The first 1,000 days of a baby’s life have a life-long impact on many aspects of future health.

 

Protein is vitally important for a baby’s growth. Therefore, if a baby is intolerant to cows’ milk, an alternative must be found.

The BDA and FSAI state that soya infant milk may be used for babies from 6 months with cows’ milk protein allergy/lactose intolerance when soya is being used /considered for the weaning diet. They also acknowledge it may be used in babies younger than 6 months who refuse extensively hydrolysed milk, vegan mothers, and infants with galactosaemia.1,2

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. SMA® Wysoy® milk‑free formula is intended to meet the nutritional needs of babies and children who are intolerant to cows’ milk protein, lactose or sucrose. Soya infant formulae are not recommended for preterm babies or those with kidney problems, where medical guidance should always be sought.
