Neocate Infant DHA/ARA is an Infant Formula containing nucleotides and DHA and ARA. Nucleotides, DHA and ARA are important nutrients for infants found in breast milk. These nutrients promote a baby’s visual and brain development. Manufactured by Nutricia, Neocate Infant DHA/ARA is hypoallergenic. This amino-acid-based formula helps manage cow milk allergy, multiple food protein intolerance (MFPI) and food-allergy-associated conditions: gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), short bowel syndrome (SBS), malabsorption and other GI disorders. Neocate Infant DHA/ARA is important for healthy infant growth and development.

Directions for Preparation and Use of Neocate Infant Formula
How do I prepare Neocate Infant?
To make a standard dilution (20 cal/fl oz), add 1 unpacked level scoop (4.6 g) of powder to each fluid ounce of water. Only use the scoop provided. Use a gram scale for the most accurate results. Do not boil formula or use a microwave to prepare or warm formula.
1. Wash hands thoroughly and clean the preparation area.
2. Pour the required amount of cooled, boiled water into a sterilized feeding bottle*.
3. Add the prescribed amount of scoops of Neocate Infant DHA/ARA to the water.
4. Place the cap on the bottle and shake until the powder dissolves.
Important Preparation Information
Freshly prepared formula is best. Formula prepared in advance must be cooled rapidly, stored in the refrigerator and used within 24 hours of preparation. Formula remaining in the bottle after one hour of feeding should be discarded. Tube feeding hand time should not exceed 4 hours.
*Boiling is the preferred method for sterilizing water, bottles, nipples and mixing utensils.
How can Neocate be stored?
Prepared formula can be stored in a refrigerator for up to 24 hours
Once a bottle is introduced to your infant’s mouth, all formula remaining in the bottle should be discarded after one hour
Opened cans of Neocate with plastic lid securely fastened should be stored in a cool, dry place and used within one month
Sealed cans of Neocate should be stored in a cool, dry place and used by the expiration date, which is located on the bottom of each can
What is the best way for me to warm the Neocate once it has been prepared?
As with any other infant formula, a microwave oven should not be used to reheat Neocate, as this can lead to “hot spots” in the formula. It is recommended to place the prepared bottle either under warm, running water, or in a container filled with warm water.
Cover and store open can in a cool dry place. Use within one month. Store unopened cans at room temperature. Avoid extreme temperatures.
