i remember tiktok talking about BM fortifiers on another thread a long while ago now and it would be great to learn more (know of a mum with a very young prem who is producing more than adequate volumes of BM but they are still supplementing with prem formula as it is more calorie dense than the bm apparently hmm).

Who knows and can tell me about fortifiers, what they are, how they are used and benefits over and above normal prem formula.

I think in brief, there is good evidence for faster rates of growth in infants given fortifier HTH
