Because we are establishing cue-based feeding and trying to justify the need for a nicu-dedicated LC, could you please help provide a general idea of what your facility is doing by answering:
1. Is non-nutritive/dry BF encouraged? How early?
2. Does your unit have dedicated LC(s)?
3. What approximate percentage of infants leave the nicu BF'ing?
4. What size nicu are you in and in where it is located?
I know this is not a formal benchmark or anything very scientific, but I still think it will help! Thanks!
