The NOMAS is a clinical tool commonly used to evaluate the oral-motor skills of neonates. This study is to examine its predictability in feeding performance using newly organized items. The results showed that in addition to the adjusted age and weight at observed feed, jaw depression and jaw initiation were the significant predictors for successful bottle feed. Participants will discuss implications of findings and the need for standardized assessment in neonate feeding.
