Details

Similac Special Care 24 HIGH PROTEIN with OptiGRO is an infant formula with high protein specially designed for premature and low-birth-rate babies. This special Similac Protein blend supports growth with ten percent higher concentration of protein over its original blend of Special Care 24. When fed 120 calories a day, the high protein baby formula will meet the recommended 4 grams of protein a day for babies with a very low birth weight. It's also iron-fortified to support growth and brain development. It also has Similac OptiGRO, an exclusive blend of DHA, Lutein and Vitamin E for brain and eye and immune development. Lutein is a carotenoid naturally found in colostrum and human milk that's shown to help support eye health in the preterm infant.

Special Care 24 High Protein Infant Formula comes in 2 oz Ready-to-Feed bottle making it fast and easy to use with no measuring or mixing. It supports dietary needs for babies with a gluten-free, halal and kosher diet.

Not worth the wait and price for shipment
I paid over $30 for express shipping, and the shipment was delayed and now it's going to take double the time to arrive than what was promised. Do not use this website if time is of the essence.
