Feeding Skills and NNS
Feeding Skills in the Preterm Infant:
"Suck is a relatively mature ororhythmic motor behavior in a full-term infant and is integral to competent oral feeds."
Oromotoer Stimulation for Transition from Gavage to Full Oral Feeding:
"Oromotor stimulation along with routine care reduces the duration of gavage feeding in preterm neonates."
Oromotor Feeding in Children Born Before 30 Weeks' Gestation:
"Surveillance and support of oromotor feeding skills for very preterm children is indicated, particularly during their transition to solid foods."
