What is SMA Anti-Reflux From Birth?

SMA Anti-Reflux From Birth is a formula that is designed to be used for babies to give them the nutrients that they need. It is suitable as a replacement for regular formula feeds and can be used in normal foods once your baby has begun weaning. SMA Anti-Reflux contains a mixture of starch and 100% whey, with partially hydrolysed protein, which works to reduce reflux. This formula may cause a change in your baby’s stools but this is normal.

 

What causes acid reflux in babies?

The exact cause of acid reflux in babies is unknown, but it is believed that several potential factors can cause it. Babies have an immature immune system so acid reflux is more likely to occur. Other causes include the baby’s diet, overfeeding and in rarer cases, gastroparesis (when the stomach delays emptying).

 

Who is this SMA Formula suitable for?

SMA Anti-Reflux is suitable for babies aged from birth up until 12 months of age. Babies who are not suffering from acid reflux should not have this formula. It is recommended that this formula is only used under medical supervision. Do not use if your baby is allergic to cow’s milk, is lactose intolerant, or suffers from galactosaemia.

 

How should SMA Anti-Reflux From Birth be used?

You must prepare the formula properly as it is not sterile. There are six steps to preparing the formula for use:

  1. The first time you open the formula, carefully remove the seal and dispose of it
  2. Wash your hands and ensure that all utensils are sterilised as appropriate
  3. Boil a litre of water and allow it to cool for up to 30 minutes. Measure the recommended amount into a sterilised bottle
  4. Put the cap on the bottle and run it under cold water until it is lukewarm
  5. Place the correct number of scoops of powder using the scoop provided. Level each scoop off with a clean, dry knife. Replace the scoop in the tub after using
  6. Shake the bottle well until the formula has dissolved. Make sure that the formula is lukewarm
