    RESULTS:

    77 mOsm/kg for a 1 mL sample diluted with 59 mL of H2O

    It’s important to maintain a low Osmolality rating when adding iron therapy or a multivitamin with iron for an infant, especially so with premature infants for risk of possibly causing electrolyte disturbances leading to dehydration. *

    “Human milk is nutritionally better than formula milk for preterm infants. However, unfortified human milk may fail to meet the theoretical requirements of very low birth weight (VLBW). Human milk fortifier (HMF) increases the nutritional content of human milk. However, the important factor of concern in feeding VLBW is the osmolality, the higher the osmolality, the greater the risk of necrotizing entero colitis (NEC). Therefore, high osmolality in fortified human milk should be considered for this condition.” (1)

    “Routine warming of breast milk with glucose polymer-containing additives, or the addition of lactase enzyme to lactose-containing feedings, can increase osmolality to levels that exceed current guidelines for premature infant feedings.” (2)

    The authors of the new American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommendations for prevention of iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anemia conclude “exclusively breastfed term infants [should] receive an iron supplementation of 1 mg/kg per day, starting at 4 months of age.”1

    The AAP recommends that all infants and children, including adolescents, have a minimum daily intake of 400 IU of vitamin D beginning soon after birth. Exclusively and partially breastfed babies should receive 400 IU of vitamin D each day starting in the first few days of life and continuing up until babies are weaned to at least 1 liter or 1 quart of vitamin D fortified formula or milk.”2
