Enteral nutrition is essential for preterm infants’ growth and development. Breast milk is the best primary source of nutrition for newborn infants since breast milk consists of basic essential nutrients, immunoglobulin and growth factor. However, for the mothers who deliver preterm babies, the composition of breast milk is changed over time and the value of nutrition and mineral are not sufficient for growing preterm infants. Also, clinicians should know the best practices for handling and administering of expressed breast milk and fortification to avoid contamination or infection.

In this Webinar, Participants will learn not only the profile of nutrition composition, but also how to optimize the enteral nutrition in preterm infants to avoid complications. Participants will also learn to prepare expressed breast milk and fortification.
