Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Premature children are prone for anemia because of less transfer of nutrients like iron, folic acid, and vitamin B12 as they born prematurely.

It is known as anemia of prematurity.

But the other causes like hemolytic, deficiency anemia to be ruled out by appropriate investigations.

I advise you to continue the medication as prescribed by the doctor and do investigations if necessary.

Hope I have answered your query.
