We have been trying out the new Aptamil Sensavia Follow On Milk with broken down protein and have been asked to give an honest review of how we have found the transition from the old formulation to the new one.
Isabelle is 9 months old now and growing more and more every single day, with that in mind I try to make sure that she is getting all of the nutrients that she needs. The new Aptamil Sensavia Follow On Milk contains a blend of ingredients tailored to complement a baby's varied and balanced weaning diet from 6-12 months, so it is perfect for Isabelle's age group.
As a trusted well known brand, we started using Aptamil Follow On Milk three years ago with Alyssia, it worked really well for us and so it was a no-brainer when it came to choosing a Follow On Milk for Isabelle.
The transition from the old formulation to the Aptamil Sensavia Follow On Milk was completely seamless, Isabelle has been having 8oz bottles and finishes every bottle feed like a pro. She has around 3 bottle feeds a day at 9 months old which we make up using the prep machine, you can also make up the Aptamil Sensavia Follow On Milk by boiling a kettle and following the instructions on the back of the product.
What makes Aptamil Sensavia Follow On Milk unique?
I find that the most unique part of the new Aptamil Sensavia Follow On Milk formulation is that is it based on partially hydrolysed milk where the milk proteins are broken into smaller pieces, something that Isabelle seems to be enjoying and taking to really well.
Aptamil Sensavia Follow On Milk contains:
- Essential Fatty Acids (ALA & LA) for normal growth and development. Benefit
obtained from a daily intake of 2g ALA and 10g LA.
- GOS/FOS (9:1)- a blend of Galacto- and Fructo-oligosaccharides
And it also contains:
- Vitamin D which contributes to the normal function of the immune system
- Iron to support normal cognitive development
- Calcium needed for normal growth and development of bone
The Aptamil Sensavia Follow On Milk is designed to complement a varied and balanced weaning diet for babies aged 6-12 months.
Fun Fact: Did you know?
The new Aptamil Sensavia Follow On Milk has been developed by a passionate team of over 500 scientists and experts (amazing!) who are constantly searching for the best formulations that Nutricia's research has to offer, inspired by more than 40 years of breastmilk research and so I felt confident that this was the right product to introduce to my daughter, Isabelle.
First impressions of the Aptamil Sensavia Follow On Milk
At first I was a little bit sceptical about changing to the new Aptamil Sensavia Follow On Milk as I was unsure how she would react and was worried it would interfere with her sleep pattern but as I said above, the transition has been super easy and if anything, Isabelle is drinking her baby milk better than ever before and still sleeping really well. The only difference I have noticed is that the milk slightly separates when being prepared but I am aware that this is totally normal and just needs a shake.
I feel confident that she is getting the nutrients that she needs in order to grow and develop well and as a mum who has used Aptamil Follow On Milk with both babies and has had no issues, I'd definitely recommend it to parents who are bottle feeding their babies between 6 and 12 months.
I love the new packaging, it's a gorgeous blush pink and is so well designed. It has a clip to lock shut the tub, keeping it safe for longer. I feel like it's much more secure and great for if you need to take the tub out with you ensuring that there will be no spillages. Overall, I'm really glad that we changed to Aptamil Sensavia Follow On Milk and I will continue to use this product with Isabelle until she is 12 months old.
