Hi! We didn't do Elecare, but we did do Enfamil preemie, high calorie. Why? I stopped producing. I didn't get angry, I got more upset that I couldn't help my child. If my child is in the NICU she is already extremely fragile. If my breast milk is putting her in distress, I would be more than willing and happy to take DR's suggestion and try it. For me, the pain/anger, was stemming from me not being able to do my job as a mother and produce. I too, didn't want formula or anyone else forcing decisions on my child and I, however, I'm no Dr. I need to do what's best for my child--Whether I like it or not.
You're doing great! Sounds like your child will be, too! Keep us updated, I'm curious to see if it worked with the puffy tummy. Liz
