There is a product called Sweet-Ease速 which is sometimes given for pain during a procedure such as a circumcision. For the exclusive breast milk feeding measure, PC-05, will Sweet-Ease速 qualify as a medication if it is given for the above reason?

Answer:

Sweet-Ease速 is a 24% sucrose and water solution sometimes given to newborns to reduce discomfort during painful procedures. It is classified as a medication and is not considered to be a feeding for PC-05.
