While feeding unsupplemented mother's own milk to very low birth weight infants (birth weight <1500 g) has been shown to result in slower weight and length gains (12, 16), the implications of this slower growth are unclear and there is not enough evidence to assess if it increased the risk of malnutrition.
Very low birth weight infants are significantly more likely to survive when delivered in hospitals with high-level neonatal intensive care units that care for more than 100 such newborns annually than are those delivered in comparable facilities that provide care to fewer than 100 such children every year.
