Abstract

A woman who did not initiate breastfeeding after the birth of her preterm infant did so 27 days later, after her infant developed necrotizing enterocolitis. Using specific strategies including kangaroo care principles and simultaneous breast pumping to facilitate relactation, the mother was able to provide an adequate supply of breastmilk at the time of her infant's hospital discharge.
