"This video demonstrates techniques that caregivers can use with the growing premie who is physiologically stable and gaining weight prior to being discharged home. Techniques include those which promote sleep, encourage alert times, reduce fussiness, and facilitate optimal feeding. Techniques described can be integrated into regular nursing caregiving to encourage optimal development of the preterm infant. The techniques are also appropriate for use by parents as well as staff." -Child Development Media, Inc.
