Care of Small Babies: Providing the Right Volume of Milk

Video summary

Almost all small babies need to be supplemented by cup or feeding tube to gain weight well until they reach 2500 grams. The baby needs a gradually increasing volume of milk for best growth. This video shows how to determine the volume of milk a baby should receive over time by feeding tube or cup.

Global Health Media Project’s Small Baby Series includes 27 teaching videos, providing in-depth coverage on best-practice care of babies born too small or too soon. See summary info here for more information.
