Important notice

Breastfeeding is best for babies. Cow & Gate nutriprem protein supplement is a food for specialist medical purposes for the dietary management of extremely low birthweight infants who require additional protein. It should only be used under medical supervision, after full consideration of the feeding options available including breastfeeding. It is not suitable for use as the sole source of nutrition.

Please read this important notice first

By clicking the continue button you’ll be able to find out about infant milks and other products. Breastfeeding is best and provides many benefits. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, mothers eat a healthy, balanced diet. Combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of breast milk, and reversing the decision not to breastfeed is difficult. The social and financial implications of using an infant milk should be considered. Improper use of an infant milk or inappropriate foods or feeding methods may present a health hazard. If an infant milk is used, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use carefully – failure to follow the instructions may make an infant ill. Follow-on milk should only be used as part of a mixed diet and not as a breastmilk substitute before 6 months.

Foods for special medical purposes should only be used under medical supervision.
