Smiles…Thanks to Special Formula!

Twins Reagan and Sydney are smiling thanks in part to their Prenan formula. These adorable sisters were born prematurely in February, and Prenan is especially formulated for premature infants like them. It helps to increase weight and rapid growth in infants with low birth weight. Don’t these sisters look wonderful?

Because of the cleft lip or palate, an opening between the mouth and nasal cavity, the baby cannot create the suction needed to efficiently pull milk from the bottle or breast. It is like trying to drink from a straw with a crack in it. Read more.

Kenley was born prematurely, and weighed only 1 kg, or 2.2 pounds, at the time of her birth. We can only guess that her birth family could not afford the medical care that Kenley needed, and she was abandoned at a local hospital.
