help needed nutriprem 2
anyone had a baby on nutriprem 2? the twins are on nutriprem 2 and was originally told they would be on it until 6 months corrected age, but speaking to someone who was on transitional care with me and she was told by the consultant that babies are on it until they have caught up with their weight and are showing a good steady weight gain. has anyones babies come off nutriprem 2 earlier than 6 months corrected age? also i am finding that one twin is hungry a lot and sometimes will only go 1-2 hours between feeds, i have tried increasing the ammount of milk offered but she will not take anymore than 2and a half to 3 oz per feed has anyone had any similar issues? or any advive
She also would not take more than 3ozs or so as she suffered from reflux as a result of being prem. This meant feeding was very uncomfortable as she was sicking up a lot and the acid from her tummy was burning ther throat. This was evetually fixed with various meds sorted out form the paeds at the hospital.
I just used to have to go with small and frequent feeds until she reached an age where her reflux was under control and she could cope with larger feeds, at about 7 months or so once weaned.
I think my docs would have prescribed NP2 until 12 months maximum corrected age if required for weight. Using NP2 also meant that I didn't need to give her extra vits and iron as they are all in NP2, but not at such high levels in normal formula.
