If human milk is used: If possible measure* the protein content of human milk and add human milk fortifier according to the instructions. Then add the appropriate amount of protein supplement to achieve the recommended level of protein: 3.6-4.1g/100kcal. *if not analysing the protein content of human milk then as a guide the protein content of preterm milk is approximately 1.5g/100mls (2.3g/100kcal).

To adjust the protein level to meet the recommendation for extremely low birth weight infants, 0.4-0.9g of nutriprem protein supplement per 100mls of nutriprem 1 needs to be added. If using another low birthweight formula, a different amount of nutriprem protein supplement may be needed. All nutriprem products carry preparation instructions.
