Abstract

Four low-birth-weight babies, though fed an adequate amount of formula, failed to regain their birth weight within ten days. Blood gas studies revealed metabolic acidosis in all. Their body weight gain improved dramatically after adding sodium bicarbonate to the milk. Late metabolic acidosis was presented, even using special premature formula, in three of them.
