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.

Atopic dermatitis is one of the first signs of allergy. Sometimes referred to as the ‘allergic march,’ some children with atopic dermatitis will go to develop a food allergy, rhinitis (hay fever) and/or asthma.2-3 So, it is crucial to take steps to reduce the likelihood of infants developing atopic dermatitis.
When introduced within the first 6 months of life, Aptamil has been clinically shown to:
Reduce the incidence of atopic dermatitis 6 months after feeding4
This reduction is sustained at 2 years and 5 years after feeding5,6
