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.
Specially formulated to support your preemie’s development
We know that your premature baby needs special care in her first year — including specialized nutrition.
More research has been published on Similac Expert Care NeoSure than on any other nutrient-enriched, preterm, post-discharge formula.1-4 Studies have shown that premature babies fed Similac Expert Care NeoSure as compared to term infant formula for the first full year showed:
- Excellent catch-up growth1
- Improved language development*†
- Improved visual development*‡
|UNIQUE NUTRITIONAL NEEDS OF PREMATURE AND LOW-BIRTH-WEIGHT INFANTS|
Your Premature Baby Might Need:
Similac Expert Care NeoSure has:
Extra nutrients to help her catch up, as the 3rd trimester of pregnancy is the period of most rapid growth
|Support for eye and brain development, as the majority of this growth takes place in the last eight weeks in the womb|
|Immune support to help her immune system grow strong|
|Nutrients for bone growth because most babies triple their bone density during the first year|
