Special issue underlines benefits of human milk in neonatal ICUs

Organisation: Position: Deadline Date: Location:

Human milk is infant food, but for sick, hospitalised babies, it’s also medicine. [s]Science Daily[/s] reports that that is the central premise of a series of articles in a neonatal nursing journal’s special issue focused on human milk for sick newborns. Multiple public health and professional medical associations from the [b]World Health Organisation[/b] to the [b]American Academy of Paediatrics[/b] have endorsed the widespread advantages of human milk and breastfeeding for all infants. In a new issue of [i]Advances in Neonatal Care[/i], researchers cover a variety of topics on the provision of human milk in the neonatal intensive care unit, including original research articles, ethical rationales for the provision of human milk, and evidence-based methods for implementing particular programmes.
