Breastfeeding the low-birthweight infant.

PMID:  2250639     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Human milk remains an important nutritional source for the low-birthweight infant, although supplementation may be necessary. Information on breast pumping, milk collection and storage, and breastfeeding techniques will help the new mother facilitate human milk feeding for her low-birthweight infant. Providing a supportive environment for the new mother to establish lactation at a time when her infant remains hospitalized is a challenge for the neonatal nurse.
