Ten Step Tuesdays
It’s Ten Step Tuesday! …what’s a Ten Step Tuesday, you ask?
The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative is based on the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding, so each week you’ll find a different breastfeeding-related tidbit in your inbox and available below. Sometimes it’ll be a “Did you know,” maybe a hot topic or a bit of scripting to help you support breastfeeding patients.
The content of these posters was originally developed by Michelle Finn, MS, IBCLC, Lactation Team Lead at the University of Kansas Health System. The posters are for internal use only. Do you have a topic you'd like to see covered? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas.
