  • Gluten-free.
  • Halal.
  • Kosher.

  • Precautions
  • Very-low-birthweight infants are particularly susceptible to gastrointestinal complications; therefore, feeding should be initiated cautiously.
  • Use this product only after feedings of lower caloric density are well-established. For improved tolerance, it is best to increase caloric density slowly, by 2- to 4-Cal/fl oz increments.
  • Hydration status should be monitored.
  • 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.
  • <sup>*</sup> Use once feeding tolerance is established.
