Cue Based Feeding –
A New Approach to Transition Off the Tube


Cue-based feeding is a new approach to feeing preterm babies and is now being widely used in special care baby units across the UK.   The approach looks at babies’ skills, communication and reactions to the feeding process and pays less attention to gestational age and volumes of milk taken.   The approach has proved very successful with babies taking less time to move from tube to full oral feeding and a reduction in the time spent in hospital.
