My baby was premature and spent time in NICU. How can I help her feeding progress?
An important piece for settling good growth for newborns is establishing colonies of beneficial microflora (bacteria) in the gut. This helps babies digest food, and helps the immune system as well. Be sure to use formula or feedings that are not inflammatory, and consider probiotics to help your baby’s intestine acquire healthy bacterial colonies. Nutrition Care For Children is experienced in supplementing infants safely with probiotics. Using these correctly can also prevent necrotizing enterocolitis in premature infants.
