Abstract/OtherAbstract:
HUMAN MILK HAS THE greatest impact on costly short-term morbidities during the very early postbirth period.1 Although the health benefits of breast milk for all infants is undeniable, assisting new mothers as they breastfeed in the NICU can present various challenges. It can be days, weeks, or even months before the mothers of some NICU infants are able to put their baby to their breast for the first time. Often, these babies have been fed expressed breast milk through gavage feedings.
