More on NEC
Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) causes intestinal tissue to die, according to the Cleveland Clinic. Holes can also develop in the intestine, allowing bacteria to leak into the baby’s abdomen. NEC may lead to additional serious health problems, including:
- Abdominal infection called peritonitis
- Intestinal stricture, or narrowing of the intestines
- Short bowel syndrome, difficulty absorbing fluids and nutrients
Many of the effects of NEC require surgery to attempt to repair the damage done to a baby’s abdomen and intestine. If the condition is not fatal, infants may also suffer from growth failure and neuro-developmental issues.
Symptoms of NEC
- Abdominal pain and swelling
- Diarrhea with bloody stool
- Green or yellow vomit
- Changes in heart rate and blood pressure
- Changes in body temperature and breathing
- Refusing to eat
- Lack of weight gain
Tragically, premature babies have suffered severe injuries or died after ingesting cow’s milk-based formula—and their parents were never warned of the risks. Several parents have filed lawsuits against Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson & Company to seek justice for the harm done.
If your baby was fed cow’s milk-based formula, suffered abdominal injuries, and was diagnosed with NEC contact Craig Kelley at Inserra | Kelley | Sewell. We can help you get answers. Call 800-642-1242. There is no obligation when you contact us.
Toxic Baby Formulas
Many of the formulas administered in hospitals contain cow’s milk and can potentially be harmful to your child. Here are popular bovine-based formulas to be aware of:
- Formulas used in NICUs
- Formulas gifted from hospitals
- Earth’s Best
- Happy Baby
- Go & Grow
- Parent’s Choice
- Baby’s Only
If your hospital administers any of these formulas in the NICU, ask them about the best course of action for you and your child. Stopping use and switching to breastfeeding or other alternatives may help avoid necrotizing enterocolitis.
