Nutramigen is designed for infants who experience fat malabsorption and who may also be sensitive to intact proteins. Fat malabsorption or steatorrhea may be associated with cystic fibrosis, short bowel syndrome, intractable diarrhea and severe protein calorie malnutrition.
Nutramigen is designed to provide a sole source of nutrition for infants up to age 6 months, and to provide a major source of nutrition through 12 months of age. Normally, in feeding infants, gradual introduction of solid foods after 4–6 months of age is an important developmental as well as nutritional step.
In cases of chronic malabsorption disorders, Nutramigen is sometimes continued as a milk substitute in the diet of children. This and similar supplemental use of Nutramigen in the diet beyond 12 months of age may make a significant contribution to the maintenance of good nutrition in such patients, and is not known to be harmful in any way. When Nutramigen is used as a milk substitute, the total calcium content of the diet should be assessed.
Extended use of Nutramigen (or other infant formulas) as a sole source of diet is most appropriately monitored by physicians and nutritionists on a case-by-case basis, with attention to developmental as well as nutritional implications of such a dietary regimen.
The baby’s health depends on carefully following these instructions. Proper hygiene, preparation, dilution, use and storage are important when preparing infant formula.
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.
Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before preparing formula.
Clean can lid, SHAKE CAN WELL, and open; or SHAKE BOTTLE WELL and remove cap and foil seal.
Pour desired amount of water into feeding bottle. Add an equal amount of concentrated liquid. SHAKE OR STIR WELL.
Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm. Opened cans and prepared formula can spoil quickly. Either feed immediately or cover and store in refrigerator at 35°–40°F (2°–4°C) for no longer than 48 hours. Do not use opened can and/or prepared formula if they are un refrigerated for more than a total of 2 hours. Do not freeze prepared formula. After feeding begins, use within 1 hour or discard.
Store unopened cans/bottles at room temperature. Avoid excessive heat. Do not freeze. Use by date on top of can or on bottle. Nutramigen does not look or taste like milk or soy formulas. It may separate in the refrigerator. Shake well before feeding.
CAUTION: Use product by date on container.
WARNING: Do not use a microwave oven to prepare or warm formula. Serious burns may result.
This product is not recommended for routine use in very low-birth-weight infants. Some of these infants may be at increased risk of developing gastrointestinal complications.
Nutramigen® contains milk and soy. Nutramigen is hypoallergenic. Rarely, however, allergic reactions to extensively hydrolyzed casein formulas have been reported.
