Exclusive Human Milk Diet

Kern Medical has partnered with Prolacta Bioscience to offer an exclusive human milk diet, with the use of human milk fortifiers. A human milk fortifier is added to mom’s milk or donor breast milk to provide more calories, protein and minerals per serving without increasing the volume. Babies born early require more nutrition to grow and often can only tolerate small amounts of milk. Studies show that NICU babies on an exclusive human milk diet tolerate feedings better, grow faster, and go home to their families sooner than NICU babies on cow’s milk-derived fortifiers.

Kern Medical was the first hospital in Kern County offering an exclusive human milk diet.
