SIMILAC LIQUI-MIX SYSTEM

The Similac Liqui-Mix System is a customizable, all-liquid feeding solution that delivers a high-calorie, nutrient-dense feeding to your NICU patients.

Customizable

Flexible mixing allows you to prepare individualized feedings to meet the unique nutrition needs of each patient.

Commercially Sterile

Premature infants are often immunocompromised and may be at high risk for developing infections. Powdered formulas are not commercially sterile.

All-Liquid

Reconstituted powder infant formulas have potential for microbial growth and mixing errors.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the CDC* recommend that powdered infant formulas should not be used in the NICU unless there is no nutritionally appropriate alternative available.

* Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
