Kirby Casked

I have had my 3 month old on Profutura since birth. I have looked everywhere for a tin lately and no one has any for sale! I am running low on the tin I have and will have to buy something else soon. What is the difference between Profutura and Gold+1? Is the Profutura coming back on shelves soon?

Profutura is sold online from Mumstore but it limits how many tins you could buy in certain period. Good luck.

I don’t think so, it’s just hard to come by. I ordered mine online as I was unable to get it anywhere in stores.

My bub is almost 6 month old and has no issues on aptamil profutura 1 ..... do I have to change to #2?

I don't know if it is essential, but I guess formula in different stages provide different nutrition, even different amount for the same nutrition. I always change to another stage. I hope it helps.

Nutricia Careline T.Aptamil

Hi Rebekka, thank you for your enquiry. Some people choose to leave their babies on the stage 1 until they are 12 months, some choose to just wait until their babies are established on solids over 6 months and some change to the next stage at the corrected age of the baby. All this is perfectly fine, the stage 1 is fine to use til the 12 months. If you would like more information please call us on 1800 060 057.

My daughter has just turned one and has been having the stage 3 for just over a week. She has had loose stools also about 5 per day for the last 48 hours, also to the point of a red sore bottom. We never had a problem with stage 1 or 2. I’m wondering if there’s something different in the 3 that is not agreeing with her.

This is aptamil gold + not profutura

Lia

Hi Leanne, i’ve asked a few pharmacist and GPs and they all recommended to continue using stage 2 and no hurry to change to stage 3. I did try aptamil stage 3 as well and my daughter still had the loose bowel motions. So I’ve decided to let her stay on stage 2. She 19 months okd now and still using stage 2. The Pharmacist stated stage 2 is still better for them because it’s similar to our breast milk and as for stage 3 they said it’s more like milk powder. Hope this is helpful info for you

Profutura 1

Hi! I used to use aptamil gold + and have recently started to try aptamil profutura and was wondering why the water amounts are different. At 4 months the gold + says to give 5 scoops for 250ml whereas the profutura says to give a 4 month old 3 scoops at 150ml. Why is the amount less? Is this enough for her after he has been drinking 250ml?

Profutura 1

Hello. My baby is 7mo and i am using aptamil profutura. As i am out of Australia nowadays. And i brought maximum boxes with me. But i think they are going to be finish soon.

Yes, you can. As you know there is a shortage of aptamil in australia i used to switch between these two. I used to buy whatever was available and had no issues. But now I am frustrated of searching aptamil on every shop i lnow as its very hard to find in Australia, Finally I started karicare which is available in all the shops and all the time on much reasonable price. Karicare is from the same company but different brand and my baby accepted karicare with no fuss.

Profutura 1

Hi I am currently using aptamil Gold for my 10 week old baby and am moving to Ireland soon, however, they do not sell this there...what is the best to use there that is the most similar? They have aptamil and aptamil profutura?
Thanks.

As I could remember, they sell aptamil and profortura in Britain. I think the situation would be similar in Ireland.

Aptamil
Nutricia Careline T.Aptamil

Hi there, The Aptamil Gold+ in Australia is equivalent to the Aptamil range in Ireland. You can use the Aptamil First Milk. The Aptamil First Milk is made with locally sourced ingredients so may taste a little different from the the Australian Aptamil. You can mix the 2 together to transition from one to the other. Just make sure you use the correct water to scoop ratio for each one. You can find out more about the formulas in Ireland on the following website www.aptaclub.ie. Please give us a ring on our toll-free number 1800 438 500 and one of our product specialists will be able to assist you further. Thanks - Nutricia Careline

Profutura 1

My baby has been on Aptamil Good since birth and mix fed. We tried Profutura in week 2 as she was struggling when passing a bowel movement and it was a lot better. This is our third tin of Profutura And now she's pooing every feed (even during a feed) and it's mucusy and stretchy. Has this happened to anyone else?

1 answer
Aptamil
Nutricia Careline T.Aptamil

Hi Blue2016, Sorry to hear that your baby has mucus in her poos after using the Profutura. Please discuss this with your doctor as this raises the possibility of allergy to the protein in the milk. If you would like to talk it through, please ring us on our toll-free number 1800 225 575 and one of our dietitians or nutritionists will be happy to assist you. Thanks - Profutura Careline.
