Similac® PM 60/40

Similac® PM 60/40

Low-Iron Infant Formula
  • A 20 Cal/fl oz formula for infants who would benefit from lowered mineral intake, including those with impaired renal function.
  • Use under medical supervision.

  • Mineral levels closely approximating the mineral content of human milk (60:40 ratio of whey to casein).
  • Calcium-to-phosphorus ratio and content designed to manage serum calcium disorders—both hypercalcemia and hypocalcemia due to hyperphosphatemia.
  • Gluten-free.
  • Halal.
  • Kosher.


  • Additional iron should be supplied from other sources.
  • In conditions where the infant is losing abnormal quantities of one or more electrolytes, it may be necessary to supply electrolytes from sources other than the formula.
  • It may be necessary to supply low-birth-weight infants weighing less than 1500 g at birth additional calcium, phosphorus, and sodium during periods of rapid growth.
  • Never use a microwave oven to warm formula. Serious burns can result.
