If you have been following me at all on Instagram, you will already have some insight into mine and Edie’s feeding journey so far. It has not been an easy one and after receiving a late diagnosis of tongue tie and struggling with slow weight gain from birth, it became even more important to me to ensure that once Edie started weaning, she still continued to get enough of her daily recommended nutrients and vitamins. When I discovered the new Aptamil Organic 2 Follow On Milk, it was a no brainer that we would start introducing this into Edie’s daily routine alongside food. The Aptamil Organic 2 Follow On Milk contains Vitamins A, C & D as well as Iron and certified organic ingredients. Vitamin D supports the normal function of the immune system and Iron supports normal cognitive development.
Why we chose Aptamil Organic 2 Follow On Milk
Before becoming a parent, I never really used to take much notice into what ingredients were in things and whether or not something was organic. It has certainly become something that’s more of a priority to me now as it helps to provide reassurance to me that my children are getting great quality products. Aptamil Organic Follow On Baby Milk prides itself on being crafted with care and inspired by 40 years of research and has been certified by an independent organic certification body to ensure it meets the organic social and environmental standards in Europe.
How we transitioned to Aptamil Organic 2 Follow On Milk
Edie was around 10 months old when we switched her over to Aptamil Organic Follow On formula milk and she took to it really well without any issues right from the very first feed. We made the change gradually over a few days by just swapping out a feed at a time and this seemed to work really well and she completely drank it all every time. From a parents point of view, I especially love the packaging and the fact the scoop stores away neatly in the lid, and that there is even a built-in leveller for when you are measuring scoops. This definitely helps make life easier. The formula powder itself is also very fine and soft and dissolves quickly and easily when added to the hot water, leaving no lumps when mixed.
I’m really glad that I no longer have to compromise and can rest easy putting my trust into a brand knowing that Edie is getting great quality certified organic ingredients and a Follow On Milk Formula that is supported by both science and 40 years of breastmilk research. I will most definitely continue using this product and I would highly recommend it to any other parent considering a Follow On Milk.
