Q:

Due to health reasons, my sister is unable to feed her baby. Can she give Aptamil formula milk to a 3 weeks old? Please share experiences.



Consult a lactation specialist.

My neighbour went through the same issue. Her doctor suggested her to give Aptamil fm as its components are closest to mother's milk and has prebiotics in it that builds a healthy gut in babies and boosts their immunity too.
However, she must consult her paediatric first before introducing it to the baby.

Yes. Even my sil wasn't able to express. Our pediatrician suggested Aptamil, it is close to breastmilk and boost immunity

Nothing is best of mother's milk. Mother's milk is gold for baby. But if any issues, try Aptamil. Aptamil is good, because it is rich of all necessary nutrition and prebiotics. Prebiotics are good for healty gut and good immunity of child. So with the consultations of your pediatrician, you can go with them.

If she’s facing problem with breastfeeding the baby then definitely she can try Aptamil formula milk after consulting a paediatrician. This is something I’ve tried myself so I am suggesting the same it is also the closest substitute to breast milk so it is the best for babies
