Supporting Breastfeeding to Reduce Newborn Readmissions for HyperbilirubinemiaNursing for Women's Health
AbstractLack of breastfeeding support can result in inadequate feedings at the breast, putting newborns at risk for hyperbilirubinemia, severe jaundice and possible hospital readmission. Nurses can help prevent readmissions for hyperbilirubinemia by becoming educated about the risk factors for hyperbilirubinemia and by implementing preventive measures through improved breastfeeding support.
