SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk, suitable from 6+ months

Did you know that by 6 months your baby's iron stores start to deplete?

When your baby is born, about 75% of your little one's iron is in their blood and about 25% is stored. As your baby grows the iron in this store is used up. From 6 months onward, the requirement of iron for babies is higher so they need iron as part of their weaning diet.

SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk, suitable from 6 months, is enriched with iron to help support normal cognitive development.

Inspired by the specific nutritional needs of babies, SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk is our most advanced follow-on formula yet.

Tips for a great first birthday party!

Can you believe your little one is nearly 1? They are growing at such a rate, it probably feels that they are moving at 100 miles per hour.

With your little one's first birthday comes a lot more firsts. This year, you can look forward to first words, first steps and those first signs of independence.

We want to help you celebrate this special 'first'. It's a great opportunity to look back on how far you and your little one have come with your family and friends, but don't worry about throwing a birthday extravaganza with an endless guest list.

    Tips for throwing a first birthday party

  • Work around nap times, we don't want your baby to miss the fun!
  • Don't worry about party bags - they aren't necessary at this age - they'll have enough fun running around on the day!
  • Provide a variety of toys and games for babies and children of different ages and for invited siblings.
  • Don't forget the adults, tea, coffee and perhaps some bubbles.
  • Spend your preparation time on games and activities rather than decorations, the less you put up - the less they will pull down.
  • Keep food simple and easy to pick up with small fingers.
  • Make sure you have a willing volunteer to help take photos or film the day, check out the nifty video below for a fun way to capture the day.

We'd love to see your photos, please share and tag #SMABaby1stBirthday

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The best way to feed a baby is to breastfeed, as breast milk provides the ideal balanced diet and protection against illness for your baby and also many non-nutritional benefits for both baby and mother. We recommend that you speak to your healthcare professional when deciding on your choice of feeding your baby. Professional guidance should also be sought on the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. If you do choose to breastfeed, it's important to eat a healthy, balanced diet. Infant formula is intended to replace breast milk when mothers choose not to breastfeed or if for some reason they are unable to do so. A decision not to breastfeed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, will reduce the supply of breast milk. If for any reason you choose not to breastfeed, do remember that such a decision can be difficult to reverse. Using infant formula also has social and financial implications which must be considered. Infant formula should always be prepared, used and stored as instructed on the label, in order to avoid risks to a baby's health. SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk is only suitable for babies over 6 months as part of a mixed diet. It should not be used as a substitute for breast milk during the first 6 months. The decision to start weaning or to use this product before 6 months, should be made only on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist, based on baby's individual needs. The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding during the first 6 months of life and continued breastfeeding for as long as possible. SMA® PRO Toddler Milk is suitable for young children from 1-3 years, as part of a healthy balanced diet and it is not a breast milk substitute.
