Best Medicine: Human Milk in the NICU

Best Medicine: Human Milk in the NICU
As reflected throughout this book, current research confirms that human milk is important for the preterm infant in regards to host defense, gastrointestinal development, special nutrition, and neurodevelopmental outcome. Some of the topics discussed by the authors include:
  • Use of human milk and the support of breastfeeding for the premature infant and for all NICU infants.
  • The "why" and the "how" health care providers can take full advantage of human milk.
  • Evidence that will empower mothers of NICU infants to access needed assistance.
  • Nutritional goals for preterm infants.
  • Challenges of human milk for preterm infants.
  • Managing breastfeeding in the NICU.
