Office-Nurse Breastfeeding Champion Resources
The ultimate goal of this educational project is to train office nurses to provide optimal breastfeeding support for families at their medical homes. More specifically, the Office-Nurse Breastfeeding Champion will be able to:
- Provide optimal breastfeeding triage.
- Educate families on common breastfeeding issues.
- Know community resources to further support families.
- Perform certain skills including measuring pre- and post-feed weights, assessing interval infant weight gain, checking a breastfeeding latch and advising on proper pump use.
