Last Updated: Monday, December 18, 2017 - 19:00
Description/Indication Enfamil Premature 24 Cal 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. 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® 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.
