    Abstract

    Nutrient losses from banked breast milk during tube feeding were determined from laboratory models. Large fat losses occurred, continuous feeding giving rise to significantly greater losses than bolus feeding. More fat loss occurred with low flow rates and there were also significant protein losses.
