Aptamil Pepti 2 is for the dietary management of cows’ milk protein allergy (CMPA). Suitable from 6 months, to complement a cows' milk free weaning diet.
Aptamil Pepti 2 is similar in composition to our standard follow on milk, apart from the protein which has been broken down (extensively hydrolysed) to make it less likely to cause an allergic reaction. It also includes lactose for improved taste, to help your baby enjoy each feed and support weight gain.
What is cows’ milk protein allergy?
CMPA is the most common food allergy in infants. Although most children eventually grow out of their milk allergy, its diagnosis and management can be a worrying time for parents. The good news is, with a prompt diagnosis by a Healthcare Professional, treatment and expert dietary advice, CMPA can be effectively managed and its impact reduced to a minimum. If you think your child has a cows' milk protein allergy, you should always get in contact with your Healthcare Professional for a correct diagnosis.
