Brief description Breast milk is the best food for babies born prematurely. There are challenges for women in providing breast milk and challenges for clinicians in managing the feeds of preterm babies, including when to start feeds and how quickly to progress. Sometimes research evidence doesn’t translate into practice and in this project I will support clinicians to implement the best evidence so that more preterm babies are receiving breast milk on discharge home.
