Premature Birth

A birth that occurs before the 37th week of pregnancy is considered to be premature. Although researchers have long sought a way to prevent premature births, there are a number of known risks associated with early delivery. These include multiple foetuses, a weak cervix, a difficult pregnancy, foetal abnormalities, infections and other health problems. Certain maternal behaviours, including smoking, drug use, and alcohol consumption, are also known to increase the likelihood of premature birth. Doctors often advise pregnant women to avoid prolonged standing or lifting in order to have a better chance of carrying their babies to term.

Burping a premature baby
Sitting your baby up and rubbing his or her back will help to wake the baby up. This is also the best way to burp, since you can see your baby's face. Burp your baby half way through the feed and then again at the end of the feed.

The Haberman Feeder has become an essential medical tool that is widely used for a variety of feeding difficulties, including cleft lip /cleft palate. Controls feed delivery, reduces wind, vomiting, colic and encourages normal sucking action.

Below you will find links to the most useful information on premature babies, that I feel the web has to offer. If you find any broken links or would like to suggest a link be added please email me via the contact us page.
