SMA H.A. Infant Milk from Birth 800g

Breastfeeding provides the best nutrition for your baby. If you decide not to or combination feed, SMA H.A is a Hypo-Allergenic infant milk designed to reduce the risk of developing allergy to cows' milk proteins. SMA H.A. is nutritionally complete with Omega 3 & 6 LCPs.

Most infant milks contain long chains of cows' milk proteins. In SMA H.A. these proteins have been broken up into smaller pieces, which reduces the risk of your baby developing an allergic response. SMA H.A. should be used from the first formula feed onwards.

Important Feeding Information Do not add extra powder or water to make 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 and used in cooking. 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. Preparing your baby's feed Whilst 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. 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 water 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 handy built-in leveller in the can. 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 onto the inside of your wrist.

Important Notice

Breast milk is best for babies and breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. Infant milks should only be used on the
advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist, or other professionals responsible for
maternal and child care.

When bottle-feeding do not allow prolonged or frequent contact of milk feeds with teeth as this increases the risk of tooth decay.
Ask you healthcare professional or dentist for advice. Never leave your baby alone during feeding.

While every care has been taken to ensure this information is always as accurate as possible, food products are regularly
improved and nutrition content may occasionally change. As a result we recommend that you always read the label carefully
before using or consuming any products.
