What is Necrotizing Enterocolitis?


Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a serious gastrointestinal problem that inflames the intestinal tissues of premature infants (born BEFORE 37 weeks) and causes a hole to form in the baby’s intestine.

Although there doesn’t appear to be one single cause of Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC), a few of the risk factors include premature births and early feedings into premature infants (born BEFORE 37 weeks). (Source: Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh)

Once the infection sets in, bacteria leaks into the abdomen or bloodstream through the hole usually within two to six weeks after birth

Clinical studies have shown that cow’s milk–based infant formulas cause higher incidences of Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) in premature infants (born BEFORE 37 weeks) than does human milk.

  • Diarrhea and bloody stool
  • Green or yellow vomit
  • Lethargy
  • Loss of appetite
  • Abdominal pain and swelling
  • Changes in heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature

How is Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) connected to baby formula?


Studies have found that Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) in premature infants increases with cow’s milk-based infant formula and decreases with breast milk.

In a complaint filed in 2021, a US District Court heard allegations that Abbott Laboratories and Mead Johnson & Company, LLC are responsible for a child dying from Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC).

The baby was born prematurely and passed after 16 days because the manufacturer failed to properly warn parents of the link between the ingredients and Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC). 

Severe forms of Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) lead to surgery in ~20—40% of all cases.(Source: US National Library of Medicine).
