High 5 for Mom and Baby

 

 

 

 

 


The value of breastfeeding is well established and it is undoubtedly the optimal way to feed a newborn. Breast milk contains just the right balance of nutrients in the form that is most easily used by a baby’s body.

Breastfeeding‘s benefits extend far beyond being the best source of sustenance. Breastfed infants have a lower risk of a variety of illnesses and infectious diseases. Plus there are numerous health benefits for the moms, too.

Hospital policies and procedures are pivotal to mothers successfully initiating breastfeeding and continuing to breastfeed after leaving the facility. High 5 for Mom & Baby is designed to help hospitals effectively fulfill this critical role.
