Similac Expert Care® NeoSure®

Promotes catch-up growth during your premature baby’s first 12 months

Your premature baby might have arrived early, but she’s here now and it’s an exciting time. At home or in the hospital, your voice, your touch, and your care mean the world to her.

Because she didn’t get the full 9 months in the womb, her body is working hard to catch up. Help support her development in the first full year by feeding her Similac Expert Care NeoSure, the #1-selling baby formula for babies who were born prematurely.

Similac Expert Care NeoSure is the only preterm formula with added Lutein for eye and brain development.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for Preemies! My little girl was born at 36 weeks and 4 days. The hospital lactation consultants gave me NeoSure to supplement my breastfeeding, since I am not producing enough milk on my own. It has been a great complement to breastfeeding. July 24, 2015
