When can I use it? 

This product is designed to meet the nutritional needs of infants from birth to 6 months.

Price

$24.99 for a 900g tin. 

Pros

Many parents said their babies took this formula without any issues. Aptimal’s strong focus on nutrition and research was also a plus. As well as tins, Aptamil Gold+ 1 is available in sachets, which some parents said was very handy for babies who drink formula occasionally. 

Aptamil Gold+ 1 is also the cheaper option of the two. 

Cons

On the other hand, some parents said Aptamil Gold+ 1 didn’t agree with their little ones. However, there are more positive reviews than negative ones. 

Example review

“I introduced this formula to my 2mo after a suggestion by a friend. He accepted it immediately and didn’t have any ‘side effects’ like extra gas, rash or colic. I moved to exclusively formula-fed at 3 months and this is the formula I trusted! Now, at 8mo I continue using this brand (for older kids).”

Pros

Some parents in the Tell Me Baby community said this formula worked a treat for their babies – it was gentle on the stomach and didn’t cause any other problems. 

Cons

Other reviews said their baby didn’t take to this formula. Another con was the price, but many said it was worth it. Some said Aptamil Profutura 1 was difficult to find in shops. 

Example review

“I LOVE this formula. I brought my own to the hospital as I wanted the best formula (Aptamil) from the get go. And I emailed Nutricias nurses to find out the difference between this and their pronutra and chose this due to being closest to breastmilk. Easy to make and baby feeds so easily and keeps it down. So happy with my choice. Just make a few bottles in the morning to last the day and I’m good to go!”
