Important advice to mothers

The best way to feed a baby is to breastfeed, as breast milk provides the ideal balanced diet and protection against illness for your baby and also many non-nutritional benefits for both baby and mother. We recommend that you speak to your healthcare professional when deciding on your choice of feeding your baby. Professional guidance should also be sought on the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. If you do choose to breastfeed, it's important to eat a healthy, balanced diet.

Infant formula is intended to replace breast milk when mothers choose not to breastfeed or if for some reason they are unable to do so. A decision not to breastfeed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, will reduce the supply of breast milk.

If for any reason you choose not to breastfeed, do remember that such a decision can be difficult to reverse. Using infant formula also has social and financial implications which must be considered. Infant formula should always be prepared, used and stored as instructed on the label, in order to avoid risks to a baby's health.

When introducing weaning foods, remember that they need to be suitable and safe, and fed appropriately to minimise any risk to your baby's health.

Important advice to mothers

Breast milk is best for babies and breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. SMA Follow-on Milk is only suitable for babies over 6 months as part of a mixed diet. It should not be used as a substitute for breast milk during the first 6 months. The decision to start weaning or to use this product before 6 months, should be made only on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist, based on babies individual needs.

Important advice to mothers

SMA Toddler Milk is suitable for young children 1-3 years and it is not a breast milk subtitute. Breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. Do not allow prolonged or frequent contact of milk with your toddlers teeth, as this increases the risk of tooth decay. Ask your health care professional or dentist for advice.

Infant formula

In the UK and ROI the Government recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months (26 weeks) of life. Some mothers may choose to combination feed with breast milk and infant formula, whilst others may exclusively bottle-feed. Infant formula is the only recommended alternative for the first 6 months.

Ingredients of infant formula

Infant formula is specially formulated to support the adequate growth of infants under 6 months of age, when infants are not breastfed. Most formulae are based on modified skimmed cows' milk and have been designed to match, as closely as possible, the composition of breast milk.

Infant formula as opposed to cows' milk

The Department of Health recommends that cows' milk should not be introduced as a drink until 12 months of age, as it contains very little iron, vitamins C & D and is high in sodium, protein and saturated fat. Infant formula is the only recommended alternative to breast milk for babies under the age of 6 months whose mothers are unable to, or choose not to breastfeed. After 6 months of age Follow-on Milk is recommended to accompany the weaning diet.

Attention

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

Breastfeeding is best for babies. Good maternal nutrition is important for the preparation and maintenance of breastfeeding. Introducing partial bottle-feeding may have a negative effect on breastfeeding and reversing a decision not to breastfeed is difficult. You should always seek the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist on the need for and proper method of use of infant milks and on all matters of infant feeding. Social and financial implications should be considered when selecting a method of infant feeding. Infant milk should always be prepared and used as directed. Inappropriate foods or feeding methods, or improper use of infant formula, may present a health hazard.
