Feedings

Definitions of Feeding Types

  • Abbott Feedings – Feeding Products made by Abbott available as ready-to-feed or can be used as part of a Custom Feeding.
  • Feeding Product – A user-entered, commercially available Feeding.
  • Custom Feedings – A user-created Feeding mix that can be tailored to meet specific needs by adding together Feedings and/or ingredients.

Definitions of Sorting Methods

  • My Feedings – Feeding Products or Custom Feedings you created and saved.
  • My Hospital’s Feedings – Feeding Products or Custom Feedings created by the users within your hospital’s WebNova™ account. View who created the Feeding under the “Owner” column and the date that user added or modified it in WebNova.

How do I create a Custom Feeding?

STEP 1:

Click “Create a Custom Feeding.”

STEP 2:

Enter a name in the “Feeding Name” field and a brief description in the “Description” section. Remember to create a name that is unique enough to help you recall the purpose of the Custom Feeding. If you create a Feeding name that is already used by you or someone within your hospital’s WebNova account, you will be asked to create a different name before proceeding.

STEP 3:

Click the “Select Feedings” button.

STEP 4:

Check the boxes next to the Feeding Products you wish to combine. You can filter your choices by clicking on the options at the top of the page. These options include All, My Favorites, My Feedings, My Hospital’s Feedings, and Abbott Feedings. You can mix a total of 6 individual components (example: water, infant formula powder). The Custom Feeding will reflect the number of components used in that Feeding. Please note how many you are adding together so you don’t go over the maximum of 6.

STEP 5:

Click “Add Selected Feedings.” You may see a pop-up if you have gone over the maximum components. In order to proceed, you will need to deselect components until 6 or fewer are selected (example: human milk, Similac® Human Milk Fortifier, Similac® Special Care®, Liquid Protein Fortifier).

STEP 6: 

You have the option of adjusting the settings in the following ways: 

  • Adjust Total Volume: The total volume of a feeding can be adjusted up or down. This is directly related to the batch size.
  • Adjust Scaling – Feeding Component: Any field of 1 feeding component can be edited for desired results. All values will automatically update for that feeding component and total. The values of the other feeding components will remain as they were.
  • Adjust Scaling – All: Feeding component fields or Custom Feeding total fields can be edited and changed to your desired results. All values will automatically update, and ratios within and between the feeding components will be maintained.
STEP 7: 

Once you are satisfied with the total nutrient amounts, click “Save.” After you have saved your Custom Feeding, it will show in “My Feedings.” Other WebNova users from your hospital can view and use your Custom Feeding, but they can’t edit it.

 

NOTE: WebNova uses mL to calculate Custom Feedings, not fl oz. Ensure that all values are entered in mL for proper calculations. All WebNova scaling calculations are processed and rounded to the fourth decimal place—the resulting output will result in either 3 or 4 decimal places.

How Do I copy a Custom Feeding?

STEP 1: 

Select an existing Feeding.

STEP 2: 

Click “Copy.”

STEP 3: 

Enter a name in the “Feeding Name” field. The Custom Feeding name must be different from the one you are copying or that is already being used by you or someone within your hospital’s account.

STEP 4: 

Click “Save” at the bottom of the screen.

 

NOTE: WebNova does not currently support copying a Feeding Product or an Abbott Administrator-entered feeding.

How do I add a Feeding Product?

STEP 1:

Click “Add a Feeding Product.”

STEP 2: 

Enter the Feeding Product’s name in the “Feeding Name” form field. Add a description in the “Description” section.

STEP 3: 

Enter the Analysis Amount and appropriate Unit of Measure.

STEP 4:

Enter nutrient values and other information for the product from the package nutrition label into the appropriate fields. NOTE: Abbott is not responsible for inaccurate nutrient values.

STEP 5:

Click “Save” at the bottom of the screen. After you have saved the Feeding Product entry, it will show in your “My Feedings” section of WebNova. Other WebNova users from your hospital’s account can view and make Custom Feedings with your Feeding Product, but they can’t edit it. Only you can edit this Feeding Product. NOTE: If you make edits after saving, the other users within your WebNova hospital account will not be alerted of a change. It would be best to notify other account users of any changes in case it impacts any Custom Feedings created using your Feeding Product entry.

 

NOTE: When adding a Feeding Product, users must enter the same numeric value in Analysis Amount as the corresponding unit of measure in the nutrient column. All WebNova scaling calculations are processed and rounded to the fourth decimal place—the resulting output will result in either 3 or 4 decimal places.

What is a draft?

When a WebNova user has started to create a Custom Feeding but leaves the screen in the process, after 3 hours, WebNova will save a draft of this work. The Custom Feeding in progress will appear on the home page under “Drafts.” When the user has decided to finish the Custom Feeding entry, the draft can be opened, completed, and saved.

 

NOTE: The user must create a Feeding name and add at least one product to the Custom Feeding in order for WebNova to save a draft.

How do I browse Feedings?

STEP 1: 

Click “Browse Feedings” in the navigation.

STEP 2: 

You can sort the view of your Feedings by clicking on the carats at the top of each column. These include Feeding Name (A-Z or Z-A); Type (Abbott Feeding, My Feeding, My Hospital’s Feedings); Owner (Names from A-Z or Z-A); Updated (Most Recent to Oldest or Oldest to Most Recent). You can also filter your view by clicking the “Filter Feedings” link. Next, you can filter by clicking “Only Favorited Feedings,” selecting a Feeding type and the owner name, choosing a date range, and then clicking “Apply Filters.” You can click “Reset Filter” to start over.

How do I create My Favorites?

Click on the heart icon next to a Feeding you would like to save to “My Favorites” in WebNova. When you click on the heart, it will change color to indicate you have favorited that Feeding.

Can I delete Feedings?

The creator of a Custom Feeding or Feeding Product can delete it.

There are 2 ways a user can delete their Feedings.

  • 1. Go to the feeding details screen by clicking on your entered Custom Feedings or Feeding Product and select the delete button at the bottom. When you click on “Delete,” you will see a pop-up asking you to confirm if you want to delete the Feeding.
  • 2. You can bulk delete Feedings by going to the list of Feedings, checking the boxes to the left of the Feeding name, and clicking the trash can icon at the top of the screen. The checkboxes will only appear next to a Feeding you created. NOTE: You can only bulk delete Feedings one page at a time. 

 

NOTE: If an individual is no longer a WebNova user, the WebNova Hospital Leader may delete Feedings created by the individual who left the WebNova hospital account.
