Aptamil 1 First Infant Milk Product Description
Aptamil 1 First Infant Milk is a nutritionally complete, whey-dominant first infant milk for use in combination feeding or if a baby is not being breastfed. As well as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals, it contains our patented blend of galacto- and fructo-oligosaccharides (GOS/FOS), which emulates the effect of the prebiotic oligosaccharides found naturally in breastmilk.
Why Aptamil 1 First Infant Milk?
Aptamil 1 First Infant Milk contains GOS/FOS, non-digestible carbohydrates that occur naturally in breastmilk. They decrease the presence of pathogens in the gut flora increasing the growth of friendly bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli. These friendly bacteria are an integral part of a baby’s natural immune system.
Aptamil First Infant Milk is enriched with LCPs, including DHA (Omega 3), at levels that are scientifically recognised by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to support normal visual development and with a ratio of AA:DHA that meets consensus recommendations.
It also contains nucleotides, which form the building blocks of every cell in the body, including those of the immune system.
Importance of GOS/FOS
Our patented blend of galacto- and fructo- oligosaccharides (GOS/FOS) emulates the effect of the prebiotic oligosaccharides (OS) found naturally in breastmilk. They feed the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut at the expense of potentially harmful bacteria, bringing the internal microflora closer to that of a breastfed infant.
Bottle-fed babies given formula containing GOS/FOS have softer stools and a lower incidence of recurrent upper respiratory tract infections, diarrhoea, infections requiring antibiotics and atopic dermatitis, than those fed a formula without GOS/FOS. These benefits have been shown to last for up to 5 years.
How to prepare Aptamil 1 First Infant Milk

Important Notice about Aptamil 1 First Infant Milk
Breastfeeding is the best for babies. Aptamil 1 First Infant Milk should always be used on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietician, pharmacist, or other professional responsible for maternal and childcare. When bottle feeding do not allow prolonged or frequent contact of milk feeds with your baby’s teeth as this increases the risk of tooth decay. Ask your health professional or dentist for advice. Make sure your baby’s teeth are cleaned after the last feed at night.
