Advanced Feeding Videos

This program will prepare nurses to develop feeding skills to become feeding champions with the NICU babies. Feeding NICU babies takes time and experience, OT assist with feeding but nursing feeds around the clock - we need a core set of feeding champions to develop feeding skills for newer staff
