritionally there is no problem with continuing to use stage 2 at this age. And you can take your time transitioning baby from stage 2 to stage 3 formula. We suggest transitioning baby over slowly by mixing the two formulas together in the same bottle to minimize any digestive changes. You can do this as long as you are using the right scoop to water ratio for each formula. Ideally, try this every feed, over 3-4 days.
Transition by having ¾ stage 2 formula with ¼ stage 3 for a couple of days, then ½ stage 2 formula with ½ stage 3 for a couple of days, then ¼ stage 2 formula with ¾ stage 3.
I hope this makes sense. Any questions please contact us directly at: Nutriciacareline@danone.com

Hi, we have just switched to Aptamil colic + constipation after using another formula for 1 month due to baby showing signs of constipation and or colic.

Everyone has advised to not use a gold product as it has more iron causing constipation? Can you please advise if this is correct as bub still appears to be irritable and passed quite a constipated stool after using the aptamil for 3days.

Thank you

Aptamil
Aptamil   DM   

Hi Broo, all infant formulas have a level of iron that is set by the Food Standards Australia and New Zealand. This means that all formulas have a similar level of iron. Gold+ does not mean the formula has more iron. We recommend using a new formula for at least a week so try the Aptamil Colic and Constipation for a few more days and things may settle for your little one. If you continue to have issues after using the Aptamil Colic and Constipation for a week, feel free to call Careline on 1800 438 500 or email nutriciacareline@danone.com and one of our dietitians or nutritionist will be able to help you further.
