we are in the process of becoming baby friendly. I have been on the breast feeding com. for some time and active in the process. We have LC s that are great when they are on the floor, hours are very limited. My biggest concern is staffing. We usually start with 5 moms, yes we have a modified couplet care LOL! The nursery nurse is responsible for the infant, assessment and I&O, circ lab draws and of course the admission. We had CNA's for a few years and now we do not. BUDGET is the word. So we do all,giving water, making beds,etc.
Do not let me forget that we sometimes have GYN pts. I want to be able to assist mom when needed and not have her feel that I am rushed.
I find so much info from fellow nurses on this site. I just want to hear what others have for staffing doing baby friendly successfully.
