What are the Benefits of SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk?

Advertorial Feature

When I went back to work a few months ago, I looked into buying a follow-on milk for my daughter. Up until this point she was exclusively breast-fed, so I wanted the best follow-on formula for her.

My mum suggested trying out SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk because she used it for us when we were small, so that’s what I did as they always say mum’s know best!

I still breast feed my daughter in the evenings before bed, she loves the comfort, then during the day she has her follow-on milk. I find this is a great balance with her mixed weaning diet.

I have found at this 6 months + stage that babies become so active. Learning to crawl, rolling over and even trying to walk.

Therefore it’s highly essential they are getting the right nutrients from a follow-on formula like SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk. I know I want my daughter to have the best start in life and build a nutritional foundation for life.

  • So what are the benefits of SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk?

  • It’s suitable for babies 6 months old and over and designed to complement their weaning diet and support their development and growth in these important early stages.
  • It’s fortified with iron to help support normal cognitive development and 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.
  • SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk contains GOS/FOS *in powder formulation only; GOS/FOS = Galactooligosaccharides/ Fructo-oligosaccharides
  • It is made using an exclusive protein process, made with SMA® Nutrition’s unique protein technology.

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.

The Importance Of ‘You Time’

Even with all the advances made by great minds, technology and the internet – family life hasn’t got much easier. In fact, it might be a little bit tougher these days thanks to the expectations placed on the shoulders of parents across the globe. All the little gadgets and apps we can use certainly help, but they don’t soften the blow much at all. Work as a parent is tough and that’s not all. Most parents are going to have some form of work outside of the work involved with being a parent. It’s tough work and its non stop – any parent can attest to that.

Slogging Away as a Working Mum

It’s been 8 months since I first went back to work after having baby girl. Don’t ask me where that time has gone. It’s flown by! Now I slog it out as a working mum 5 days a week. Our daily routine when I’m at work during the week starts very early 4:45am in fact, but on my days off we treasure a little lie in… well until 7am anyway!

On our days off we love to go down to our local park and play on the swings and have a run about. It’s gorgeous in the Summer with lots of different play areas plus picnic and walking areas.
