HealthPhone: Step 1 - Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding



EnglishEnglish

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.

The health facility should have a written breastfeeding policy that addresses all ten steps and protects breastfeeding...[it] should be available so that all staff who take care of mothers and babies can refer to it... should be visibly posted in all areas of the health care facility which serve mothers, infants, and/or children...and should be displayed in the language(s) most commonly understood by patients and staff.

The ten steps call for health facilities to have written policies that are displayed for all to read, indicating that staff is committed to implementing them.

The first step is to have a written breastfeeding policy in English and the local languages. It addresses all the ten steps and states that the hospital does not accept free or subsidized supplies of infant formula and feeding bottles.

The policy is communicated to the hospital administration as well as to all the health workers in the maternity setting.
