SMA Anti-Reflux From Birth is for when baby is bringing back their feeds. A nutritionally complete formula for the dietary management of babies with significant reflux (regurgitation/spitting up), when they are not being breastfed. It can be used as the sole source of nutrition from birth in place of your usual formula feed, and can be mixed with foods once weaning has begun. Reflux often occurs because a baby's digestive system is immature.
SMA PRO Anti-Reflux contains starch as thickener which helps the feed settle more easily in baby's tummy, and easy to digest 100% whey, partially hydrolysed protein. You may notice a change in baby's stool when changing to SMA PRO Anti-Reflux. This due to the different ingredients and is normal.
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.
For hygienic reasons, discard unfinished feed in the bottle as soon as possible.
For older babies, made-up formula can be added to food but not heated.
We recommend preparing each feed in individual bottles when required.
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.
Breast milk is best for babies and breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. This product must be used under medical supervision. SMA PRO Anti-Reflux is a special formula intended for the dietary management of bottle-fed babies when significant reflux (regurgitation) is a problem. It is suitable as the sole source of nutrition up to 6 months of age, and in conjunction with solid food up to 12 months of age. If the baby's reflux does not improve within 2 weeks of starting SMA PRO Anti-Reflux, or if the baby fails to thrive, the family doctor should be consulted. SMA PRO Anti-Reflux is not suitable for Halal or vegetarians or those who are allergic to cows' milk protein, lactose intolerant, 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. Always hold your baby while feeding. Do not leave baby unattended, as there is a risk they might choke.
