Session Number: 4070
Date: Fri, Mar 2nd, 2018
Time: 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Description:

Premature infants are often pre-disposed to feeding difficulties during their NICU stay and upon discharge. Early feeding intervention including handling/positive touch, auditory/olfactory/oral stimulation, non-nutritive suck, early introduction of milk (taste trials) followed by use of a cue based feeding program can lead to improved outcomes.
