Have you started weaning? If so, you may want to try LITTLE STEPS® Follow-on Milk by SMA – a great complement to the weaning diet

When your little one reaches 6 months, it’s such an exciting time. Every day your baby is growing, learning and doing new things – including weaning. And LITTLE STEPS® Follow-on Milk can help support your baby’s growth and development as you embark on that journey.

Why LITTLE STEPS® Follow-on Milk?

LITTLE STEPS® is designed for babies from 6 months onwards to complement the weaning diet. The milk is enriched with iron to help support cognitive development. It also contains calcium and vitamin D for the growth and development of bones – plus vitamin D helps to contribute to the function of the immune system in children*.

Baby

Ready to try it?

All babies are different but, if your baby is formula-fed, try to ensure that, from 6 months to 1 year, they have 500-600ml of milk a day, either as a drink, on cereals or mixed with food.

The milk is available in an 800g powder can with a scoop provided under the can’s lid. There are approximately 177 scoops per can. So, if you mix 1 scoop of powder (4.5g) to 30ml of water, each can will give you around 29 x 200ml servings.

Step 5

Place the lid on the beaker, or the teat on the bottle, and shake well until the powder is fully dissolved. Cool the beaker/bottle under cold running water, or in a bowl or jug of cold water, until lukewarm (do not immerse the lid/teat). Test the temperature of the milk by shaking a few drops onto the inside of your wrist before giving it to your little one.
