There is no such thing as standard human milk,
or an average preterm baby
The nutritional status of milk varies from mother to mother.
The only way to be certain of its quality is to analyse.
This information is essential for clinicians to decide what nutritional measures preterm babies need.
> Protein variation
The macronutrient content of human milk used in neonatal care can vary greatly.
Miris Human Milk Analyser provides the information needed to decide what nutritional measures are best.
Many preterm babies need more protein
With the minimum of time and fuss, Miris Human Milk Analyser gives energy, fat, carbohydrate, and true protein content in milk.
Preterm babies have individual needs and can only take in small feeds. In some cases they may not have the digestive capacity for the volume of breast milk needed to meet their nutritional needs.
As the protein content of human milk declines after birth, preterm babies run the risk of a protein deficit. Extreme and very low weight pre-term babies often need additional energy and protein to catch up on lost growth.
Miris Human Milk Analyser helps develop your nutritional programme.
