The first 1,000 days of a baby’s life have a life-long impact on many aspects of future health.

Research suggests that breastfed babies have fewer infections and may have a stronger immune system,15 which in part may be due to the presence of human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs).16,17

The growth pattern of a breastfed baby is associated with improved health outcomes.18–20 Breastfed babies tend to grow more slowly than bottle-fed babies.18–20 Protein is one of the main drivers of growth, and the quantity and quality of protein in breast milk are ideal to support appropriate growth.

Rapid postnatal weight gain can result from a high intake of growth-enhancing nutrients, such as protein, in the infant diet. Evidence from the Childhood Obesity Project study23, a large independent randomised controlled trial, suggests that higher protein intakes increase plasma and tissue levels of insulin-releasing amino acids, and of insulin and insulin-like growth factor 1, thereby increasing weight gain and adipogenic activity.23–25

How to open and prepare your baby's feed – powder (800 g)

While this product is made under strict hygienic conditions, it is not sterile. Failure to follow instructions on preparation and storage may make your baby ill.

Open

1. Pull the safety seal and open the lid. The scoop is provided under the lid. Lift the tab, pull on the foil seal, carefully and safely remove the seal and dispose of it.

Wash

2. Wash hands well. Wash and sterilise all utensils according to manufacturers’ instructions.

Boil

3. 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.

Scoop

Information for you to give to parents

SMA® ADVANCED First Infant Milk - 800g

 

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.

 

For hygienic reasons, discard unfinished feed in the bottle as soon as possible.

 

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

 

Do not alter or add to formulae unless medically directed.

 

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.

*HMOs: structurally identical human milk oligosaccharides, not sourced from breast milk.

Important Notice:

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has recommended that pregnant women and new mothers be informed on the benefits and superiority of breastfeeding – in particular, the fact that it provides the best nutrition and protection from illness for babies. Mothers should be given guidance on the preparation for, and maintenance of, lactation, with special emphasis on the importance of a well-balanced diet both during pregnancy and after delivery. The unnecessary introduction of partial bottle-feeding or other foods and drinks should be discouraged since it will have a negative effect on breastfeeding. Similarly, mothers should be warned of the difficulty of reversing a decision not to breastfeed. Before advising a mother to use infant formula, she should be advised of the social and financial implications of her decision: for example, if a baby is exclusively bottle-fed, more than one can (400 g) per week will be needed, so the family circumstances and costs should be kept in mind. Mothers should be reminded that breast milk is not only the best but also the most economical food for babies. If a decision to use an infant formula is taken, it is important to give instructions on correct preparation methods, emphasizing that unboiled water, unsterilized bottles or incorrect dilution can all lead to illness.
