Dr. Donna Wilkins answered
45 years experience Neonatology
Feeding preemies: Preemies, whether they are twins or not often have feeding problems. It is typically not recommended to try to breast or botttle feed until their gestational age is about 34 corrected weeks since their neuological maturity is not developed well enough to suck, swallow and breathe in a coordinated manner until then. They may have some oral aversion if they have been on a ventilator a long period.
