Although breastfeeding is best, if you decide to bottle or combination feed then this baby milk formula could be the right one for you. It's been especially developed for its anti-reflux properties, managing babies who regurgitate a significant amount of normal baby milk. The formula thickens in the baby's tummy, not in the bottle, making it easy to drink. It's nutritionally complete and can be used as sole source of nutrition from birth.
Breast milk is best for babies and breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. This product must be used under medical supervision. SMA Staydown 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 Staydown, or if the baby fails to thrive, the family doctor should be consulted.
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 as there is a risk they might choke.
