In brief: Slowly
Depending on how premature they are, premies may receive their initial feeds through a nasogastric tube.
Receiving pumped breast milk instead of formula is helpful for preventing infections and intestinal complications of prematurity. As the suck-swallow coordination matures, they learn to breast feed and bottle feed.
