In brief: Pump breast milk

Infants can be given breast milk with a bottle or through a nasogastric tube.
The breast milk should be fortified if it is a premature infant. If the infant is mature enough to suck, mom can nurse in the nicu if the infant is stable.

In brief: With some constraint

Some nikki babies can't tolerate feeding directly because of the calories are burned while they are trying to gain weight.
Moms and dads are always offered the ability to feed feeding newborn in the unit that is allowed to bottle expressed breastmilk. They also do you have breast-feeding rooms in most units, when your child is allowed to you can directly breast-feed.
