Early babies are not good eaters, either. They are quite small and it takes a lot of their energy to feed. Many times, they are given intravenous fluids and small amounts of breast milk or formula until they are ready to eat.
Special nurseries care for premature babies. These facilities offer the baby the best technology we have to offer. I have discussed this issue in greater detail in “Where Will Your Baby Be Delivered: Important considerations for choosing a hospital”.
