What is Nestle PreNan Preterm Infant Formula?

Nestle Pre Nan Preterm Infant Formula 400g is specifically formulated to support low birthweight and preterm infants. For use from birth onwards to offer your baby sufficient vitamins and nutrients. Remember, breastmilk is the best food for babies.

How to use:

Pre NAN is for use only under medical supervision. The following feeding table can be used as a guide. Institutional use: the physician should calculate the desired total daily intake of water and energy for each infant based on his/her weight and energy requirements. The daily quantities should be divided into the desired number of feedings. The volume of water and the weight of Pre NAN powder should be measured precisely.

(Weight of infant in grams) - (total daily amount of water in ml) - (total daily quantity of Pre NAN powder in grams) - (total daily quantity of prepared formula in ml)**:

  • 1000g - 140ml - 25g - 155ml.
  • 1200g - 170ml - 30g - 190ml.
  • 1400g - 200ml - 35g - 220ml.
  • 1600g - 225ml - 40g - 250ml.
  • 1800g - 250ml - 45g - 280ml.
  • 2000g - 285ml - 50g- 315ml.
  • 2200g - 310ml - 55g - 345ml.

Until very low birth weight infants achieve adequate intakes of formula, they should receive a multivitamin supplement including vitamin D, to avoid deficiency.* This may vary based on temperature and humidity in the environment of the baby. **Assuming a target supply of 120 -125 kcal per day. ***At 80 kcal per 100ml of prepared formula.
