How long on Neosure or Enfacare?

If you ff, how long did/will your baby stay on formula for preemies, such as Neosure or Enfacare?

Re: How long on Neosure or Enfacare?

My son is partially BF and partially FF (low supply). He is 10 months and still getting neosure. He is slowly catching up (moving up the charts), but still is on the small side, so I'll keep it up probably until his due date. Then I will start the transition to a toddler formula/milk.

The twins I took care of who were preemies back in 2000 were on it till they were 11 months old. Then they switched to soy before going to cows milk. The mother was a ped.

Mine were on it till 11 mo. Our neonatologists say to first birthday, my pedi says until they are on the chart for their actual age. Its obvious my two may never be on the chart so we just switched.

One of our neonatologists said 6 months, one said 9 months, and our ped said 12 months... so I have no idea when to stop it!

We switched at about 9 months. They were gaining well and starting solids so their pediatrician and I felt it was safe to transition at that time.
