  Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative Session 08: Milk Supply, Growth, & Infant Intake


Improving breastfeeding rates is a key goal of improving maternal-child health, nationally and internationally. “Insufficient milk supply” has for decades been one of the most commonly cited reasons for supplementation or cessation of breastfeeding. To support mothers in meeting their breastfeeding goals, health care providers must be able to recognize the causative factors for insufficient milk supply and know which are reliable and which are not. Advice about normal infant growth patterns may help alleviate some mothers’ concerns; others will need help on improving their milk production and transfer, hence intake (and weight gain) improve. Even those nursing schools which include breastfeeding as part of their curriculum usually cover only the basics, leaving their graduates lacking information about evidence-based practices that support breastfeeding mothers, including those that address inadequate milk supply.
