From the Editors

With this issue of Advances in Neonatal Care we continue our special series highlighting the importance of the human microbiome to neonatal care. This emerging area will significantly inform the future care of newborns; therefore, these next two articles in Unraveling the Microbiome provide a glimpse into what we know about the microbiome and the infants we care for. Please let us know about how you feel this series is important to your caregiving in the NICU. We hope you will enjoy exploring this new area.

Also in this issue are two more articles about breastfeeding the high-risk infant, which should provide important information about the need to consider getting a preterm infant to the breast sooner. We also have an article about the work of COINN in moving neonatal nursing forward across the globe, and we have another about the use of web cameras in the NICU. The use of this technology is a growing trend, so hopefully this article will provide you with insight for implementation in your setting. Lastly, we want to take the time to again thank our reviewers; without good peer review, our journal cannot be excellent, and your time is very important to this process.


Hot Topics
Multisensory Intervention for Preterm Infants Improves Sucking Organization

An intervention to teach mothers of preterm infants how to interact with their babies more effectively results in better weight gain and growth for the infants. This Advances in Neonatal Care article shows that infants who receive this intervention grow better and also more rapidly develop the muscle control needed for successful feeding.
