We were on the SMA equivalent of Nutriprem and I was advised until 6 months corrected age.

I changed at 6 months corrected because that’s what I was advised when we first started the formula. Just changed to normal SMA and it seems fine. I’ve used the regular pre-made liquid SMA before 6 months corrected on the odd occasion when I was driving long distances and needed to feed baby as I didn’t want to faff with warming or cooling formula. He fed the same as always.

My understanding is that the prem baby formula is higher calorie and has a higher protein content than regular formula but should otherwise be the same.
