preterm formula at discharge

Recommended Posts



i'd apreciate to know when do you use preterm formula at discharge in babies with no breast milk

  • Do you use it either in late preterms and term sga newborns?
  • When do you begin to use term formulas? At which weight?

Thanks for your help

Our dietician often suggests that we should use preterm formula "some time" after 40 weeks corrected age, in the more preterm born babies (typically <28 weeks)

In practical terms we usually switch over to regular formula at the first follow.up visit, i.e. usually at 3 months corrected age.
