SMA H.A.® Infant milk

SMA H.A.{®} Infant milk

To reduce the risk of developing allergy to cows’ milk proteins. Suitable from birth.

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

Babies with a family history of allergy are more prone to developing eczema when exposed to intact cows’ milk protein from their first formula feed.

SMA H.A. Infant Milk contains partially hydrolysed, 100% whey protein and is clinically proven to reduce the risk of eczema in the first year of life by over 50% in babies with a family history of allergy.1

 

IMPORTANT

SMA H.A. Infant Milk should not be used if a baby has already been diagnosed with allergy to cows’ milk proteins or is suspected of already having an allergy to cows’ milk proteins. For more information caregivers should contact their healthcare professional.

Preparing your baby’s feed – powder

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 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 in the can, 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 until lukewarm. Test temperature by shaking a few drops on to the inside of your wrist.

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.
