Pregestimil is an Infant Formula designed for babies with a metabolic disorder that affects the way the fats are absorbed and converted into energy. Often these babies show signs of GI problems causing constant spit up or vomiting. Manufactured by Mead Johnson Pregestimil contains 55 percent of its fat MCT oil that is more easily absorbed by infants with GI problems. The formula is also lactose-free and hypoallergenic with added DHA and ARA nutrients, found in breast milk, to promote brain and eye development and is iron fortified to support growth.
This specialized formula can be purchased in powder 1 pound cans or 2 oz ready-to-use bottles that require an attached nipple that's sold separately.
