My baby is 25 days old and he was born underweight. I could not BF him due to allergenic problems.
Am using Similac Neosure now, but he is not having a regular poo.
So any recommendations for a better FM?

I used Similac for my preemie as a replacement for BM and I think it helped with weight gain. How often are you feeding? I had to feed every 2 to 3 hours, maybe add an extra feeding. As for the pooping, my preemie had difficulty with this also, I was told by my doctor to give her prune juice in her feedings. I also had to give my preemie Poly-Vi-Sol, it is a multivitamin supplement drops. I don't know if this helped but if you are super concerned about it, you may just want to consult your doctor.
