I am wondering how long babies who are discharged on high calorie formulas (enfacare, neosure, etc) stay on those? Has anyone who was discharged on a HCF, switched and if so, why did you switch and what did you switch to?
My LO was born at 27 weeks and came home on Christmas eve. He gets half breast milk and half enfacare in every bottle. Recently he was diagnosed with reflux. He has been on prevacid for about 2 weeks now, and while he has stopped vomiting, he is still fussy when eating and sometimes still refuses to eat. I had been thinking that he might have an allergy, especially since he has been very congested and also has a red ring around his anus (which I have read can be a sign of an allergy). My pedi hasn't really taken my concerns about a possible milk allergy seriously, so I'm considering taking matters into my own hands and trying him on a soy formula. I'm just not sure since I definitely think he needs the higher calories, but i'm also thinking that a high calorie formula isn't doing much good if he is refusing to eat it!
