Emerging Developments in Human Milk Fortification: Problem Solving for Clinical Practice
Michaela Berroya, MSN, RN, RNC-NIC
Kirsten Frank, CSPCC, LDN, CNSC, IBCLC
Ariel A. Salas, MD, MSPH
Brian K. Stansfield, MD

This education is about:

  • Overcoming challenges to optimal preterm infant nutrition
  • Strategic use of donor milk
  •  Human milk fortification timing and clinical practice strategies
  • Influence of feeding types on the preterm microbiome
  • Emerging evidence on human milk bioactives
  • Interprofessional collaboration in the NICU

Why it matters:

Human milk is the optimal feeding for preterm infants due to its nutritional and bioactive factors, supporting not only growth and development, but also the immune and gastrointestinal systems. However, questions remain regarding the optimal approach to human milk feeding in the NICU, including selection among fortification types, fortification timing, supplementation strategies, and the role of bioactives. Amidst these uncertainties, interprofessional collaboration and practical solutions to common preterm infant feeding challenges are urgently needed.
