Objective To explore the effect of breast milk bank in neonatal feeding. Methods A total of 100 cases of newborns who could not be breastfed in our department from August 2016 to August 2018 were selected as the subjects. According to whether the family members agree to breast-feeding, the newborns were divided into observation group and control group, with 50 cases in each group. The observation group was breast-feeding in breast-feeding bank, while the control group was breast-feeding in formula. The growth and development of newborns and the occurrence of complications were compared between the two groups. Results There was no significant difference in weight change between the two groups during observation period (P>0.05). The incidence of abnormal stool and abdominal distension in the observation group were lower than those in the control group, and the hospitalization time was shorter than that in the control group (P<0.05). The incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and septicemia complications in the observation group were lower than those in the control group, and the differences were statistically significant (P<0.05). Conclusion Breastfeeding in breast milk bank can promote the maturation of gastrointestinal digestion and absorption function, reduce the incidence of feeding intolerance such as constipation, diarrhea and abdominal distension, and effectively reduce the incidence of complications such as NEC and BPD, and shorten the hospitalization time.
