You're right...we always leave ours for 4 hours no matter what. Hmmm...typo maybe?

We use "Similac Natural Care" and that's it I think thats if asfar as fortifiers go. I was taught to mix half and half. Like if the total volume is 50 ml, to mix 25 ml of NC and 25 of EBM to yeild 22 cal formula/fortified EBM. Does that sound about right.

Specializes in NICU and neonatal transport.

Back to the original topic... I put a bit of EBM in the lid and mix it up, adding more EBM till its not lumpy anymore.

we normally mix the fortifier in the defrosted milk and shake well. i find that if we dont shake ,the fortifier remains undissolved and blocks the naso gastric tube during feeding...........
