Peace of mind with SMA PRO Follow-on Milk

*Advertorial feature

Although I would have loved to have kept breastfeeding both my boys until they no longer needed me to, it didn’t happen for us for a variety of reasons. I wrote about my breastfeeding story with Toby here, and the moment I realised my time breastfeeding Gabe was coming to an end here. I am very grateful for the fact that follow on formula exists and that I was able to feed Toby and Gabe in a way that worked for us.

We started weaning both boys at six months and followed a combination of spoon feeding and babyled weaning. It took Toby a month or two to really get the hang of eating solids but after that he would eat pretty much anything I put in front of him. He would eat the same foods as us and I was happy that he was getting all the nutrients and vitamins that he needed.

Gabe was a different story though – he took to eating a bit more quickly than Toby had but it took a long time before he would eat the same food as the rest of the family. Because of this we relied a lot on baby food pouches, probably until after his first birthday. As his eating wasn’t great I was happy to use follow on formula and it gave me peace of mind that it complements the weaning diet and contains essential vitamins and minerals.

SMA® Nutrition has developed SMA®PRO Follow-on Milk which is supported by 50 years of protein research and is their most advanced follow-on formula yet. Here’s what they have to say about it:

SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk with NUTRI-STEPS® helps build a nutritional foundation for life:

    • Made with SMA® Nutrition’s unique protein technology
    • Fortified with iron to help support normal cognitive development. Also contains important minerals such as Zinc and Iodine.
    • Contains Vitamin D and Calcium to support normal growth and development of bone.
    • Contains Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids to support normal development and growth.

    The beneficial effect of essential fatty acids is obtained with a daily intake of 10g of Linoleic acid and 2 g of a-linolenic acid.

    • SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk contains GOS/FOS (*in powder formulation only; GOS/FOS=Galactooligosaccharides/Fructooligosaccharides)


    Both Toby and Gabe eat very well these days and I’m happy that they get everything they need from a varied diet and drinking cow’s milk. However, I’m pleased that follow on formula was available for us to use when we started weaning as I knew it contained vitamins and minerals to help compliment their weaning diets.

    SMA® Nutrition has just launched a Facebook page, called ‘SMA® Baby Club UK & Ireland’. There are regular posts to help parents – both mums and dads – navigate their first 1,000 days of parenthood, from conception until their baby turns 2.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE: Breast milk is best for babies and breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. SMA®PRO Follow-on Milk is for babies over 6 months, as part of a varied weaning diet. Not intended to replace breastfeeding.

  1. It’s so funny how they’re all so different isn’t it? Weaning both my girls was a really different experience. Definitely think it’s good to have an open mind – helps to make it far less stressful!

  2. I think it’s great that the SMA PRO Forumula is there for if / when you need it! I always worried that my two weren’t getting all the right nutrients when weaning (we did blw, so couldn’t tell how much they ate!), so this would be good for peace of mind xx
