Premature babies and babies with breathing or digestive problems might need helping with their feeding. This video shows parenteral nutrition, nasogastric tube feeding and the importance of breast milk for babies in the neonatal unit.
Lucy, a premature baby, is given milk through her nasogastric tube by her dad. Francesca’s mum and dad talk about how she was born premature, the worries they had and how well she is doing now. Babies in the neonatal unit receive feeding support from a team of consultants, nurses, pharmacists and breastfeeding support.
