Premature baby. Hand holding a sleeping premature baby with a nasogastric tube up its nose. Premature babies must often 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.
