Comparison of lipid and calorie loss from donor human milk among 3 methods of simulated gavage feeding: one-hour, 2-hour, and intermittent gravity feedings.

PURPOSE The objective of this study was to compare the differences in lipid loss from 24 samples of banked donor human milk (DHM) among 3 feeding methods: DHM given by syringe pump over 1 hour, 2 hours, and by bolus/gravity gavage. DESIGN Comparative, descriptive. There were no human subjects. METHODS Twenty-four samples of 8 oz of DHM were divided into… CONTINUE READING
