If infant is premature, do we use chronological age or adjusted age for the maximum amounts of formula per month? Will solid foods be delayed for premature infants?
Response: Use chronological age. Foods are being delayed until 6 months now. If the doctor writes a prescription and indicates that you should omit infant foods, then you would delay these foods. If the infant is not on a special formula, but says the doctor has told her not to introduce infant foods yet, you can refuse the food item for the appropriate months.
