The first few days after delivery is the critical time to start successful breastfeeding. Maternity nurses may feel like they lack the skills to be the bedside resource for mothers.
Create a team to provide the best support for your breastfeeding moms. The Breastfeeding Resource Nurse will be at the bedside to give guidance and trouble shoot as needed. Train several of these specialists to assist your Board Certified Lactation Consultants.
