Focus and purpose

Infant feeding is an important part of the experience of families whose infant requires admission to a neonatal unit. Successful establishment of feeding is affected by various factors, such as maternal conditions, prematurity, neurological impairment, congenital abnormalities, or surgery. Neonatal nurses and neonatal lactation consultants can provide care and education that optimise feeding outcomes. This SIG will recommend resources relating to infant feeding, present learning opportunities, and provide peer support and guidance.
