Many babies with Trisomy 13 or Trisomy 18 will be tube fed in the early days. For some children, this will continue and may include a blended diet through the feeding tube.

Breast Feeding, Expressing and Bottle Feeding

Often babies born trisomy 18 and trisomy 13 will struggle to breastfeed or bottlefeed. Some mothers may choose to express milk for their baby to have from either a bottle or through a feeding tube. Some babies will be able to learn how to take infant formula from a bottle.
