Why SMA Follow-on Milk?

Fortified with iron to help brain development

Iron is very important for growth and brain development. SMA Follow-on Milk is fortified with iron, which helps brain development.

Contains Calcium and Vitamin D for bone and teeth development

Vitamin D helps to keep bones and teeth healthy by helping the body absorb calcium from the foods babies eat. It’s very important for babies to have enough Vitamin D, because it is needed to support their rapid growth and development in their early years of life.

Omega 3 & 6 LCPs (Long Chain Polyunsaturates)

LCPs are important components of cell membranes and play a key role in the development of the brain, eye, and nervous system. Although LCPs can be made in the body, infants have a high demand for these nutrients and they can be difficult to obtain from a weaning diet. SMA Follow-on Milk contains Omega 3 & 6 LCPs to help ensure weaning babies aren't missing out on these important nutrients.

Preparing your baby’s feed - powders. Product details

Whilst SMA products are made under strict hygienic conditions, they are not sterile. Make sure you follow these instructions on preparation and storage, or you could make your baby ill.

Wash hands well. Sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers' instructions. After 6 months, if you are using a beaker it is not necessary to sterilise equipment, though you should ensure everything is fully cleaned.

Boil kettle filled with fresh tap water. Allow boiled water to cool for no more than 30 minutes before measuring the required amount of water (see feeding guide on can) into the sterilised bottle or beaker, carefully - the water is hot. Do not use artificially softened water or repeatedly boiled water.

Using the scoop provided in the can, add the correct number of scoops of powder (see feeding guide on can), levelling off each scoop with either the handy built-in leveller in the can (only available on some cans) or with the back of a clean dry knife. Replace plastic lid on can.

Place the sterilised teat and cap on the bottle or lid on the beaker and shake well. Cool bottle or beaker under cold running water until lukewarm. Test temperature by shaking a few drops onto the inside of your wrist.

If advance preparation is necessary, consult your healthcare professional.
