Doctor tells me my baby needs this to grow , she was 11 weeks premature and weighs 1.1 kg at 13 days old now. Does anybody know of any reasons why I shouldn't let them ?

My 4 month old spent a month in the hospital after having open heart surgery at 9 days old. They fortified my breastmilk and the only problem he ended up having is diarrhea. Give it a try and they will stop it if they come across any issues.

Let them fortify it, it helps a ton. I had a 24 weeker and they fortified my breastmilk for a while and it helps them catch up some
