Experience of using Nanny-1 formula with prebiotics in young infants with functional constipations

O.Yu. Belousova, O.B. Hanzii


Background. Relevance is associated with a decrease in the number of breastfed children and the choice of breast milk substitute. Features of the composition and properties of the modern adapted formula based on goat milk — Nanny-1 with prebiotics allow it to be used in the nutrition of young infants. The purpose was to assess the clinical effectiveness of Nanny-1 formula with prebiotics in young infants with functional constipations. Materials and methods. We have examined 64 formula-fed children aged 1 to 6 months with functional constipations. Babies were divided into 2 groups: 32 of them received the adapted goat-milk-based formula Nanny-1 with prebiotics (group 1), and 32 children — cow-milk-based formula with prebiotics (group 2). The examination included laboratory studies, evaluation of weight/height parameters, dynamics of functional gastrointestinal disorders. Results. Patients of both groups had a stable increase in body weight and gain in height. After a month of taking Nanny-1 with prebiotics, the incidence of functional digestive disorders in infants of the first group decreased. The number of babies with positive dynamics of gastrointestinal disorders receiving cow-milk-based formula was less than in group 1. In most infants fed using goat-milk-based formula with a prebiotic complex, the bowel emptying was regular and soft, stool consistency improved, the number of defecations was 1–3 times a day, constipations continued in 15.6 % of children. In the group of babies who received cow-milk-based formula, constipations remained in 9 infants (28.1 %). Conclusions. Using Nanny-1 formula with prebiotics in the nutrition of infants promotes their normal physical development and a decrease in the incidence of functional constipations and other gastrointestinal disorders.
