My pedi says we can switch to nonpremie formula (Similac Sensitive), and the girls are certainly caught up on size, but I'm wondering what the point is of switching?
They've been on neosure this whole time, it works great. Why would I switch them to Sensitive? why wouldn't I just keep them on neosure?
My 31 weeker switched to regular formula at around 10 months. My dr.s reasoning was because he was caught up to his peers weight wise. Continuing with the neosure would have continued the weight gain and being too heavy can be a bad thing.
Now at almost 2 years old he's at the 2 % for weight and drinks pediasure everyday. He's a tiny little thing now! I wish we would have kept him on the neosure for longer and supplemented with pediasure once he was on whole milk. He's still in 12 month pants and will be 2 in feb!
My son's doctor put him straight on /Similac sensitive and Vit D. He had acid reflux so he was on zantic and the pediatrics said he didn't want to change him again at the same time my son was a late term preemie.
