As a mother of three, I am now used to the juggles of life as a busy mum. Now Nico is eight months old, he seems to be growing and changing every day. As he grows, I want to ensure he is getting all the nutrients that he needs.

Aptamil Profutura 2 Follow On Milk is a brand which I personally trust and we started using Aptamil Follow On Milk over a decade ago with our daughter and then again with our middle son. I was first recommended to them by our family nanny who gave it to her three children over twenty years ago! From then on, they have always been my brand of choice.

Now that Nico is eight months old, we have started the transition to Aptamil Profutura 2 Follow On Milk. The transition has been really easy and seamless. He always seems to enjoy his 8oz three or four times a day alongside his balanced and varied weaning diet.

Aptamil® Profutura® 2 Follow On Milk (rel=”sponsored”) contains iron to support normal cognitive development as well as being a source of calcium and vitamins A, C and D. We currently give Nico three to four feeds a day following the instructions carefully as marked on the Aptamil® Profutura® 2 Follow On Milk product tub.

What makes Aptamil® Profutura®2 Follow On Milk different?

Aptamil® Profutura® 2 is their most advanced* follow on milk formulation, inspired by over forty years of Breastmilk research. As a premium follow on milk formulation it is the only formula in the UK with GOS/FOS (a blend of Galacto- and Fructo-oligosaccharides) and 2’FL (2′-Fucosyllactose)**.

With essential fatty acids (ALA & LA) needed for normal growth and development ,Aptamil® Profutura® 2 Follow On Milk has been specially formulated to nutritionally support Nico as he grows and develops. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2 g of α-linolenic acid (ALA) and a daily intake of 10 g of linoleic acid (LA). Additionally, Aptamil® Profutura® 2 Follow On Milk contains Omega-3 LCPs (Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids) “DHA” (Docosahexaenoic acid) to support the normal visual development of infants up to 12 months. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 100 mg of DHA.

Parenting is one of the hardest jobs we will ever do and most of the time, it can be difficult to know if we are doing things right! If you need reassurance or support with feeding, I was so pleased to know that Aptamil® Profutura® 2 Follow On Milk have a careline, so you can pick up the phone and speak to baby care advisor if you need to.

Furthermore, if you are a busy mum on the go, the ,Aptamil® Profutura® 2 Follow on Milk (rel=”sponsored”) liquid formulation is ideal for the changing bag. I rely on these handy 200ml bottles so much! Both the powder and the liquid formulation have been readily available both online and offline for me to buy. However, if you ever need an alternative place to purchase instead of your local supermarket, you can also buy online at ,Aptashop. Very handy to know!

What I love about Aptamil® Profutura® 2 Follow On Milk

With Aptamil® Profutura® 2 Follow On Milk, I just feel so confident that I can feed Nico with a product that he really enjoys and is their most advanced formulation*. I can honestly say that I would definitely recommend it to parents who are formula feeding their babies between 6 and 12 months.

Product Packaging

I love the packaging, which is a good design and it is recyclable as one whole piece! It has a clip to lock shut the tub, keeping it safe for longer as well as a handy scoop holder. It feels much more secure and great for if you need to take the tub out with you ensuring that there will be no spillages.

In summary, I’m really glad that we have been able to review this product and we plan to continue using ,Aptamil® Profutura® 2 Follow On Milk until he is twelve months old.

As parents, we often rely on recommendations and reviews from others, so this has been such an important, personal experience for me to be able to share my son’s early feeding journey with you. With parenting and feeding in general, the important thing to remember is that perfect parenting does not exist. What we just have to focus on is being the best parent we can be without the pressures to do it all perfectly. I am sure that you are doing a fab job right now and I hope this review might encourage you to give it a try too and let me know how you get on.
