J....

They had put Katlyne on fortifier that was mixed with BMilk. It was a little thicker and she gained the weight quickly....

Just wanted to add that we had Maggie on fortified formula mixed with breast milk for the first 2 months after she came home from the NICU. She was on it in the hospital, but her ped REALLY wanted to keep her on it for a couple of months after she was home. It worked wonders with her -- she plumped up in no time! It wasn't a prescription or anything, we just bought it at the grocery store (but it was a bit more expensive than regular calorie formula). You should see what your doc says about it.
