Free Resource: NICU Nurturing and Nutrition

NICU nutritionThis month Hand to Hold is proud to release a comprehensive FREE resource to the NICU community, courtesy of Prolacta Bioscience®. Our latest free resource, NICU Nurturing and Nutrition, was developed for parents currently in the NICU who may have questions about how to meet their medically fragile baby’s nutritional needs. This resource is available to parents and medical professionals at no cost.

NICU Nurturing and Nutrition covers several key areas of feeding:

  • The special mom/baby connection
  • Reading your baby’s feeding cues
  • Your breast milk
  • Donor breast milk
  • Human milk fortification
  • Pumping
  • If pumping or donor milk is not available

To take advantage of this free resource, download Nurturing and Nutrition in the NICU. The link will open in a new window, where you can right click and save to your computer.
