Dr. Melinda Elliott discusses the nutritional needs of premature infants in the NICU

On October 30, Prolacta’s chief medical officer, Dr. Melinda Elliott explains the two types of "human milk fortifiers" available in the neonatal intensive care unit: cow milk–based fortifiers and donor breastmilk–based fortifiers. As both are labeled “human milk fortifier,” it is important to ask which type your baby is receiving in the NICU.

Prolacta Bioscience makes fortifiers made from 100% donor breastmilk instead of cow milk.
