Enfamil NeuroPro Gentlease®

Milk-based infant formula that has partially broken down proteins for the first 12 months.

Last Updated: Wednesday, April 11, 2018 - 00:15

Description/Indication

Enfamil NeuroPro Gentlease is a 20 Cal/fl oz, milk-based infant formula designed to reduce fussiness, gas and crying1. It has an easy-to-digest gentle protein blend of MFGM and partially hydrolyzed protein. Enfamil NeuroPro Gentlease has a fat-protein blend of MFGM and DHA previously found only in breast milk*. Emerging evidence from a recent clinical study showed MFGM in formula supports cognitive development similar to breast milk.

Long-Term Usage: Enfamil NeuroPro Gentlease is designed to provide the sole source of nutrition for infants up to age 6 months and provide a major source of nutrition for the remainder of the first year.

Product Features:

  • Designed to have an easy-to-digest gentle protein blend of MFGM and partially hydrolyzed protein
  • Made with ingredients clinically shown to reduce fussiness, gas and crying in 24 hours1
  • Infant formula that has MFGM and DHA is clinically shown to be a safe and well-tolerated source of nutrition2
  • DHA at the clinically proven amount of 0.32% of total fatty acids, the same amount as the worldwide breast milk average3,§, and double the amount found in the leading competitor’s product||:
    • Clinically proven to support mental, visual and immune system development
    • Clinically shown to improve long-term cognitive outcomes through 5 years of age4,‡
    • Shown to improve respiratory health through the first 3 years of life when infants were fed through 12 months5,‡
  • Inositol at the average amount found in breast milk
  • Non-GMO#
  • Kosher

* In amounts supported by clinical research.

† As measured by Bayley-III cognitive score at 12 months in a different formula with MFGM added as an ingredient.

‡ Studies compared infants fed Enfamil® that had DHA and ARA vs. discontinued Enfamil without DHA and ARA; studied before the addition of prebiotics.

§ 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 women3.

|| Enfamil NeuroPro Gentlease has not been shown superior to the leading competitor in supporting mental,visual and immune system development in infants. The level of DHA in Similac Pro-Advance is ~0.15%
of total fatty acids.

¶ The global average total inositol level in mature breast milk over the course of lactation is 22 mg/100 kcal6.

      The baby’s health depends on carefully following the instructions below. Use only as directed by a medical professional. Proper hygiene, preparation, dilution, use and storage are important when preparing infant formula. Powdered infant formulas are not sterile and should NOT be fed to premature infants or infants who might have immune problems unless directed and supervised by a doctor. Discuss with parents which formula is appropriate for the baby.

      Discuss with parents whether they need to use cooled, boiled water for mixing and whether they need to boil clean utensils, bottles and nipples in water before use.

      WARNING: Do not use a microwave oven to warm formula. Serious burns may result.

      Refer to the product label for the most accurate information.

      Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm. Once prepared, infant formula can spoil quickly. Either feed immediately or cover and store in refrigerator at 35–40°F (2–4°C) for no longer than 24 hours. Do not use prepared formula if it is unrefrigerated for more than a total of 2 hours. Do not freeze prepared formula. After feeding begins, use formula within 1 hour or discard.

      1. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before preparing formula.
      2. Pour the desired amount of water into the bottle. Add powder.
      3. Cap bottle and SHAKE WELL.
