Keywords:Feeding response, neonates, NICU
Nutrition was important rule to maintain health status and growth and development support. The variety of neonatal condition has contibution to neonatal feeding and feeding process in neonates. Hypoglikemia, hyperbilirubinemia, prematurity and infection have influence to respon if feeding in neonates. The aim of this study was to describe evidence of poor feeding in neonates. This research was use case control design. The population ware all of the neonates in NICU. The samples are 21 respondents taken by total sampling technique. Instrument was observation sheet. The results showed poor feeding in naonates happen in all neonates with hypoglikemia, hyperbilirubinemia, prematurity and infection in variety degree. The most number of baby with poor feeding showed by premature and infection baby. Poor feeding in premature baby caused by prematurity of gastrointestinal organ. Gestasional age contribute in rooting and sucking reflect. Infection has strong influence to poor feeding in neontes. Recommendation of this research was feeding process in neonate with prematurity and infection should given in careful way.
