SMA® Organic First Infant Milk

New formula
SMA{®} Organic First Infant Milk
The first 1000 days of a baby’s life have a life-long impact on many aspects of future health.

The growth pattern of a breastfed baby is associated with improved health outcomes.1 Breastfed babies tend to grow more slowly than bottle-fed babies.2 Protein is one of the main drivers of growth and the quantity and quality of protein in breast milk is ideal to support appropriate growth.

SMA® Organic First Infant Milk is a certified organic, easy to digest,3 nutritionally complete infant milk.

SMA® Organic First Infant Milk is suitable for Halal.

Information for you to give to parents

Preparing your baby's feed – powder (800 g)

 

 While this product is made under strict hygienic conditions, it is not sterile. Failure to follow instructions on preparation and storage may make your baby ill.

1. Pull the safety seal and open the lid. The scoop is provided under the lid. Lift the tab, pull on the foil seal, carefully and safely remove the seal and dispose of it.

2. Wash hands well. Wash and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers’ instructions.

3. Boil 1 litre of fresh tap water. Allow boiled water to cool for no more than 30 minutes. Measure the required amount of water (see feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle, carefully – the water is hot. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.

4. Using only the scoop provided, add the correct number of scoops of powder (see feeding guide), levelling off each scoop with the back of a clean, dry knife. Store the scoop in suspension inside the can and replace lid.

5. Place the sterilised teat and cap on the bottle and shake well until powder is fully dissolved. Cool bottle under cold running water or in a bowl or jug of cold water until lukewarm, do not immerse the teat. Test temperature by shaking a few drops onto the inside of your wrist.

Information for you to give to parents

SMA® Organic First Infant Milk – 800 g

  • Do not add extra powder or water to make the feeds stronger or weaker and do not press powder into scoop. Using too much or too little powder can make your baby ill.
  • We recommend preparing each feed in individual bottles when required.
  • For hygienic reasons, discard unfinished feed in the bottle as soon as possible.
  • For older babies, made-up formulae can be added to food.
  • Do not alter or add to formulae unless medically directed.
  • Do not warm feeds in a microwave, hot spots may occur and cause scalding.
  • Remember, cows' milk should not be used as a drink during the first year.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The World Health Organisation (WHO) has recommended that pregnant women and new mothers be informed on the benefits and superiority of breastfeeding – in particular the fact that it provides the best nutrition and protection from illness for babies. Mothers should be given guidance on the preparation for, and maintenance of, lactation, with special emphasis on the importance of a well-balanced diet both during pregnancy and after delivery. Unnecessary introduction of partial bottle-feeding or other foods and drinks should be discouraged since it will have a negative effect on breastfeeding. Similarly, mothers should be warned of the difficulty of reversing a decision not to breastfeed. Before advising a mother to use an infant formula, she should be advised of the social and financial implications of her decision: for example, if a baby is exclusively bottle-fed, more than one can (400 g) per week will be needed, so the family circumstances and costs should be kept in mind. Mothers should be reminded that breast milk is not only the best, but also the most economical food for babies. If a decision to use an infant formula is taken, it is important to give instructions on correct preparation methods, emphasising that unboiled water, unsterilised bottles or incorrect dilution can all lead to illness.
