One of the most universal and natural facets of motherhood, the ability to breastfeed, helps mothers and babies bond and is vitally important to mothers' and infants' health.  For nearly all infants, breastfeeding is the best source of infant nutrition and immunologic protection.  This CEU course describes in detail how nurses can contribute to the health of mothers and their children by discussing the health, psychosocial, and economic effects of breastfeeding, Federal policy, disparities in practices, barriers to breastfeeding, and breastfeeding from the public health perspective.
