Milks for Feeding Issues
SCIENCE INSPIRED BY NATURE
Many babies experience minor but common everyday feeding problems. Our expert team at SMA® Nutrition is dedicated to understanding the unique nutritional needs of babies with different feeding issues and to applying these learnings to our own products.
We have been leading research in baby nutrition for over 100 years and have produced a range of milks which are nutritionally complete and specifically designed for babies and young children with different feeding issues.
SPECIALIST MILK RANGE
FOR FEEDING ISSUES
Easy to Digest Infant Milk
SMA® Comfort is an easy to digest nutritionally complete infant milk with Omega 3 & 6 LCPs that can be used to introduce infant formula to your baby.
SMA® Extra Hungry
Reflux often occurs because a baby’s digestive system is immature. SMA® Anti-Reflux is nutritionally complete and contains a unique combination of starch and 100% whey, partially hydrolysed protein for the dietary management of reflux and regurgitation. Food for special medical purposes. This formula should be used under medical supervision.
SMA High Energy®
Babies and young children are all different and sometimes they don’t grow as expected (faltering growth). SMA High Energy® is a nutrient dense ready to feed formula for the dietary management of infants and young children aged 0-18 months with medically identified high energy needs. This formula must be used under medical supervision. Food for special medical purpose.
OUR FORMULAS HAVE BEEN UPDATED
We have recently updated SMA® Anti-Reflux in line with the UK and EU legislation. There are no recipe changes for SMA® Comfort Easy to Digest Infant Milk and SMA® Extra Hungry Infant Milk. SMA High Energy® has already been updated earlier in 2019, so there are no further changes to this product.
We know any change big or small even when for the better, can cause concern when it comes to your little human. Baby milk is one of the most heavily regulated and tested food products in the world, and we can assure you that the reformulated milks are safe for babies. For more information please visit our FAQs or contact the SMA Careline® who will be happy to chat about the updated formulas.
Breast milk is best for babies and breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. Infant milks are suitable from birth when babies are not breastfed and should only be used on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist, or other professionals responsible for maternal and child care. The following products must be used under medical supervision. SMA® Anti-Reflux is a special formula intended for the dietary management of bottle-fed babies when significant reflux (regurgitation) is a problem. It is suitable as the sole source of nutrition up to 6 months of age, and in conjunction with solid food up to 12 months of age. If the baby’s reflux does not improve within 2 weeks of starting SMA® Anti-Reflux, or if the baby fails to thrive, the family doctor should be consulted. SMA High Energy® is a milk based formula for the dietary management of babies and young children with medically determined high energy requirements as identified by a healthcare professional. It is suitable as the sole source of nutrition up to 6 months of age, and in conjunction with solid food up to 18 months of age. SMA High Energy® is not intended for use with preterm babies, for whom fortified breast milk or a low birthweight formula such as SMA Gold Prem® 1 is more appropriate.
