August is #NationalBreastfeedingMonth and the AAP has recently updated their breastfeeding guidelines. Pediatricians can help families break through some of the barriers to breastfeeding, including providing lactation consultations at their practice. Read more from PCC.
"Pediatricians will be familiar with the initial visit 24 to 48 hours after birth, where breastfeeding is discussed. This important visit and conversation shouldn’t be discounted for the value of imparting important breastfeeding information, support resources, and advice. Pediatricians can ask about the parents’ plans for breastfeeding, offer suggestions, as the child’s primary care physician, and provide the many benefits of breastfeeding for infants and mothers."
Retail and urgent care clinics are growing in popularity, but here's how pediatric practices can compete and engage with families via PCC.
"Determine what patients and their families really want (and how they decide how to receive care). Transparency, flexible scheduling, evening and weekend hours, same-day appointment availability, and one-stop service offerings (including pharmacy and vitamin options) are paramount."
August is #NationalBreastfeedingMonth. The AAP shares info on how you can make your pediatric practice a breastfeeding-friendly place for families.
"Introduce the subject of breastfeeding as early as possible, ideally with prenatal visits and early postpartum visits. Use open-ended questions to inquire about feeding plans for the child, such as “What are your thoughts about feeding your baby?” or “Tell me about your previous infant feeding experiences.” Encourage attendance by both parents and/or partners at all visits, and consider discussions with grandparents or other important decision-makers in the family."
