How to use

Preparation and Usage

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 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 until lukewarm. Test temperature by
shaking a few drops onto the inside of your wrist.

Hazards and Cautions

Important notice

Breast milk is beast for babies and breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. This product must be used under medical supervision.

SMA LF® is a lactose-free milk-based formula for the dietary management of babies and young children who are intolerant to lactose or sucrose, or who are suffering from symptoms such as diarrhoea, tummy ache or wind caused by temporary lactose intolerance. It is suitable as the sole source of nutrition up to 6 months of age, and in conjunction with solid food up to 18 months of age. SMA LF is not suitable for those who are allergic to cows' milk protein, or who suffer from galactosaemia or require a galactose free diet.

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.II
