Breast Milk Fortifier for Babies

Babies who are born early or have a low birth weight don’t have enough time to build enough proteins and vitamins that are required for overall health. As a result, many of the NICU babies are often weak. Breast milk fortifiers have been clinically proven in 20+ studies to reduce complications such as Sepsis, feed intolerance and shorten the length of stay in the hospital. Premature babies have special nutritional needs when compared to full-term babies, as they need more energy to grow.

In these cases, breast milk fortifiers for preemies help them grow at a rapid pace by providing adequate protein, minerals, and other nutrients. These additional nutrients if not given, may cause growth deficits which are difficult to compensate at later stages of life. Hence, doctors may advise you to add a fortifier to your breast milk for your premature infant’s health.

Evidence on the Use of Cow Milk Derived Fortifiers

Currently, there is no national guidance on the use of cow-milk-derived fortifiers in the UK. However, a recent survey of neonatal dieticians identified considerable effects associated with cow milk-derived fortifiers across the country.

The latest systematic review by Bown et al. included analyzing 18 RCTs using cow milk-derived multi-nutrient fortifiers. The data indicates that fortification increased weight gain by 1.76 g/day, while gains in length and head circumference were negligible. Generally, the RCTs were small and methodologically poor. The incidence of NEC was higher in the fortified group, although the difference did not reach statistical significance to justify its use.
