Noticed it has changed packaging and has a shield on the front with some new ingredient.

Has it changed or is it the same? Anyone have any experience??

I'm pretty sure its just the same as they mentioned that their packaging would be changing soon but didn't say anything about the ingredients.....

They have put immunofortis on the front but I think fortis is prob just latin for fortification or something so its just saying that its got stuff to fortify the immune system - I wouldn't worry. I've carried on with it and no probs

as far as i'm aware its just the dd3 is on aptamil and there doesnt seem to be any difference.

As far as I know its still the same, our Sainsbury's is still selling the old packaging so we've got both as Asda has the new one. It threw me too - why can't they leave well alone .

There has just been some legal judgment about the way they are allowed to market the milk with regards to health claims etc so they have had to change the packaging.

oh i see so it wasn't because they are charging too much for it and had money to burn - fair enough- didn't they claim it was better than other formula or something?

Can't remember exactly, it was something to do with unsubstantiated claims and also affected other brands.

the "immunofortis" thing, so far as I can tell, is just an impressive sounding made-up name which alludes to the fact that Aptamil has prebiotics in it, which supposedly help create the right conditions in the digestive system for good bacteria to grow.
