Overview

In the environment of short hospital stays, breastfeeding is an important concern to new mothers. They depend on nurses to deliver quality education and instruction in successful breastfeeding techniques. BREASTFEEDING THE NEWBORN: CLINICAL STRATEGIES FOR NURSES focuses on "what to do," rather than "what to know" about breastfeeding techniques, delivered in a highly personable and easy-to-read style. Real-life case studies, practical solutions, and insights help the nurse apply results of research to clinical practice.

* A logically organized and easy-to-read format, offering practical solutions and insights to the most common breastfeeding concerns.
• Photographs and line drawings enhance the text, depicting relevant anatomy, physical assessment skills, positioning techniques, common and special breastfeeding holds, and pertinent equipment.
• Special chapter on breastfeeding the unhealthy infant, Chapter 7, assists the nurse with guidelines for breastfeeding the preterm infant, the infant with cardiac problems, the neurologically compromised infant, and the infant with cranio-facial defects.
• Priorities for Care boxes summarize the most salient breastfeeding recommendations in bullet-point format.
• Research Highlight and Historical Highlight boxes summarize and critique selected research studies and show how the results are applied to clinical practice.
• Clinical Scenario boxes offer real-life case studies that promote critical thinking and generate possible management strategies.
• The comprehensive and useful appendices provide breastfeeding education, promotion, and support resources for both the professional and the breastfeeding client.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jacqueline Hutcherson, MSN, CNM (East Carolina University)
Description: This book provides clinical strategies for the nurse who is promoting, supporting, and managing breastfeeding for the newborn.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide clinical strategies on how to manage breastfeeding based on an understanding of physiology and research. The trend continues to promote breastfeeding in an environment filled with many obstacles. This book fills the need by providing the tools for the clinical practitioner to accomplish this task.
Audience: According to the editor, the primary audience is nurses who practice in a variety of roles from staff nurse to advance practitioner. I concur with this judgement. The editor is a nationally recognized perinatal nurse expert with many years of clinical and academic experience regarding the topic.
Features: Complete information based on physiology and scholarly research regarding promoting and supporting breastfeeding is provided. Special problems and populations are addressed to add to the completeness of the book. Detailed narrative is utilized, accompanied by reference information in an easily accessed boxed and bulleted section. To enhance learning, clinical scenarios provide insight into application of information to real life situations. In addition, an extensive appendix on client and professional educational material is provided. The only limitation noted is some duplication of information in an attempt to be complete.
Assessment: This book is a current, practical resource for nurses who promote, support, and manage breastfeeding women. This is a detailed review of the multiple facets of breastfeeding: how-to, identifying barriers, providing excellent clinical strategies, and resolving problems encountered when managing the woman who plans to breastfeed or is breastfeeding.
