Incorrect feeding position for infants. The article “Common Questions About Outpatient Care of Premature Infants” (August 15, 2014, p. 244) contained an error in the third sentence of the third paragraph of the evidence summary for the section titled “How Should Gastroesophageal Reflux in Premature Infants Be Managed?” (page 245). The article incorrectly recommended that infants be fed in a reclined position to minimize gastroesophageal reflux. The sentence should have read, “Feeding should occur in the seated or semi-reclined position to minimize reflux.” The online version of this article has been corrected.
