Hi, welcome to HCM. Premature babies
are always smaller than they should be for their age when they go home. To increase weight, they often need special transitional formulas (with higher calories) or added powdered formula if they are taking breast milk. The most common transitional formulas are Enfacare or Neosure. It is very important to mix the formula as instructed. Your premature infant should stay on infant formula
until he is a year old from his expected birth date. This helps his bones develop properly. Your premature baby may develop slower than a full-term baby. This is to be expected, it may take up to two years to catch up with children who were born on their expected birth date. Premature babies may benefit from intervention services such as physical, occupational, speech therapy
, or developmental therapy during the first couple of years. Wish your child good health.
