Breastfeeding the Newborn: Clinical Strategies for Nurses
In the environment of short hospital stays, breastfeeding is an important concern to new mothers. They depend on nurses to deliver quality education and instruction in successful breastfeeding techniques. BREASTFEEDING THE NEWBORN: CLINICAL STRATEGIES FOR NURSES focuses on "what to do," rather than "what to know" about breastfeeding techniques, delivered in a highly personable and easy-to-read style. Real-life case studies, practical solutions, and insights help the nurse apply results of research to clinical practice.
* A logically organized and easy-to-read format, offering practical solutions and insights to the most common breastfeeding concerns. * Photographs and line drawings enhance the text, depicting relevant anatomy, physical assessment skills, positioning techniques, common and special breastfeeding holds, and pertinent equipment. * Special chapter on breastfeeding the unhealthy infant, Chapter 7, assists the nurse with guidelines for breastfeeding the preterm infant, the infant with cardiac problems, the neurologically compromised infant, and the infant with cranio-facial defects. * Priorities for Care boxes summarize the most salient breastfeeding recommendations in bullet-point format. * Research Highlight and Historical Highlight boxes summarize and critique selected research studies and show how the results are applied to clinical practice. * Clinical Scenario boxes offer real-life case studies that promote critical thinking and generate possible management strategies. * The comprehensive and useful appendices provide breastfeeding education, promotion, and support resources for both the professional and the breastfeeding client.

Similarly, breastfed infants begin with a faster, two-per-second type of suck,
which helps the mother to have a milk-ejection reflex. At this time, the infant is
exerting only negative pressure, and in the absence of fluid in the oral cavity, the
negative pressure will be highest (and therefore pressure on the mother's nipple
greatest). When the mother has a milk-ejection reflex, nutritive suckling begins.
This is exhibited by a slow, rhythmic suck of about one per second, with no
pauses in the ...
A total of 127 breastfeeding women were recruited for the study and were asked
about their signs of milk ejection during the first 4 days. The investigator looked
for both objective and subjective signs of the milk-ejection reflex. Objective signs
included (1) uterine cramps, (2) contralateral dripping, (3) dripping when the
infant was not suckling, and (4) cessation of nipple pain after the infant had
sucked for a few seconds. The objective sign was the test-weighing of the infant
to determine ...
Mothers may have some, but not enough, milk for their infants. Mothers who do
not have signs of a functioning milk-ejection reflex or whose infants are not
making adequate weight gains or do not have adequate output are likely to have
an insufficient milk supply, due mostly to inadequate milk transfer. A physiological
problem also exists when the infant's needs are great or capabilities are few; this
would include infants who cannot suckle well or those with increased basal
needs (see ...
