My daughter 2 months old premature baby. At the time of born her weight was 1kilo 350 grams. Now her weight is 2 kilo 850 grams. I noticed that her weight is not gaining properly. My pediatrician recommend Nestle prenan powder, Rap grow and MCT oil drops for weight gain.

You can continue wd Pre Nan formula as per instructions. Also try to feed expressed breast milk by spoon. Mother shud continue to express her milk and store in refrigerator and feed with spoon from time to time. Later as he grows the child can also be put on the breast and encourage mother to feed.

Hello, Try and feed her mothers milk as that will make her gain proportionately and also strengthen her immune system. Premature babies ,specially are more prone to infections and mothers milk will ensure she gain weight properly and also keep her infection free. Breast fed babies are infection free and active.Most of commercial baby products are loaded with sugar ,with little nutritional benefits.
