SimplyThick Problems

The FDA is warning parents not to feed milk or formula mixed with SimplyThick to premature babies. There are 15 reports of infants give SimplyThick who developed a “life-threatening intestinal condition.” The FDA released a statement saying it is investigating reasons why SimplyThick made the premature infants so sick and strongly recommends not giving the product to babies who are younger then 37 weeks old.

I always call infants “our most vulnerable.” But, prematurely born infants are really our most vulnerable . They deserve every ounce of protection we can muster for them.
