Rated 5 out of 5 by TwinMommy16 Highly recommended
My twin girls were born at 33 weeks and 5 days. At birth, they weighed 3lbs 8oz and 3 lbs 13 oz. They were in the NICU for 18 days where they received the NeoSure formula fortified with breast milk. After being discharged, they are strictly on the NeoSure formula. At almost 3 months, they have doubled in weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mamajo311985 Great for weight gain
My son was born at 36 weeks had jaundice and low weight gain .i had him on enfamil newborn and his weight kept decreasing doctor put him on this formula and within 24 hours his weight started going up and his jaundice went down after each bowel movement. Only bad thing is it makes him somewhat constipated but if i give him some breast milk it helps him go easier.im happy with this product better than Enfamil! THANK YOU SIMILAC.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AmyInMN Excellent for purpose(s) intended, but rough on baby's stomach!
My son was born at 34 1/2 weeks and 4 lbs 13 oz. He was given breast milk while in the hospital (for 12 days) and switched over to NeoSure upon discharge (when he weighed 5 lbs 2 oz.). Around two weeks later, I increased his formula gradually from 2 oz. per feeding. He is growing like a weed and looked like a normal term baby at 7 1/2 lbs on his gestational due date. However, when I increased his formula from 2 oz. is when I started to notice the significant discomfort he was having with every feeding. Now, he starts to get gassy and very uncomfortable even while I am still feeding him and he is gassy all the way through until I feed him again 3-4 hours later. It's awful to watch his little body contort, his legs high in the air, and his face get red and scrunched up (with some crying when he lies down). When he burps, his face shows how it clearly tastes awful (and maybe hurts coming up?). Even more concerning is when he spits up 1-2 hours after a feeding when he is lying on his back, which causes concern that he will aspirate fluid into his lungs. I am not sure what to do since the pediatrician wants him on this formula, but it clearly doesn't agree with him. NeoSure is fantastic for promoting the growth we want for our preemies, but it would be great if it didn't cause so much GI discomfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KGarci203 Great product!
My son was born at 29 weeks. At his 4 month appointment the doctor was shocked to see his growth! My son was in the 99 percentile for growth. Needless to say he is no longer categorized as a premie. The 46 day journey in the NICU is far behind us and my little boy is one healthy baby. The only thing I wish is that Neosure would be more accessible for us locally but the product itself is fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HDavis63 This formula is great for weight gain!
My preemie was born at 28 weeks, and since coming home she has been exclusively fed neosure. She has gained almost a pound a week! The doctors are very happy with how fast she is catching up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lindseyhtx Definitely Recomend
My baby was born at 36 weeks weighing 5 lbs 14 oz. Despite help from many wonderful lactation nurses at the hospital, I struggled to breastfeed him. The pediatrician at the hospital recommended Neosure and now, 3 weeks later, I am able to breastfeed some, but we supplement with Neosure.
I like that he is always full with this formula. When I nurse, he wakes up more often wanting to eat so this has really helped with nighttime feelings.
I do agree with other reviews, he is very gassy and it takes longer to burp him, but he is gaining weight at a great pace!
One other comment, I like the flexibility of being able to nurse him and bottlefeed him. Using formula allows my husband to share in the bonding process of feeding our baby and also gives me a break. If we didn't have Neosure as an option, I wouldn't feel comfortable, but because this is a specialized formula, I am. And we continue to get positive feedback on his progression from our pediatrician, I'm relieved for the chance to have extra sleep!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Blessed01 Excellent weight gainer but very gassy
My son was born 34 weeks and 4.5 lbs. He started on neosure when he came home from the hospital 6 weeks later. Neosure is amazing for premises! Would not give my son anything else. He is gaining more weight than the doctors expected. Only downside is he is VERY gassy. Everyone commented on it when they visisted. He started getting constipated weekly at 2 months. Now that he is 3 months old and over 11 lbs, I am mixing 50% neosure with 50% total comfort (purple). He is 75% less gassy and no longer constipated.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Deozier2016 Good for weigh gain, bad for baby tummy
My baby born at 31 weeks and spent 2 months in the hospital. She was born 3lbs 5oz. She did grow a lot with this product, but had stomach problems the whole time. She receive mostly breastfeeding milk and 2 feedings of Neosure daily. She is very fussy and spits up a lot on this product. I have tried the Sensitive formula and she does well. I'm not willing to watch her suffer for weigh gain, because she has been through so much already.
