Baby Friendly Designation
Wayne General Awarded Baby Friendly Designation
Being together gives parents more opportunities to learn about normal baby behavior knowing that knowledgeable staff can answer their questions about their baby and breastfeeding. Baby-Friendly staff will carefully assess your baby’s feeding so that any early problems can be taken care of quickly. Staff will assist you in breastfeeding so that you feel more confident. Furthermore, if breastfeeding worries arise after you and your baby go home, our Baby-Friendly hospital has staff who can help you solve feeding problems. Breastfeeding has many benefits not only for infants but for their mothers as well. For mothers breastfeeding helps them to recover quicker, lose weight, and reduce the risk for high blood pressure, certain breast and ovarian cancers, and Type 2 Diabetes. Breastfeeding has also been shown to lower a baby’s risk for ear infections, asthma, lower respiratory infections, childhood leukemia, Type 2 diabetes, eczema, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), and much more. I am truly passionate about preventive medicine and women’s health. Chances are everyone in our community has experienced or knows someone who has experienced one or more of these illnesses.
