Minimizing extra uterine growth restriction is a major factor in improving developmental outcomes of premature infants. Total parenteral nutrition is a valuable tool to provide nutrition soon after birth as preterm infants take time to establish enteral intake. Optimal growth is essential for premature infants to assure overall development. TPN supplementation is not without side effects, but a cautious and multidisciplinary approach helps to minimize potential morbidities. Journal of Nature and Science (JNSCI), 3(1):e301, 2017
