Bright Beginnings NeoCare Weight Gain Infant Formula availablePBM Products has launched Bright Beginnings NeoCare Weight Gain Infant Formula, a milk-based infant formula intended to meet the nutritional needs of low birth weight infants (LBW) after hospital discharge. Bright Beginnings NeoCare Weight Gain Infant Formula contains docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ARA), as well as higher levels of protein, and vitamins and minerals (eg, calcium, phosphorous, zinc) per 100 Calories compared to standard term formula. Studies have demonstrated that preterm breastfed infants weighed less and did not experience as great an increase in length as preterm infants fed nutrient-enriched post-discharge formula. Similarly, small gestational age infants discharged on a more nutrient-rich formula were significantly longer at 18 months and weighed more at three months of age than infants fed a standard milk-based formula.
Bright Beginnings NeoCare Weight Gain Infant Formula is available in a 12.8oz can of powdered formula.
