The Mother Canguroo Method has shown to be most effective for a proper care of premature infants. Initiate immediately breast milk pumping every 3 hours. Lying on weight and gestational age (sucking capacity) offer the breast directly or feed through a syringe or a feeding tube. Do not allow the infant to get tired or wasted by a poor sucking: supplement with own mother’s expressed milk after 15 minutes of sucking.
We do not have alternatives for Premature Infant since it is relatively safe.
Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM team of health professionals, and are based on updated scientific publications. It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it.
