Helping Mothers Initiate Breastfeeding
This 45-minute module will give home visitors who work with pregnant women and families information they can use to support mothers who have chosen to breastfeed. The module offers anticipatory guidance to help mothers prepare for breastfeeding, including information on latch, positioning, foods to avoid, and baby's hunger and sleep signals. Participants learn difficulties a mother may encounter as she initiates breastfeeding, along with possible solutions. The module includes "red flags" to watch for that indicate that a mother may need additional help and resources that may be available to support breastfeeding mothers.
