Ask for advice from your healthcare professional before use
If you are concerned that your baby has colic or constipation you should speak to your healthcare professional.
Moving to the next stage
If you think your little one is ready to move on from Aptamil® Comfort, speak to a healthcare professional about the most suitable milk for your baby.
Aptamil® Comfort has a thicker texture than most other milks to help prevent your baby taking in too much air during feeding. We recommend using a variable flow teat or a single hole teat with a medium or fast flow.

To open, remove tamper evidence strip on the rim of pack.
There is a handy leveller built into the pack. Store your scoop in the lid so that it is kept safe and secure.

Preparing your baby's feed
Because powdered milks are not sterile, failure to follow instructions may make your baby ill.
1 Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers' instructions.
2 Boil 1 litre of freshly run water. Leave kettle to cool or 45 minutes and no longer. Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle. Be careful of scalding. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.
3 Using the scoop provided level off the powder with the built in leveller. Do not press/heap the powder.
4 Add one scoop to every 30m1 (1 fl oz) of water. Never add extra scoops or anything else to your baby's i feed. Cap the bottle and shake well (for 10 seconds) to dissolve powder. Remove cap and replace with a sterilised teat.
5 Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed. Feed immediately.
Due to the special ingredients in Aptamil® Comfort , the milk can separate once prepared. If this occurs, shake the bottle vigorously to mix and use as normal. You may notice that your baby's stools change consistency when using this formula. This is completely normal.
