Which is the best milk for my baby? Try our formula finder tool to find out. It can sometimes be difficult to know which baby milk is best. Many babies experience some kind of feeding issue before the age of 6 months. This is because their little digestive systems are still developing even after they are born.

If you are concerned your baby might have a feeding issue try our feeding issue symptom checker. If you are unsure which is the right milk for your baby try our formula finder tool. This will guide you through a series of questions to get you to the right milk for your baby. We have produced a range of formulations expertly created with nature in mind to support babies’ unique nutritional needs.

Important notice

We believe that breastfeeding is the ideal nutritional start for babies and we fully support the World Health Organization’s recommendation of exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life followed by the introduction of adequate nutritious complementary foods along with continued breastfeeding up to two years of age. We also recognise that breastfeeding is not always an option for parents. We recommend that you speak to your healthcare professional about how to feed your baby and seek advice on when to introduce complementary feeding. If you choose not to breastfeed, please remember that such a decision can be difficult to reverse and has social and financial implications. Introducing partial bottle-feeding will reduce the supply of breast milk. 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® Wysoy® milk-free formula is intended to meet the nutritional needs of babies and children who are intolerant to cows’ milk protein, lactose or sucrose.
