Tip 30: specialist preterm milks

Nutriprem 1 contains slightly more kcal than breast-milk, about twice as much protein, Ca, PO4 and iron, but about the same amount of fat.

As a rough guide, full requirements of Nutriprem 1 are about 150ml/kg/day and of expressed breast-milk (EBM) are about 180ml/kg/day.
