    contains milk and soy.
  • Fat
    - Enfamil Newborn provides 48% of Calories as fat; similarly, human milk provides approximately 50% of Calories as fat. The fat in Enfamil Newborn is derived primarily from a four-oil fat blend and from single-cell oils. This combination of fats results in a fatty acid profile similar to typical U.S. human milk. The fat blend in Enfamil Newborn is composed of:
    - Palm olein oil (44% of total fat), which provides high levels of palmitic and oleic acids. These fatty acids are predominant in human milk.
    - Soy oil (19.5% of total fat), which is a good source of the essential fatty acids linoleic and alpha-linolenic acid. These fatty acids are used to form DHA and ARA, which are important for visual and mental development.
    - Coconut oil (19.5% of total fat), which provides medium-chain saturated fatty acids. These saturated fats are easily digested, absorbed and utilized as a source of energy.
    - High-oleic sunflower oil (14.5% of total fat), which provides oleic acid. Oleic acid is an important source of energy for the infant and a component of nerve cell membranes, which are primarily formed in the first two years after birth.
    - A blend of DHA and ARA from single-cell oils (2.5% of total fat). This blend results in 0.32% of total fatty acids as DHA and 0.64% of total fatty acids as ARA.
    - The levels of total fat and saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids in Enfamil Newborn are patterned after levels found in mature U.S. breast milk. Human milk contains, on average, between 20% and 24% of the fatty acids as palmitic acid. Using palm olein oil in the fat blend results in Enfamil Newborn having palmitic acid levels similar to breast milk. Linoleic acid provides about 17% of the total fatty acids in Enfamil Newborn, which is within the range of means found in average, mature U.S. breast milk (14%–19%) DHA and ARA Enfamil formulas have our blend of DHA and ARA, two nutrients also found in breast milk that support brain and eye development and the immune system.
  • Carbohydrate
    - The carbohydrate content in Enfamil Newborn is 43.5% of total Calories. The primary carbohydrate is lactose, which is the primary carbohydrate found in breast milk§§. The source of lactose in Enfamil Newborn is cow;s milk. Enfamil Newborn also contains the prebiotic carbohydrates galactooligosaccharide (GOS) and polydextrose (PDX). GOS is synthesized from lactose and consists of short, variable-length chains of galactose ending in glucose, while PDX consists of random, highly branched glucose polymers plus sorbitol. A prebiotic is defined as "a selectively fermented ingredient that allows specific changes, both in the composition and/or activity in the gastrointestinal microflora that confers benefits upon host well-being and health." Prebiotics like GOS and PDX are added to infant formula to substitute for some of the functional properties of human milk oligosaccharides (HMO) which, after lactose and lipid, is the third most abundant and complex component in human milk.
  • Protein Enfamil Newborn provides 8.5% of Calories as protein, derived from whey and nonfat milk. (For comparison, human milk provides 6–7% of Calories as protein.) This protein level meets the growing infant;s need for protein. Enfamil Newborn provides an easy-to-digest, 80:20 whey-to-casein protein blend patterned after typical early breast milk of days 3 through 5 of lactation16. With appropriate levels of essential and nonessential amino acids, the protein is of excellent quality and supports healthy growth and development.
  • Vitamins and Minerals
    - Enfamil Newborn provides vitamins and minerals at levels that meet the requirements of the Infant Formula Act and recommendations of the Life Sciences Research Organization (LSRO). These vitamin and mineral levels are appropriate to support infant growth and development.
  • Calcium and Phosphorus
    - Enfamil Newborn supplies 500 mg calcium and 280 mg phosphorus per quart, the same levels as in Enfamil Infant. This level of calcium is adequate to support bone mineralization in infants. The calcium to phosphorus ratio is 1.81:1, which is comparable to the ratio in human milk (2:1). A balanced level of calcium and phosphorus is important for adequate mineral utilization. Feeding Enfamil for the first 4 months of life was shown to result in bone mineral content and bone mineral density comparable to that of breastfed infants at 4 years of age (before the addition of prebiotics)
  • Iron
    - Enfamil Newborn provides 11.5 mg iron per quart, the same level as in other Mead Johnson infant formulas. This level meets current recommendations for iron content of infant formulas. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all infants who are not breastfed receive an iron-fortified formula.
  • Nucleotides
    - Enfamil Newborn formula is patterned after average free nucleotide levels in breast milk—the gold standard. It contains nucleotides at a level of 28 mg/L, similar to the average free nucleotide levels in human milk. Nucleotides are the building blocks of the genetic material RNA and DNA, which are integral to cell function and replication.
  • Electrolytes—Sodium, Potassium and Chloride
    - The electrolyte levels in Enfamil Newborn are within the ranges specified by U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations, as mandated by the U.S. Infant Formula Act. The sodium, potassium and chloride levels are 27 mg/100 Calories, 108 mg/100 Calories and 63 mg/100 Calories, respectively
  • Preparations:
    - The baby’s health depends on carefully following these instructions. Proper hygiene, preparation, dilution, use and storage are important when preparing infant formula.
    - Powdered infant formulas are not sterile and should not be fed to premature infants or infants who might have immune problems, unless directed and supervised by a doctor.
    - Discuss with parents whether they need to use cooled, boiled water for mixing and whether they need to boil clean utensils, bottles and nipples in water before use.
    - Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before preparing formula. Pour desired amount of water into bottle.
    - Add powder. Cap bottle and SHAKE WELL.
  • Powder Storage
    - Store powder at room temperature; avoid extreme temperatures.
    - After opening, keep tub lid tightly closed, store in a dry area and use contents within 1 month.
    - Completely empty tub and wipe clean with a clean, dry cloth before refilling.
    - Use product by date on container. Nutritional powders are not sterile
    - Do not use a microwave oven to prepare or warm formula. Serious burns may result.
