‘Mother’s own milk’ for premature infants: Minority mothers need effective strategies

For premature infants who can’t breastfeed on their own, “mother’s own milk” (MOM) is by far the best nutrition. There’s an urgent need for effective ways to increase the relatively low rates of MOM feeding for preterm infants born to Black and Hispanic mothers. But so far, research has offered little or no specific guidance, concludes an evidence-based review in Advances in Neonatal Care, official journal of the National Association of Neonatal Nurses. The journal is published in the Lippincott portfolio by Wolters Kluwer.
