Preemie Discharge Formulas. Before premature or low-birth-weight babies are discharged from the hospital, they are typically changed to a preemie discharge formula. These include products like Similac Neosure, Enfamil Enfacare, and Cow & Gate Nutriprem 2.
Preemie formula and HMF have more calories, protein, vitamins, and minerals than regular baby formula or breast milk, and are designed to help babies grow faster. Common brands of preemie formula include NeoSure (by the makers of Similac), EnfaCare (an Enfamil product), and Nutriprem 2 (by Cow & Gate).
When your baby arrives prematurely, extra nutrition support may be needed. Fortunately, Similac® offers mothers a milk-based preemie formula.
