Aptamil¨Feed Thickener may also be used to thicken the fluids and foods of infants, children and adults. In all cases it should only be used under medical supervision.
For breastfed infants: Aptamil Feed Thickener can be mixed with a small amount of cool boiled water or expressed breast milk and fed as a gel before, during or directly after the breast feed. Alternatively it can be mixed with expressed breast milk to thicken the feed.
