Rated 5 out of 5 by PreemieDad Great for helping our preemie gain weight
Our baby was born about 1 month early and initially did well with breast feeding for the first week. However, later in the first month he was struggling to grow and had hardly gained any weight from breast feeding. We began supplementing breast feeding with Similac NeoSure and immediately our preemie began to gain weight again and within one week had put on over a pound and was looking much more healthy and was back on track.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Great product but very expensive
I had my daughter at 33 weeks due to preeclampsia, she was in the NICU for 3 weeks and was eating breast milk fortified with Neosure. My milk has now dried out and she is on straight Neosure. She's a growing girl and the formula sure is burning a hole in our pockets. We do not qualify for any sort of assistance. As far as tummy issues, she is quite gassy but only experienced 1 day of constipation the first day she had straight formula.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TripletDaddy Good for weight gain, burning a hole in my pocket.
My wife gave birth to triplets at 32 weeks. Their weights were 2lb 9oz, 3lb 5oz, and 3lb 7oz. They spent a month in the nicu being fed breast milk fortified with neosure. Now that they are home we are pretty much giving them nothing but neosure. My wife is just unable to produce enough breast milk for the 3 of them. We love the product because they have had significant weight gain. But it just seems with the high cost of the product and the absence of an economy size, pretty soon I'm going to loose the ability to pay, don't know if we can keep it up for a whole year. We're just an average middle class family, who are not eligible for any government assistance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Harmony86 Makes baby supper fussy/gassy and constipated
My twins were born at 31 weeks 3lbs and 2 lbs the doctor prescribed neosure so they could gain weight they're gaining weight pretty steady but the constipation is what I can not handle when my babies finally do have a bowel movement they are screaming murder. Even though my kids pediatrician won't change their formula I now refuse to give it to them. This problem needs to be fixed

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smileymas257 Great for weight gain but has issues
My twins were born at 31 weeks. They spent 34 days in the NICU. They were getting very little breastmilk since I couldn't produce that much so they were also getting the neosure. They boys weighed 3 lbs 11 ounces and 3 lbs 8.5 ounces when the were born. Day of discharge they weight 5 lbs 11 ounces and 5 lbs 8 ounces. Neosure was great with putting on the weight. The formula does cause a lot of gas which makes the boys a little uncomfortable. Now that the boys are discharged they are still on the neosure. The problems that I have found is that it cause a lot of gas that is sometimes hard to get rid of and it is very expensive and they only make 13.1 ounce cans. It is getting very expensive to feed t2 babies daily with it. Similac needs to look into producing bigger cans or maybe give an option to be able to call Similac and order bigger cans. That would make it a lot easier for parents with multiple children that use this formula. Our pediatrician wants the boys to be on this formula for atleast 4 months but I don't think I can afford it. I am not eligible for any type of assistance either. I would recommend this formula for babies with low birth weight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Amosburn Excellent for Weight Gain
I had my twins at 25wks. They only weighed 1lb 13oz and 1 lb 7oz. They spent 3 months in the NICU. During their stay they were getting their breast milk fortified with Neosure. They came home at 5lbs and 4lbs! They are now just getting Neosure formula no breast milk. I highly recommend this formula for weight gain. The only negative is the gas and fussiness. I Would recommend this formula to all preemie baby moms.
Please look into Neosure for sensitive tummy's. Also possibly coupons for this product. Double the babies Double the cost!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Amosburn Great for weight Gain Horrible for Tummy
My twins were born at 25wks. They spent 3 months in the NICU. First they were just getting fortified breast milk which worked very well. Now my supply has went down so they just get the Neosure formula every feeding. It's been about a week and the babies are miserable. They have horrible gas and are so fussy from being constipated. On top of them having belly issues the cost of the formula is outrageous especially when buying for two. I would recommend this formula for any preemie baby just watch how much #2 they are producing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Great for my daughter, no problems but..
Hi, I had my first child at 30 weeks (measuring 26 weeks) weighing only 1lb 14oz due to me having severe preeclampsia. My daughter had to stay in the NICU for 56 days at Levines hospital in Charlotte NC and they prescribed her to be on similac neosure! It was worked great for her so far, she does get a little gassy sometimes but nothing unusual or painful for her. She is now 4 months old weighing 9 pounds! The only problem that we have been having is the price of her formula. I am a stay at home mom with no government help (wic, food stamps etc..) so now that she is getting bigger and eating more it has really burned a hole in our pocket. The doctor reccommended her being on it till she's a year old. Is there any free samples or coupons to help me afford my daughters neosure formula?
