Breastfeeding the Newborn: Clinical Strategies for Nurses
This practical resource provides the scientific basis and the "how-to" techniques to help the mother establish a milk supply and to confirm that the newborn is breastfeeding successfully before discharge. Promoting breastfeeding at the personal, interpersonal, and system levels, this second edition delivers evidence-based care across the health-illness continuum. Brief overviews of pathophysiology are included to enable readers to quickly develop physical assessment skills, make practical recommendations to the mother, and verify that the recommendations achieved the desired results. Clinical case scenarios help the reader think through realistic situations to generate possible management strategies.
