Features
  • OptiGRO® is our exclusive blend of DHA, lutein and vitamin E: these important ingredients are found in breast milk. <ul> <li>DHA for brain and eye development.</li> <li>Lutein to support eye health.</li> <li>Vitamin E, an important nutrient to support developing cells.</li> </ul>
  • Lutein, a carotenoid naturally found in colostrum and human milk, has been shown to help support eye health in the preterm infant.<sup>1,2,3,4</sup>
  • Calcium: phosphorus content and ratio (1.8:1) supports intrauterine accretion rates.<sup>5</sup>
  • Approximately 2 mg iron/kg body weight per day when fed at 120 Cal/kg body weight per day.
  • Gluten-free.
  • Halal.
  • Kosher.

  • Precautions
  • Very-low-birthweight infants are particularly susceptible to gastrointestinal complications; therefore, feeding should be initiated cautiously.
  • Tolerance to enteral feedings should be confirmed by initially offering small volumes of formula followed by cautious progression to higher caloric feedings.
  • Spitting up, abdominal distension, abnormal stools or stool patterns, excessive gastric residuals, or other signs of intestinal dysfunction have been associated with enteral feeding before the intestinal tract is ready to accommodate the regimen. At first signs of these problems, enteral feeding should be slowed or discontinued.
  • Not intended for feeding low-birth-weight infants after they reach a weight of 3600 g (approximately 8 lb) or as directed by a physician.
  • <B>Never use a microwave oven to warm formula.</B> Serious burns can result.
