    Enfamil®Premature 24 Cal/fl oz

    Milk-based infant formula with 24 Calories/fl oz for premature or low birth weight infants who are not being breastfed

    Indication

    Enfamil Premature 24 Cal/fl oz is a milk-based infant formula specifically formulated to meet the unique nutritional needs of rapidly growing premature or low birth weight infants who do not receive human milk.* The Enfamil Premature Nutrition portfolio is the only premature infant formula line designed to meet the latest Global Expert Recommendations for all labeled nutrients. Protein is a major driver of lean mass growth and neuro-cognitive outcomes, and Enfamil Premature Nutrition supports these protein needs.

    Additional Usage Guidelines

    When more than 12 fl oz (355 mL) of 24 Calories/fl oz product is used per day, which may occur in larger infants weighing over 2500 g (5.5 lbs) consuming only Enfamil Premature, intake of some nutrients (eg, fat soluble vitamins) may be excessive. In such circumstances, it should be used only at the direction and under the supervision of a doctor. Enfamil® NeuroPro EnfaCare® may be a product to consider in such circumstances.

    *Increased caloric density, protein and some vitamins and minerals compared to standard term formula to help support weight and growth in babies born prematurely.

    In a multi-center study, 64% of preterm infants had low vitamin Dconcentrations at birth6

    Meets the 2014 Global Expert Recommendations for all labeled nutrients, including vitamin D1

    • Calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D within the ranges recommended by experts to help support bone mineralization and growth1:
      • Calcium:phosphorus ratio = 1.83:1
    • DHA at 0.34% of total fatty acids, similar to the worldwide breast milk average7, to help support brain and eye development and to help support blood DHA concentration8

    Additional product features:

    • Kosher, Halal

    *Whey-to-casein ratio 3-5 days after lactation begins
    †Serum 25 (OH) D concentrations <50 nmol/L at birth.
    ‡Average amount of DHA in worldwide breast milk is 0.32% ± 0.22% (mean ± standard deviation of total fatty acids) based on an analysis of 65 studies of 2,474 women.7
