Pregestimil®
Mixing Instructions for 27 Calories per Ounce

Pregestimil® infant formula is normally mixed to provide 20 calories per ounce. Your infant needs
higher calorie formula. Follow these instructions closely when mixing formula. It is important to
measure the infant formula powder and the water correctly. Please measure the water and powder
separately.

Formula mixed to 27 calories per ounce or greater may not supply enough water for some infants.
Fluid status should be watched closely and contact your doctor or nurse if you are concerned.
