My DD was born at 33 weeks and was 3lbs 7oz. She dropped down to 2lbs 2 oz at her smallest. She was in the NICU for 31 days and I tried my darndest to bf with her but she wanted no part of it. We got her on the Neosure and while she did okay, it seemed to be too rich for her system. She would constantly spit up. Even now at 11 months she only weights 19lbs. Even now if we give here more than about 6oz of formula she spits up all over us. Sounds like your little man is doing well.
