Aptamil Gold+ Reflux

Formulated for regurgitation or mild reflux

Product Information

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 regurgitation or mild reflux.

  • Thickened premium infant formula, maintains thickness in the stomach
  • Nutritionally complete from birth to 6 months, or as part of a mixed diet from 6-12 months

Nutricia Aptamil Reflux
