    hi waiwaiber

    You can approached dr barbara lam who worked as the head of QM NICU for 10+ years. She may be able to help you with getting fortifiers (sometimes free of charge if she gets samples, sometimes not). You can also see if it's appropriate for your baby to take Polycal which is a high energy power for underweight babies.

    Feeding a premature baby is usually even harder than feeding normal term babies as they were intubed for quite some while and this may irritate their throat and senses. But every baby is different. For my baby (who is now 14 mths old actual), it's been a battle everyday to feed him, and we have to come up with different tactics all the time. Hope your baby loves eating!

    Agree with jormankiu, see dr. barbara lam. she specializes in premature babies and will help you with your baby. We didn't see her after we left the hospital (we saw her there as a consultant) but know of many other parents who continues with her and are very happy with her.

    Just to let you know, inquire about her costs upfront since i've heard she is quite expensive.
