Important notice and declaration
Breast milk is best for babies. Professional advice should be followed before using an infant formula. Introducing partial bottle feeding could negatively affect breast feeding. Good maternal nutrition is important for breast feeding and reversing a decision not to breast feed may be difficult. Infant formula should always be used as directed. Proper use of an infant formula is important to the health of the infant. Social and financial implications should be considered when selecting a method of feeding.

Aptamil® Gold+ Pepti-Junior from birth
(0-12 months)

A premium extensively hydrolysed infant formula suitable for infants from birth with malabsorption or with confirmed mild to moderate allergies to cows' milk protein or soy protein when a partial or total breast milk substitute is required. Nutritionally complete for formula fed infants 0-6 months.


Features and Benefits

A premium, extensively hydrolysed infant formula with short chain peptides, specific fat blend with medium chain triglycerides (MCT), omega 3 and omega 6 LCPs#, and low osmolality. Suitable for infants with malabsorption or with confirmed allergies to cows’ milk protein or soy protein when partial or total breast milk substitute is required.

  1. Improved digestion/tolerance

    Improved absorption and digestion due to the presence of:

    • An easy to digest fat blend including MCT/LCT.##1
    • Low osmolality.
    • <0.1g lactose per 100mL of feed.
  2. Low allergenicity
    • Low allergenicity with intact cows’ milk protein broken down to small hypoallergenic peptides (extensively hydrolysed). This makes Aptamil® Gold+ Pepti-Junior suitable for infants with food allergies and intolerances such as cows’ milk and soy protein allergy.
    • An extensively hydrolysed formula (eHF) such as Aptamil® Gold+ Pepti-Junior is recommended as the first choice for infants under 6 months of age, for treating mild to moderate cows’ milk protein allergy.2,3
    • An eHF provides effective management of up to 90% of infants with uncomplicated mild to moderate cows’ milk protein allergy.4,5 If treatment with this initial formula is not successful, use of an amino acid formula (AAF) such as Neocate is recommended.2,4
  3. Nutritionally complete for infants 0–6 months and suitable for use in a mixed diet for infants 6-12 months.
    • Vitamins and minerals to support infant growth and development.
    • Omega 3 DHA and omega 6 AA†† LCPs# to help support brain, eye and nervous system development.6-8

Indications

Infants from birth with mild to moderate cows' and soy milk protein allergy or malabsorption where breast milk is unavailable as a partial or complete breast milk substitute.

Contraindications

Allergy to extensively hydrolysed cows' milk formula, severe (anaphylactic) cows' milk protein allergy, galactosemia and primary lactose intolerance.

Available on PBS.
