Good evening. Please my baby is 2-day old premature baby

Good evening. Please my baby is 2-day old premature baby (32 weeks). I went to my doctor today and I was told that his hb is 8.5 and low so needs blood transfusion. My questions are:
1. What is his minimum hb requirement?
2. Is blood transfusion the only option? If no, what are the other options available?
Thank you and congratulations for the good work you're doing.

We have baby girl 55 days old who is premature baby and her weight is 2kg in birth. Now her weight is increased to 2.550. Breast milk is not enough for my baby. We would like to try with diluted cow milk (1:1 dilution). I want to know whether cow milk is good or formulated milk powder (pre nan ) is good.
