Notes one of the most important things parents should know is no cow milk-baseded baby formula: "Preemies should receive a 100% breast milk diet."
Human milk is one of the best ways to help prevent necrotizing enterocolitis in premature and vulnerable infants. When mother's own milk is not available, pasteurized donor milk is the next best option, not bovine based baby formula.
For over thirty (30) years the manufacturers of baby formula have known or should have known, that their cow milk based baby formula products could cause necrotizing enterocolitis.
1990 Breast milk and neonatal necrotising enterocolitis Study on 926 preterm infants found that NEC was six to ten times more common in infants fed cow milk-bades baby formula.Among babies born at more than 30 weeks' gestation confirmed necrotising enterocolitis was rare in those whose diet included breast milk; it was 20 times more common in those fed cow milk-based baby formula.
2011 The Surgeon General's Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding The U.S. Surgeon General published a report in 2011 stating formula feeding with cow milk based bady formula is associated with higher rates of of NEC. In the same report, the Surgeon General concluded that premature infants who are not breastfed are 138% more likely to develop NEC.
2021 Breastfeeding and the Use of Human Milk The Official Journal of The American Academy of Pediatrics published a study that included the following … “Meta-analyses of 4 randomized clinical trials performed over the period 1983 to 2005 support the conclusion that feeding preterm infants human milk is associated with a significant reduction (58%) in the incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) than a bovine based formula. A more recent study of preterm infants fed an exclusive human milk diet compared with those fed human milk supplemented with cow-milk-based baby formula products noted a 77% reduction in NEC. One case of NEC could be prevented if 10 infants received an exclusive human milk diet, and 1 case of NEC requiring surgery or resulting in death could be prevented if 8 infants received an exclusive human milk diet.”
