My unit will not send a baby home until they can use a term nipple, but I see preemie nipples for sale all over? What are your guidelines? Do you send babies home using preemie nipples?
Our hospital sends babies home on premie nipples because for a lot of premies, the regular nipples are too big for their mouths and they gag on them or gag because the flow is too fast. But, yes a baby can gag if the nipple is to big for their mouths like the NUK nipple.
