Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Breast milk intake is recommended for late preterm infants. Many mothers provide expressed breast milk during hospitalization and anticipate transitioning their late preterm infant to full feedings at-breast after discharge. However, some infants take months to transition to full feedings at-breast. This article describes the case of a mother and her 35-week infant who transitioned to full feeding at-breast at 4 months after discharge. The clinical strategies to maintain maternal milk supply, use of hospital-grade scale, and importance of professional and community lactation support are discussed.
