SMA® Comfort

SMA{®} Comfort

Contains a partially hydrolysed, 100% whey protein which is easier to digest.1 Suitable from birth.

The first 1000 days of a baby’s life have a life-long impact on many aspects of future health.

Up to 55% of babies experience tummy troubles in the first few weeks and months of life. This is thought to be caused by an immature gut.2 Although this rarely affects growth, it can be distressing for parents and baby.

SMA Comfort is the only comfort milk without a thickener which means that there is no need to use a fast-flowing teat.

SMA Comfort is halal-approved and suitable for vegetarians.

Preparing your baby’s feed

Whilst SMA® Nutrition powdered products are made under strict hygienic conditions, they are not sterile. Failure to follow instructions on preparation and storage may make your baby ill.

1. Wash hands well. Sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers’ instructions.

2. Boil 1 litre of fresh tap water. Allow boiled water to cool for no more than 30 minutes. Measure the required amount of water (see feeding guide) into a sterilised bottle, carefully – the water is hot. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water.

3. Using the scoop provided, add the correct number of scoops of powder (see feeding guide), levelling off each scoop with the back of a clean dry knife. Replace plastic lid on can.

4. Place the sterilised teat and cap on the bottle and shake well. Cool bottle under cold running water or in a bowl or jug of cold water until lukewarm. Test temperature by shaking a few drops on to the inside of your wrist.

SMA Comfort powder – 800 g can

 

Do not add extra powder or water to make the feeds stronger or weaker and do not press powder into scoop. Using too much or too little powder can make your baby ill.

 

We recommend preparing each feed in individual bottles when required.

 

Throw away feeds that have not been used within 2 hours.

 

For older babies, made-up milk can be added to food.

 

Never add any food to the milk in your baby's bottle.

 

Do not warm feeds in a microwave – hot spots may occur and cause scalding.

 

Remember, cows' milk should not be used as a drink during the first year.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Breast milk is best for babies and breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. Good maternal nutrition is important for the preparation and maintenance of breastfeeding. Introducing partial bottle-feeding may have a negative effect on breastfeeding and reversing a decision not to breastfeed is difficult. Caregivers should always seek the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist on the need for and proper method of use of infant milks and on all matters of infant feeding. Social and financial implications should be considered when selecting a method of infant feeding. Infant milk should always be prepared and used as directed. Inappropriate foods or feeding methods, or improper use of infant formula, may present a health hazard.
