When a NICU baby does not finish the prescribed feeding of formula or breast milk by bottle, the remainder of the feed must be given via nasal or oral gastric feeding tube, where the patient label is lost and there is a risk of contamination. The EZ-Feeder eliminates the need to draw up the feed into an oral only syringe. Patient label is maintained on the bottle and the EZ-Feeder provides a closed system without the syringe pump.
