Caring for the Late Preterm Infant: A Clinical Practice Guideline

Late Preterm Infants, those born between 34 0/7 weeks and 36 6/7 weeks, often appear outwardly similar to and are treated like full term infants. However, research has shown that they often have some of the same medical issues as early preterm infants, including feeding issues, breathing issues and developmental delays. 

In an effort to create a better system of care for the late preterm infant,  the Oklahoma Infant Alliance has created a toolkit for health care providers and families, so both can have a better understanding of the unique needs and issues of the Late Preterm Infant. For more information or to order full copies of the toolkit visit the Oklahoma Infant Alliance.
