Neocate LCP is an amino acid-based, hypoallergenic formula designed for infants with Cow’s Milk Allergy. It is prescribed for the dietary management of Cow’s Milk Allergy (CMA), Multiple Food Protein Allergies (MFPA) and other conditions that require an Amino Acid-based Formula (AAF).
Neocate LCP does not contain any cow’s milk protein, so eliminates the possibility of a reaction in babies allergic to this protein. It is manufactured in a cow’s milk- free environment and packaged in a protective atmosphere to provide a high quality product.
Neocate LCP can meet your baby’s complete nutritional requirements.
Neocate LCP tastes and appears different to other baby formula. You may also notice a unique smell when you first open the tin or sachet.
Don’t be tempted to add extra product if it appears less ‘milky’ than other formula. Difficulties in starting on Neocate LCP may be due to your baby having learnt to associate feeding with unpleasant symptoms, rather than being directly related to the product itself.
All babies are different, so yours may show some, all or none of the possible reactions below.
Your baby may have a bigger appetite and start taking larger amounts of Neocate LCP once their symptoms have resolved. This is to be expected, especially if your baby is underweight for their age.
When preparing Neocate LCP for your little one, please follow the guidelines on the tin. Although, always follow any specialist guidance that your Healthcare Professional gives you as they will make recommendations on your baby’s individual requirements.
Don’t alter the recipe unless your Healthcare Professional advises you to.
Your doctor or dietitian should also tell you the appropriate amount of Neocate LCP to give your child.
