Key points:\ud \ud 1. Not all infants who leave neonatal care will go home fully orally fed\ud 2. Supporting parents to identify infant states is an important part of oral feeding and oral care development\ud 3. It is important that practitioners who work with infants understand the rationale underpinning approaches that support infant feeding
