Caption: Premature baby. Hand comforting a premature baby with a nasogastric tube. Babies born before 37 weeks of development require constant monitoring in a contained environment. Their immune system and internal organs are under- developed and they have difficulty maintaining a constant body temperature. The nasogastric tube allows food to be passed into the stomach. This particular baby was born five weeks premature.
