Today begins the start of World Breastfeeding Week (WBW). Held annually since 1992 and recognized in more than 170 countries, World Breastfeeding Week highlights the global impact that breastfeeding has as “a key element in getting us to think about how to value our wellbeing from the start of life, how to respect each other, and care for the world we share.” The theme is “Breastfeeding: A Key to Sustainable Development.”
Are you a healthcare professional looking for an essential resource to help you work with new mothers and infants? We just published Supporting Sucking Skills in Breastfeeding Infants, Third Edition by Catherine Watson Genna.
Using a multidisciplinary approach, it incorporates the latest research on infant sucking and clinical strategies to assistant infants with breastfeeding. With an emphasis on skills, the Third Edition focuses on normal sucking function in addition to difficulties based in anatomical, cardiorespiratory, neurological, or prematurity issues.
If you're a busy clinician you know that integrating the latest research into everyday practice can be a challenge. The recently published Breastfeeding Management for the Clinician: Using the Evidence, Fourth Edition by Marsha Walker can help. Using a research-based and problem-solving approach, it includes literature reviews while covering incidence, etiology, risk factors, prevention, prognosis and implications, interventions, expected outcomes, care plans, and clinical algorithms.
Studying for the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) certification examination just got easier with the recently published Comprehensive Lactation Consultant Exam Review, Fourth Edition by Linda J. Smith.
Comprehensive Lactation Consultant Exam Review, Fourth Edition is an ideal reference for beginning lactation consultants and those re-certifying, as well as dietitians, childbirth educators, nurses, and breastfeeding counselors. Organized around the mother-baby dyad’s development, it poses questions unique to each particular stage.
