New Resource for Mothers of Late Preterms
According to the March of Dimes, more than 70 % of premature babies are born between 34 and 36 weeks gestation. These “late preterm” infants often may look like many full-term babies, yet they may face significant challenges – many directly related to feeding. Medela’s new 20-page easy-read guide will help mothers better understand how to overcome developmental challenges that may impact breastfeeding. The guide also offers three actual “mother’s stories” including motivational images. These personal stories detail how mothers have overcome late preterm specific challenges to successfully breastfeed their children. The guide details feeding strategies and how to maintain mother’s milk supply both in the hospital and at home.
