With the terrible shortage of formula right now and many shopping around to find alternatives, please also make sure you're informed about necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in premature babies.
Certain brands of infant formula, including Similac and Enfamil, use cow’s milk as their base. While premature and underweight infants might need supplemental formula, giving them these types of formula can cause them to develop necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). The condition causes intestinal tissue to die. It can also cause a hole in the intestine. Bacteria can leak through this hole, causing serious abdominal infections. Some infants will need surgery to remove the damaged intestine, and to some, it could be fatal.
