Implementing skin to skin in first hour “most of our nurses did this at previous jobs!” “We have changed our HR policy so our staff can use break times for milk expression” “We have provided BCEP to ALL our staff and our doctors” We have decided to pursue Baby-Friendly!”

14 Baby-Friendly Oklahoma
Purpose: Provide OK Birthing hospitals support to work toward Baby-Friendly Hospital designation Offer a statewide Baby-Friendly Hospital Summit (winter 2013) to educate maternity care leaders and promote steps toward the Baby-Friendly designation Goals: Improve exclusive breastfeeding rates at hospital discharge Improve duration rates Reduce Oklahoma infant mortality and child/adult obesity rates

15 Baby-Friendly Hospital = Optimal Breastfeeding Care
Two main components: Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding No marketing of breastmilk substitutes in the hospital Baby-Friendly hospitals do not accept or distribute free or low-cost supplies of breastmilk substitutes, nipples or pacifiers. We’re also working to increase the number of baby-friendly certified hospitals in OK, and have received funding to continue these efforts. We’re currently working to identify 10 birthing hospitals that will to work toward achieving the Baby-Friendly Hospital designation by beginning implementing 4 of the 10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding

16 Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding
Every facility providing maternity services and care for newborn infants should: Have a written breastfeeding policy that is routinely communicated to all health care staff. Train all health care staff in skills necessary to implement this policy. Inform all pregnant women about the benefits and management of breastfeeding. Help mothers initiate breastfeeding within one hour of birth. Show mothers how to breastfeed, and how to maintain lactation even if they should be separated from their infants.

17 Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding
Give newborn infants no food or drink other than breastmilk, unless medically indicated. Practice rooming-in – allow mothers and infants to remain together – 24 hours a day. Encourage breastfeeding on demand. Give no artificial teats or pacifiers (also called dummies or soothers) to breastfeeding infants. Foster the establishment of breastfeeding support groups and refer mothers to them on discharge from the hospital or clinic.
