How long should dexolac special care formula be continued?

Hi Dr., my daughter was born at 1.8 kg. so we are advised to give dexolac special care which is specially for low birth weight. now she is 2 mnths old and her weight is 3.5. so we can change the powder or can continue the same low birth weight powder itself upto 6 mnths.

You can switch to other formula feeds like nanpro. Consult a paediatrician and he will direct you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
