- Use this product only after lower caloric density formulas have been tried. It's best to increase caloric density slowly to allow baby's digestion to tolerate formula. Increase calories in two to four calorie a ounce increments.
- Very low-birth-weight infants are particularly susceptible to gastrointestinal complications and should be fed under direction of pediatrician and closely monitored.
- Baby's hydration status should be regularly monitored.
- When formula is used for enteral feeding watch for signs of intolerance or intestinal dysfunction such as: spitting up, abdominal distension, abnormal stools or stool patterns, excessive gastric residuals. These may be signs that the enteral feeding needs to be slowed or discontinued.
- Once infant has reached 8 lbs, talk to pediatrician about the next Similac formula to use for feedings.
- Never warm bottle in the microwave oven as serious burns can result.
