An important message from Express Chemist

In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.

Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. With a depleted team we are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries. Unfortunately it is currently taking longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow up to 5 working days for shipment.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Keep well and stay safe.

Directions for Use:
Wash hands and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers instructions. Boil freshly run water. Leave kettle to cool for 30 minutes. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.

Measure the required amount of water (refer to feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle. Do not add powder to boiling water due to risk of scalding. Always use the scoop provided. Level off the powder with the back of a clean knife. Do not press/heap the powder.

Add one scoop of Cow and Gate Pepti-junior to every 30ml (1 fl oz) of boiled cooled water. Add the correct number of scoops to the water. Adding too many or too few scoops can be harmful.

Replace seal on bottle. Shake well (for 10 seconds) to dissolve powder. Remove seal, replace with a sterilised teat. Cool under running tap. Check temperature of feed. Feed immediately.

Older Infants and Children: From the start of weaning and beyond, Cow and Gate Pepti-junior may be used to replace cows milk in drinks or cooked dishes.

Aptamil Pepti-junior should only be used under medical supervision, after full consideration of the feeding options available including breastfeeding. Pepti-junior is suitable for use as the sole source of nutrition for infants, and as a principle source of nourishment with other foods for children. Not suitable for parenteral use. Good dental hygiene is important for infants and children as prolonged or frequent contact of drinks and feeds with teeth increases the risk of tooth decay. Cow and Gate Pepti-junior is a special dietary food and therefore the taste, smell and appearance will differ from a standard infant formula.
Never leave your baby alone during feeding. Take care when removing the the ring pull lid. Use feeds within 1 hour, discard unfinished feeds. If necessary cooled, boiled water should be offered between feeds. Do not heat in the microwave. Hot spots may occur and cause scalding. Replace plastic lid after use and store in a cool, dry place. Do not refrigerate. Use within 4 weeks of opening.
