Aptamil Feed Thickener is a feed thickener suitable for thickening of breast milk or infant formula. To assist infants with regurgitation problems, Aptamil Feed Thickener can be used safely and effectively for thickening infant feeds. Thickened feeds may reduce regurgitation.
For Breastfed Infants: Aptamil Feed Thickener can be mixed with a small amount of cool boiled water or expressed breast milk and fed as a gel before, during or directly after the breast feed. Alternatively it can be mixed with expressed breast milk to thicken the feed.
For Formula Fed Infants: Aptamil Feed Thickener can be used to thicken standard infant formula, or special formulas. If a baby on standard formula requires a thickened feed, Aptamil AR Thickened Infant Formula, which already contains thickener is recommended.
For Thickened Food: Aptamil Feed Thickener can be used to thicken food such as soups, sauces, purees and custards.
DIRECTIONS FOR MIXING:
Preparing thickened bottle feeds: Use expressed breast milk, or prepare infant formula as directed. Add to the bottle, 2 scoops (8g) of Aptamil Feed Thickener for each 200mL of breast milk or formula. Shake vigorously. If baby continues to regurgitate, gradually increase to 3 or 4 scoops for each 200mL. A medium-fast flow teat is recommended unless otherwise advised.
Preparing a gel: Sprinkle 1 scoop of Aptamil Feed Thickener into 20-30mL (approximately 1-2 tablespoons) of cooled, boiled water, expressed breast milk or infant formula. Whisk or mix vigorously to a thin paste. Increase up to 2 scoops if a thickener gel is needed. Feed the gel from a spoon, cup or plastic syringe, before, during or directly after the breast or bottle feed.
Preparing thickened foods: Add Aptamil Feed Thickener gradually to foods such as soups, sauces, purees and custards, until desired texture is achieved.
Note: All formula feeds should be prepared immediately before feeding baby. Do not prepare gels, thickened feeds or thickened food in advance as thickness will increase on standing. Discard unfinished gels, feeds or food.
