Helping Premature Babies Learn to Breastfeed: We Can Do It!
Learning to breastfeed is the optimal and ideal method of feeding for any baby. For the baby born prematurely, however, there are factors related to the infant, to the environment and to the mother that can make this process more challenging. Many mother-baby dyads often leave the NICU not fully breastfeeding and continue to struggle once at home. This presentation will describe systematic, evidence based approaches to developing breastfeeding in the premature infant. It will review developmental and co-morbid factors affecting the infant’s feeding acquisition. A model pathway to develop breastfeeding will be outlined and this can serve as a template for varying NICU’s.
