Premature babies have special nutritional needs. Compared to full term babies, premature babies need to grow at a faster rate and therefore need more protein, minerals and other nutrients. In order to achieve this, they need to consume more breast milk than their stomachs can hold. If these additional nutrients are not given, may cause growth deficits which are difficult to compensate for at later stages of life. Hence, Health Care Professionals may decide to add a fortifier to the breast milk and make it more nutrient-dense for the premature infant’s feedings.

MMF (Mother’s Milk Fortifier) is made exclusively from 100% human breast milk. It provides essential proteins and calories tailored to meet the unique nutritional requirements of a premature baby.

Available in 1 gram sachet.
