This is a new product just starting to be used. We are doing a trial to introduce it to the staff and Dr.'s. The insurance companies aren't paying for it yet,so some steps will have to be taken of course. The idea is to avoid dairy products while still increaseing the nutritive quality of the mother's own milk for the very small premie babies that need to grow, mainly extra protein, phosphorous, calcium and calories.

Hopefully the trials will go well and the insurance companies will start paying for it! This could really be beneficial to alot of babies. I think the last thing a preemie needs is a cow's milk based product added in, but I know that some babies really need the extra calories. I got lucky that Joshua didn't, but he was big for his gestation.

Ive heard mixed things about this.. but probably would give it a try with my youngest considering things are well with it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> .. He is still EBF with Neocate added for extra calories (30cal/oz) We go through a lot of formula..

We just started fortified milk yesterday. I'd be SO much happier if it wasn't based on cows milk.

You can used non-cows milk based products to fortify.

You can request the prolacta bioscience fortifier to be special ordered if you want to pay for it. It is already on the market. Studies now are after market trials.<br><br>
Insurance companies will pay when consumers demand it just like everything else. They pay for wigs when people have cancer, you can't tell me a wig cures cancer.
