Enteral nutrition of the premature infant
Su Jin Cho
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(1):7-13.   Published online January 15, 2010
Early nutritional support for preterm infants is critical because such support influences long-term outcome. Minimal enteral feeding should be initiated as soon as possible if an infant is stable and if feeding advancement is recommended as relevant to the clinical course. Maternal milk is the gold standard for enteral feeding, but fortification may be needed to achieve optimal growth in...
