Human milk and infant formulas l.jpg

Human Milk and Infant Formulas:

  • Breast milk

  • Standard Infant Formulas

  • Premature Infant Formulas

  • Specialty Infant Formulas

  • Modular Additives


Breast milk characteristics l.jpg

Breast Milk Characteristics

  • First choice feeding for MOST infants

  • Immunologic factors

    • Protective against diarrhea causing infections and otitis in infants

  • Trophic to GI tract

    • Well tolerated by infants with short bowel

  • Fatty acids important to brain/visual development


Breast milk vs standard milk based formulas l.jpg

Breast Milk vs StandardMilk Based Formulas

  • Energy: slightly higher

  • Protein: Lower, but higher quality (whey and casein)

  • Renal Solute load: Lower

  • Carbohydrate: Mainly lactose

  • Fats: Long chain; DHA/AA (lipases increase absorption)


Common challenges with breast feeding l.jpg

Common Challenges with Breast Feeding

  • Baby sided problems

    • Illness preventing/interfering with early feeding

    • Anatomic malformations

    • Sleepy baby

    • Thrush


Common challenges with breast feeding sleepy baby l.jpg

Common Challenges with Breast Feeding Sleepy Baby

  • Sleep cycles

    • REM sleep-----deep sleep (15 min +/-) ----wake (quiet alert)

  • If cannot wake, in deep sleep, try again in 15+/- minutes

  • Watch for hunger cues e.g., sucking on hands


Common challenges with breast feeding sleepy baby7 l.jpg

Common Challenges with Breast Feeding Sleepy Baby

  • Waking techniques

    • Hold by armpits and dangle

    • Put feet on hard surface

    • Spin around

    • Last resort: stroke palate with finger until sucking, then take finger out and put nipple in.


Common challenges with breast feeding8 l.jpg

Common Challenges with Breast Feeding

  • Mom sided problems

    • Low milk supply

      • Frequent feeding, pump after feeding

      • Medications: Reglan, Domperidone Fenugreek

    • Sore Nipples

    • Clogged ducts

    • Mastitis

    • Yeast Infection


Breast feeding is baby getting enough l.jpg

Breast Feeding: Is baby getting enough?

  • Regain birthweight by 1 week

  • Newborn to 2 months gain > 1 ounce per day

  • Newborn to 4-6 weeks: 2-10 bowel movements per day

    • Bowel movements are better clue than wet diapers.

When baby is not growing l.jpg

When Baby is Not Growing

  • Normal Weight gain and linear growth

    • Guo et al J Pediatrics 1991

  • Assess Feeding

    • Number feedings/day

    • Feeding environment

    • BF: baby “empties” breasts each feeding

    • Formula: volume per feeding

  • Vomiting? Diarrhea? Medical issues that increase needs/decrease intake?


When baby is not growing31 l.jpg

When Baby is Not Growing

  • Increase number of feedings/day

  • If baby <6 months d/c solids, increase breast milk or formula

  • Monitor weight weekly

  • If no improvement in 1 week consider increasing caloric concentration of breast milk or formula to 24 kcal/oz.


When baby is not growing32 l.jpg

When Baby is Not Growing

  • In cases of increased need due to medical condition or fluid limit, may need to go higher than 24 kcal/oz

  • In all cases monitor closely watch for

    • Signs of dehydration (baby may take less volume of concentrated feed)

    • Vomiting

    • Diarrhea


Increasing caloric density of formula l.jpg

Increasing Caloric Density of Formula

  • Concentrate formula (decrease water added):

    • Calculate kcals desired (e.g. 30 oz of 24 kcal/oz formula = 720kcal)

    • Divide kcals by kcal/oz of liquid or scoop of powder (e.g. 720 kcal divided by 40 kcal/oz liquid conc. = 18 oz liquid conc. Formula).

    • Add water to make final volume (12 oz water + 18 oz liquid conc. Formula = 30 oz 24kcal/oz formula)


Using modulars to increase calories l.jpg

Using Modulars to Increase Calories

  • Example: Making 30 oz of 30 kcal per oz formula (30oz X 30kcal/oz = 900 kcal)

    • Start with 24 kcal/oz formula:

      • 24kcal/oz X 30oz = 720 kcal

    • 900kcal - 720 kcal = 180 kcal from modulars

    • Use Polycose and Micro lipid to make up additional kcals (approximately 90 kcal of each)


Using modulars to increase calories continued l.jpg

Using Modulars to Increase Calories continued

  • Polycose 23 kcal/TBSP

  • 90 kcal /23kcal/TBSP =3.9TBSP (use 4 TBSP X 23 kcal = 92 kcal; still need 88 kcal)

  • Microlipid 4.5 kcal/mL

  • 88 kcal/4.5 kcal/mL =19.55 mL (use 20 mL X 4.5 kcal = 90 kcal)

  • Final calculation:720kcal + 92 kcal + 90 kcal = 902 kcal/30oz =30.07 kcal/oz


Slide36 l.jpg

Know What You Are Feeding

  • Caloric density, protein, fat and carbohydrate vitamin and mineral content.

  • Osmolality: goal is for <400mOsm/kg H2O; can slowly go up to 700

    • Meds/modulars increase osmolality

  • Renal Solute Load: goal is for less than 300mOsm/l (all infant and pediatric meet this recommendation when concentrated up to 30 kcal/oz.)

    • Addition of protein will increase Renal Solute Load
