Breast Milk is Best for Premature Babies

  • Description

Babies born very early usually need to stay in the neonatal intensive care unit. The best food to give your baby is your breast milk. At first your baby may not be strong enough to breastfeed, but you can use a breast pump to collect all the milk your baby needs. Babies can get breast milk from a cotton swab, through a feeding tube that goes from the nose or mouth into the stomach, or from a bottle.
