And now at least 66% of plastic in the lid and 95% of the plastic in the scoop is produced from sugar cane, which is a renewable plant-based resource. Our tins, lids and scoops are still all widely recycled – so simply throw in the recycling bin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The SMArt choice... I loved having the chance to change my little one on to this new milk range. I have always found SMA reliable and this milk did not disappoint. It was a lovely consistency, easy to mix and didn’t leave any yellow bits floating on the top (like other mills do). It was smooth and odourless. My little one didn’t have any issues changing from the current brand we were using. He loved every bottle and was satisfied by every feed! The only problem I have is the price. I understand it is a revolutionary new milk. It is an amazing concept... but it is on the more expensive side - even with the generous vouchers we received.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love it I have been exclusively breastfeeding my son for 6 months, and have gradually been introducing formula ever since. However we have tried a couple of different brands and not found one what agrees with my son or that he likes. I love this milk as it is lovely and smooth, unlike some ive tried always seem grainy. This also doesn't leave a greasy residue on the bottle. It smells and look appealing and doesn't foam which I like. My son has taken straight to it, and with me going back to work has made my life so much less stressful. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a good quality and reasonable formula milk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product I was a bit wary of changing my daughter's formula, even within the same brand. So I was maybe overly cautious. First impressions were it mixes really well and easily and my baby seemed to love it, mmm was heard quite often during a feed. We never had issues with the previous formula and my baby digested it well but I honestly feel this milk made an improvement where I didn't realise we had issues. She hasn't been looking for more milk after a bottle. She is a great sleeper and does sleep right through til morning but occasionally will awaken and cry her hungry cry, not with this formula, fills her better for bedtime bottle. Will definitely recommend to friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Well I was worried my daughter wouldn't want to use it when I first introduced it but she didn't even blink and indeed drank much more in one feeding than she ever did previously so I'd say on her part it's a definite success. I like the shape and the design of the tub it arrives in and generally how easy it is to open. The only thing I have to say about it is the powder itself seems abit rough in look and feel which doesn't really make much of a difference overall it's just something I've noted as different. All in all a very good product that my daughter loves and I have no problem giving to her because it seems to be made to a high quality

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Baby girl loved it First time ever - my daughter is breastfed but it's time to move on slowly to formula. These are my first impressions after trying the new SMA Advanced a few times. The formula mixes very well to a nice and smooth milk. My daughter took it straight away and drank most of it. (i am sure she enjoyed it but has not had all of it due to being used to smaller quantities of breastmilk) The formula seemed to keep her full for longer than breastmilk so that is great news for me! The only negative would be the price, it is a little more expensive than most of the formulas out there, but i suppose it promises to be closer to breastmilk, so you do get what you pay for presumably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product We had our one year old granddaughter for a her first sleepover last week and used the SMA follow on milk for her bedtime bottle. We dont have the tomee tippee pefect prep machine so we had to just use boliing water but the powder mixed in really well. Our granddaughter is guranteed to wake in the night for another bottle (her parents assured us) but we all got a full nights sleep, she didnt stir till morning. The SMA follow-on milk kept her satisfied the whole night. Her mum and dad have since said they will not go back to their old SMA as this one lets them have a decent nights sleep for the first time in over a year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised! My son (now 11 months) has always had issues with digesting formula milk. I even considered switching to lactose free and goat milk formula. I was hesitate in switching to another formula again and predicted he wouldn't adjust to it. I was wrong! Since he has started onto SMA Advanced, he has become alot more energetic and active, and seems generally happier than before. It has been about a month since i have switched to SMA advanced and i will be soon upgrading to level 3 of this formula. One gripe i do have about the formula is the price but i will still continue purchasing if it seems to be affecting my son postively.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't fault it Fabulous formula in a recyclable tin. It mixes well and isn't clumpy or overly bubbly; my daughter switched straight to it with no negative effects, unlike last time we switched. After reading the information available from SMA I had no reservations about switching her at all, this milk is one of the most advanced available and it shows when baby is using it. We are weaning at the moment and were struggling to move from 3 bottles to 2, but since moving to SMA Advanced she seems more satisfied with each feed and has only needed the third bottle once. I would confidently recommend this product to friends and have done

Important notice

Breast milk is best for babies and breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. SMA® ADVANCED 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. 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. 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.
