SMA® Nutrition products
for babies 6-12 months
Our Follow-on milks are tailored for babies from 6 months onwards as part of a varied weaning diet. At 6 months your baby's development progresses quickly and their need for iron increases. Our Follow-on Milks are enriched with iron to help support normal cognitive development in baby’s brain.
SMA® ADVANCED Follow-on Milk is the 1st follow-on formula in the UK and Ireland to contain 2’FL and LNnT. It also contains Zinc and Vitamins A, C & D to help support the normal function of baby’s immune system and is our most advanced Follow-on milk yet.
SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk contains a blend of vitamins, including A, C & D to help support the normal function of baby’s immune system, and is enriched with Omega 3 & 6† and iodine to help support normal growth. SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk now also contains 2’FL which is structurally identical to the most abundant oligosaccharide found in breast milk.
LITTLE STEPS® Follow-on Milk contains calcium and vitamin D for the normal growth and development of bones. Vitamin D also contributes to the normal function of the immune system in children.

We believe that breastfeeding is the ideal nutritional start for babies and we fully support the World Health Organization’s recommendation of exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life followed by the introduction of adequate nutritious complementary foods along with continued breastfeeding up to two years of age. We also recognise that breastfeeding is not always an option for parents. We recommend that you speak to your healthcare professional about how to feed your baby and seek advice on when to introduce complementary feeding. If you choose not to breastfeed, please remember that such a decision can be difficult to reverse and has social and financial implications. Introducing partial bottle-feeding will reduce the supply of breast milk. SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk, SMA® ADVANCED Follow-on Milk and LITTLE STEPS® Follow-on Milk are only suitable for babies over 6 months as part of a mixed diet. They 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 baby’s individual needs.
