Introducing partial bottle feeding using infant milk formula could negatively affect breastfeeding, and reversing a decision not to breastfeed is difficult. Professional advice should be followed. Infant milk formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use of infant milk formula may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications should be considered when selecting a method of infant feeding.

As a manufacturer of infant milk formula, Aspen strives to uphold the International Code of Marketing of Breast Milk Substitutes, as set-out by the World Health Organisation. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for up to six months. All information supplied in terms of this website is upon individual request and for informational or educational purposes.
