The science bit

SMA® ADVANCED Follow-on Milk is different because it contains unique carbohydrates known as human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs)* 2’FL and LNnT which are structurally identical to the most abundant HMOs found in breast milk. It also contains zinc and vitamins A, C and D to help support the normal function of your baby’s immune system and iron, which contributes to normal cognitive development.

*HMOs: structurally identical Human Milk Oligosaccharides, not sourced from breast milk.

How much milk is enough?

It’s hard to answer this question as all babies are different. As a guide, from 6 months to 1 year, if your baby is no longer breastfeeding, they should have 500-600ml of SMA® ADVANCED Follow-on Milk per day, either as a drink, on cereal or mixed with food.

Important notice: Breast milk is best for babies and breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. SMA® ADVANCED Follow-on Milk is only suitable for babies over 6 months as part of a mixed diet. It 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. When bottle-feeding, do not allow prolonged or frequent contact of milk feeds with teeth as this increases the risk of tooth decay. Ask your healthcare professional or dentist for advice. Never leave your baby alone during feeding as there is a risk they might choke.
