  • Tube feeding
    Measure required amount of nephea Infant (according to desired energy density) and add to pre-boiled water (cooled down to moderate temperature).

 Dental care
Advice for dental care

  • Carbohydrates are indispensible for the nutrition of your child. Like human milk nephea Infant contains carbohydrates. 
  • Incorrect use of the bottle (frequent or continuous sucking) can result in tooth decay (caries) and related damages to health.
  • Thus a bottle feed should only last for the time required for the food intake.
