Navigating Pathways to Breastfeeding Success in the Late Preterm Infant
Breastfeeding the late preterm newborn (34 0/7 to 36 6/7 weeks) presents unique challenges that differ from that of a health full term baby. By nature of their immaturity, late preterm infants are at higher risk for developing jaundice, hypoglycemia, falling sleeping during feedings, and being difficulty to wake. Unfortunately, this also puts them at a greater risk for formula supplementation, despite a family’s desire for exclusive breastfeeding. This presentation will help to illustrate the challenges in breastfeeding the late preterm infant, and techniques for preserving exclusivity in the hospital and post discharge.
