After 6 months, once weaning is established, your baby will need about 1 pint (500-600ml) per day. Aptamil Follow On milk is specially formulated to help meet the increased nutritional needs of infants from 6 to 12 months. This information is given as a guide only.

Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions, may make your baby ill. Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers' instructions. Boil 1 litre of fresh water. Leave kettle to cool for no longer than 30 mins. Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised beaker. Be careful of scalding.
