Description - Breastfeeding Challenges Made Easy for Late Preterm Infants by Sandra Cole

Evidence-based research underscores the importance of breastfeeding for the healthy development of late preterm infants, yet significant challenges can impede successful breastfeeding. This is a groundbreaking, problem-solving guide to the most effective techniques for breastfeeding this vulnerable population. Written for lactation consultants, NICU nurses, obstetrical nurses, and nurse-midwives, the book offers clear, simple, evidenced-based solutions to breastfeeding difficulties among late preterm infants.

It describes the growth, development, and nutritional challenges faced by the late preterm infant, often resulting in hospital readmissions--many of which result from ineffective breastfeeding--and significant health risks. The book provides detailed, easy-to-follow instructions for the most effective techniques for breastfeeding this population and describes specific steps health care professionals can take to overcome breastfeeding difficulties. Pictures that illustrate correct procedures clarify specific techniques, and user-friendly patient teaching guides further encourage successful breastfeeding. The book also supports the goals of many hospitals seeking to achieve Mother and Baby Friendly Status as well as the goals of the Multidisciplinary Guidelines for Care of Late Preterm Infants recently issued by the National Perinatal Association.
