8 What are Nutramigen

8 What are Nutramigen with LGG ® and Nutramigen PURAMINO? Nutramigen with LGG ® and Nutramigen PURAMINO are two different types of hypoallergenic formula, both specially formulated for babies with CMA. Nutramigen with LGG ® Nutramigen with LGG ® is a type of formula known as an extensively hydrolysed formula (eHF). The protein in Nutramigen with LGG ® is taken from cow’s milk but has been broken down (hydrolysed) into tiny pieces that are small enough to rarely trigger an allergic reaction in most infants who have CMA. Nutramigen with LGG ® also contains Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (trademark LGG ® ), a friendly bacteria. The gut is a natural barrier against harmful bacteria and food allergens, but this can be disrupted in children with CMA. Nutramigen with LGG ® contains LGG ® and extensively hydrolysed protein for the dietary management of CMA. • Nutramigen 1 with LGG ® is suitable for use as a sole source of nutrition for babies with CMA from birth to 6 months • Nutramigen 2 with LGG ® is suitable for use as part of a varied diet in babies from 6 months onwards

9 Cow’s milk allergy Nutramigen PURAMINO Nutramigen PURAMINO is a type of formula known as an amino acid-based formula (AAF). If your child has severe or multiple food allergies or your baby’s symptoms did not resolve on an eHF product, a doctor may have recommended your baby to have Nutramigen PURAMINO. Nutramigen PURAMINO is not made from extensively hydrolysed cow’s milk protein; instead it is made up of individual amino acids, the building blocks of protein. Nutramigen PURAMINO is nutritionally complete for babies up to 6 months of age and can be used as a part of a varied diet from 6 months onwards. Like similar formulas, all Nutramigen formulas contain DHA, also known as an omega-3 fatty acid. After starting Nutramigen with LGG ® or Nutramigen PURAMINO, you may notice that your baby produces frequent loose stools of a greenish colour — this is usually normal for babies fed with specialist CMA formulas.
