Classic Late Preterm Infant – Nutrition Pearls from NICU to Home

Free Webinar

As pediatric dietitians, we often talk about preterm nutrition being an entirely different WORLD. But for many dietitians, once they get a taste of this world, they never want to turn back.

If you're a dietitian working with infants, or a dietitian who WANTS to work with infants (totally doable by the way!), GUARANTEED you will run into preterm infants along your path.

We've seen tonnes of late term prems just like Rosie, our case study for this webinar.

Join us for a taste of preterm nutrition as we take you through our thought process in assessing and managing the nutrition issues that Rosie runs into and share the pearls we've picked up along the way.

This webinar is for you if:

✔️ You have limited prior exposure to preterm infant nutrition

✔️ You feel like you're winging it and want to increase your confidence

✔️ You lack training and/or access to experienced pediatric dietitians

✔️ You want to increase your knowledge and add practical tips to your toolbox

Spend 75 minutes with us.

We'll introduce you to baby Rosie. She was born at 34 weeks gestation, needed fortified feeds and is now working on balancing growth with transitioning to breastfeeding. If you've ever spent some time in a NICU, you know that babies with a similar story to Rosie come along on a regular basis.

Drawing on years of experience with babies just like Rosie, you'll get chance to see how we go about adjusting her feeds and monitoring her nutrition status to get her home safely 🏠
