Doctors have tried many different methods of feeding to try to decrease feeding intolerance in preterm babies so that they spend less time receiving liquid nutrition and have fewer problems with feeding intolerance.
The purpose of this study is to test two different methods of feeding preterm babies in the hopes of identifying a method that will decrease some of the feeding intolerance that can occur when feeding premature babies.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

Behavioral responses or sequences associated with eating including modes of feeding, rhythmic patterns of eating, and time intervals.
Administration of low doses of a drug or a drug combination over prolonged periods of time usually at a regular interval.
Time schedule for administration of a drug in order to achieve optimum effectiveness and convenience.
A condition of metabolic imbalance that is caused by complications of initially feeding a severely malnourished patient too aggressively. Usually occurring within the first 5 days of refeeding, this syndrome is characterized by WATER-ELECTROLYTE IMBALANCE; GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS; and DIARRHEA.
Nutritional support given via the alimentary canal or any route connected to the gastrointestinal system (i.e., the enteral route). This includes oral feeding, sip feeding, and tube feeding using nasogastric, gastrostomy, and jejunostomy tubes.
