What is the Baby Friendly™ Hospital Initiative?

The Baby Friendly USA Hospital Initiative encourages the implementation of the Ten Steps To Successful Breastfeeding. On the other hand, Birth and Beyond Lactation is a California initiative that provides hospital staff with adequate Baby-Friendly training. Above all, the goal of the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative, is to recognize hospitals that implement the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding; but also provide a positive environment for breastfeeding mothers. In addition, this global program includes the International Code of Marketing of Breast Milk Substitutes.

To illustrate, before a hospital can receive this prestigious accreditation, it must go through a rigorous designation process. However, training nurses in the skills needed to implement these policies has proven challenging; accordingly, hospitals prefer to hire nurses who have knowledge of how to help mothers to successfully breastfeed. Because most hospitals are aiming to become Baby Friendly, all nurses desiring to enter the field of Maternal Child Health Nursing should consider Birth and Beyond Lactation Training. To conclude, Birth and Beyond Lactation Training is a valuable class which will greatly contribute to your skills. Learn which USA Hospitals are Baby Friendly.
