Breastfeeding Management for the Clinician: Using the Evidence
Breastfeeding Management for the Clinician: Using the Evidence, Second Edition is an evidence-based guide that provides current and relevant information on breastfeeding and lactation blended with clinical suggestions for best outcomes. This essential reference includes reviews of literature, and covers the incidence, etiology, risk factors, prevention, prognosis and implications, interventions, expected outcomes, care plans, clinical algorithms, and more, providing clinicians a research-based approach to breastfeeding care. The Second Edition has been completely revised and updated to include hundreds of new references and expanded resources at the end of each chapter. It also includes new information on the anatomy of the nipple, new concepts on breastfeeding management such as biologic nurturing and ventral positioning, the newest research on sucking mechanics of infants, and a section on the late pre-term baby.
