Aptamil® Gold+ Reflux premium infant formula
Aptamil® Gold+ Reflux is a specialty infant formula for the dietary management of regurgitation or mild reflux. It is a thickened formula, designed to thicken further in the stomach. It is nutritionally complete from birth to 6 months, or as part of a mixed diet from 6-12 months. It is suitable for use during and after reflux is resolved.
Babies often spit up small amounts of milk after feeding (commonly known as reflux or regurgitation). However, some babies may suffer from more frequent regurgitation.
This formula is thickened with carob bean gum, helping the formula to stay in the stomach, which may help reduce the severity and frequency of regurgitation episodes. This is a key element for the dietary management of reflux or regurgitation.
