We are on our last tub of nutri prem 2 and so what next?
With my older child who was full term, I went straight onto cows milk, didn't even contemplate follow on formula

Shall I do this with my prem or should I go onto follow on for extra calories and vitamins??

She eats 3 goodish meals aday and although only between 2nd and 9th centile her growth has been very consistent, what do you think? What did you do with your little ones?

I don't plan on using follow on milk with my prem babies, we will go straight onto cows milk. If she is eating well and if her weight is stable I wouldn't.

Do you see a pediatrician for check ups that you could ask?

How old is she? If she is still prescribed nutri-prem I would guess she needs to stay on it for the calories. DTs were taken off it and onto normal stage 1 formula at 10months actual / 8 corrected, and then on to cow's milk at 1.
