Food for special medical purpose. For the dietary management of preterm and low birthweight infants. This product must be used under medical supervision.
SMA® PRO Gold Prem 1 is a preterm and low birthweight formula which benefits from over 90 years experience in advancing baby nutrition and is nutritionally complete with Omega 3 & 6 LCPs. It provides higher levels of energy, protein, vitamins and minerals compared to typical infant milks, and is specially formulated to help support their immature body systems. SMA® PRO Gold Prem 1 is used in hospitals as a nutritionally complete whey dominant formula and is specially balanced for your baby’s needs if they have been born preterm or low birthweight.

Preterm is defined as infants born at or before 37 weeks of pregnancy. Infants who are born prematurely weigh much less than term infants, this is because a significant amount of the baby's weight gain occurs between 36 and 40 weeks of pregnancy.

Important notice

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 Gold Prem 1 is a special formula intended for the dietary management of preterm and low birthweight babies who are not solely fed breast milk. SMA® PRO Gold Prem 1 is not suitable for those who are allergic to cows' milk protein, lactose intolerant, or who suffer from galactosaemia or require a galactose free diet. Never leave your baby alone during feeding as there is a risk they might choke.

Important advice to mothers

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life. SMA® Nutrition fully supports this and continued breastfeeding, along with the introduction of complementary foods as advised by your healthcare professional.

 

 

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, as advised by your healthcare professional.
When introducing weaning foods, remember that they need to be suitable and safe, and fed appropriately to minimise any risk to your baby's health. The pages ahead and other subsequent communications we may have with you provide you with information on infant feeding and SMA® Nutrition products, including infant formula.

If you continue you will be accepting that SMA® Nutrition is supplying this information at your individual request and for educational purposes only.
