Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary33 good for preemies
My son was born six weeks prematurely and spent seventeen days in the nicu. This is the formula he used there. It really helped him gain weight and grow at a good rate. The only thing I do not like is it makes him gassy and constipated. Overall it is great for babies that need that little extra to grow.

With a baby born 8 weeks early, NeoSure has given my girl the additional calories she needs to grow bigger and stronger every day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Breezy Great product, less than great options
My son was born at 33 weeks because I had HELLP and it was putting both of us in danger. His stomach was not developing in utero, so the hospital had him on a combination of donor milk and Neosure to boost to 26 calories. He started at 2 pounds 13 ounces and at 9 months now, he is almost 20 pounds. He's been on the standard growth chart for several months which his doctor was dancing over. (We were all shocked and continue to be amazed at his progression and lack of certain issues that were possible.)
Our biggest issue has been affordability and convenience. We buy the formula by the case and he drinks up to 2 cases a month along with solid food. It is disappointing that we have a fairly "common" specialty issue and since we qualify for nothing and insurance only allows for specialty formula until 6 months we are now spending $250 a month on formula. It wouldn't be so painful if I could buy a case of larger containers as we wouldn't run out between shipments as often and have to buy a lone can for $19. Don't get me wrong, we tried the other brand and have decided we like this one better and it is worth it for him to be healthy, but we also don't want to have to take out a second mortgage because we are tired new parents that need to stay hyper focused on every part of our sons life while both of us are working 40 hour work weeks and coordinating his appointments to keep his progress as steady as possible. We lose focus sometimes which means no coupons and another normal grocery bill's worth of formula per month. I would think a major benefit for everyone involved would be to do large containers. It doesn't take up any extra shelf space as no store stocks more than 2 cans at a time anyway. Although I've written a novel about this, it really is the best problem to have for a product and I hope that at the least Neosure stays available for those that need it even if it remains in smaller cans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ashlee0519 Twins love this stuff
My twins were born at 32 weeks. When they were in the NICU they were given Similac NeoSure after my breast milk ran out. They love this stuff and they are gaining weight like crazy. They left the NICU at under 4 pounds and today my boy is a healthy 11 pounds 14 oz and my girl is 9 pounds 9 oz at 4 months. Thank you for making a product that helps with Preemies. The only complaint that I have is that it does not come in a bigger size. I would really like to have this in the tubs. When you are feeding twins you go through a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lana Very effective!
My baby was born at 33 weeks and stayed 30 days in the NICU. We fortified my breast milk with this to make it 24 cal feedings. She is now 15.5 lbs at 4 months and 25 inches in length. The doctor re-weighed her at her check up because he was in shock. This helped my daughter reach 86 percentile of a full term baby at her age! Thank you!
