Abbott EleCare® – 14.1 oz – Amino acid-based powder infant formula with iron
Supports growth of infants 0-12 months
EleCare is a nutritionally complete amino acid-based formula for infants who cannot tolerate intact or hydrolyzed protein. It’s hypoallergenic and clinically shown to support the growth of exclusively formula-fed infants.1 Protein source is comprised of 100% free amino acids and has DHA/ARA, nutrients that help support brain and eye development. EleCare helps manage symptoms of severe food allergies and various gastrointestinal (GI) conditions. Powdered infant formulas are not sterile and should not be fed to premature infants or infants who might have immune problems unless directed and supervised by your baby’s doctor.
Never use a microwave to warm formula. Serious burns can result.
Preparation of Feedings
Your baby’s health depends on carefully following these directions. Proper hygiene, handling and storage are important when preparing infant formula. Failure to follow these directions could result in severe harm. Ask your baby’s doctor if you need to use cooled, boiled water for mixing and if you need to boil (sterilize), bottles, nipples and rings before use.
- Wash your hands, surfaces and utensils.
- Pour desired amount of water into clean bottle (see Powder Mixing Guide).
- Add 1 unpacked level scoop (9.4 g) to each 2 fl oz of water; return dry scoop to can.
- Cap bottle; shake well; attach nipple.
- Once feeding begins, use within 1 hour or discard.
For most accurate results, EleCare should be weighed on a scale that reads in grams.The contents of one container (400 g), when mixed as directed (at 20 Cal/fl oz), will yield approximately 95 fl oz of formula.
