Our unique expertise
Based on over 40 years of research, our team of more than 400 scientists and experts has developed our special Aptamil Prematil diet, tailored to the special nutritional needs of premature babies.
Aptamil Prematil was specially developed for the dietary treatment of premature babies. Since these children have an increased need for energy, proteins, as well as some minerals and vitamins in comparison to mature babies, Aptamil Prematil has been developed according to current scientific recommendations and specifically tailored to these nutritional needs and supports optimal growth and natural development.
- Specially developed for the dietary treatment of premature babies. These children have an increased need for energy, proteins, as well as some minerals and vitamins compared to full-term infants.
- LCPs - long-chain, polyunsaturated fatty acids. They are especially important in the first months of life as they babies cannot produce sufficient amounts on their own in the first months of life
- Patented GOS/FOS * - A unique fibre blend developed by our research

Dosage and preparation
The dosage is based on medical advice depending on the weight of the child. The average intake is usually 150 - 170 ml/kg body weight per day. Depending on the age of the child and tolerability, the amount should be divided between 6 and 12 meals. Please only use the enclosed measuring spoon, which holds 5.6 g when full and levelled.
