Caption: Premature baby. View of a premature baby with a nasogastric tube, seen in an incubator. The incubator provides the baby with the ideal environment for survival. Premature babies must often first be fed using a nasogastric tube as they have no sucking reflex and only poor swallowing ability. Premature babies are usually kept in hospital until they weigh about 2.25 kg and are feeding well.
