Premature and low-birth-weight babies
These formulas are based on cow’s milk and contain more calories than other formulas. These formulas are fortified with proteins, calcium, vitamins, and minerals to provide the premature baby’s needs. These formulas should be used only after consulting with your doctor.
In formulas for premature babies, the properties of the fat and the minerals that are added are different from those in regular formulas and are designed especially to allow the premature baby to grow and develop so he will catch up with babies born after a full-term pregnancy. The formulas are divided into the first formula, that is given at the neonatal intensive care unit and the first weeks and other formulas that are given in the following months until the baby’s first birthday.
