Fortini Infant is the first and only ready-to-feed, 30 kcal/fl
oz energy- and nutrient-dense formula specifically formulated
for term infants to support catch-up growth.
Designed for infants and young children from 0 to 18 months of
age or 19.8 lbs (9 kg) with or at risk of growth failure,
increased energy requirements, or fluid restrictions due to
conditions including congenital heart disease, chronic lung
disease, respiratory syncytial virus, neurological syndrome or
neuro-disabilities, cystic fibrosis, and non-organic failure to
30 kcal/fl oz
As well-tolerated as standard infant formula
2.6g of protein
per 100kcal meets guidelines to support catch up growth
Ready to feed
Eliminates the complex process of concentrating, and the risk of contamination
REVIEW THE EVIDENCE
HOW FORTINI SUPPORTS CATCH-UP GROWTH
IN A STUDY OF 26 INFANTS — 15 WITH CHD — FORTINI IMPROVED WEIGHT GAIN AND WAS WELL TOLERATED IN INFANTS WITH POOR GROWTH DUE TO CARDIAC AND NON-CARDIAC ETIOLOGIES
of infants achieved weight gain velocity ≥ WHO median for the overall study period
EFFECTS AND TOLERANCE OF FORTINI IN INFANTS FOLLOWING CHD SURGERY
A randomized controlled trial studied tolerance and nutritional response to energy- and nutrient-dense formula (ENDF) compared to a standard infant formula (SIF) in 50 infants (Fortini, n=26). In the immediate days following surgery for CHD infants, ENDF was tolerated equally well and met adequate nutrient intakes sooner.
A CASE OF FEEDING DIFFICULTIES IN A CARDIOLOGY INFANT
An infant diagnosed with a Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) at 4 weeks had insignificant weight gain since birth. At 7 weeks, Fortini was introduced to support catch-up growth. At 10 weeks, weight gain velocity trend had stabilized, and weight gain was steady. Following surgical repair at 14 weeks, she gained an average of 12 g/kg/day crossing up the percentiles to her proportional position..
USE OF A NUTRIENT-DENSE FORMULA IN AN INFANT WITH LATE DIAGNOSIS OF CONGENITAL HEART DISEASE AND SEVERE MALNUTRITION
A 4-month-old infant underwent surgery for a rare congenital heart defect and remained hospitalized for 2.5 months. Parenteral nutrition with energy and nutrient-dense formula (Fortini Infant) was ordered on postoperative day 1.
