Feeding is a primary concern for families of extremely preterm (EP) infants following discharge from neonatal care. An increasing number of EP children are being referred for treatment of feeding problems, including eating only a few types of food or very small portions, difficulty transitioning to textured foods, and refusing food. These issues have the potential for significant consequences for the children's growth and development as well as their family's well-being. An understanding of the kinds of feeding problems faced by families of EP infants can help nurses guide families to be ready for and respond to these issues. In this article, the evidence for and the nature of feeding problems in EP children after discharge from neonatal care are examined.
