Baby Friendly Hospital

ANSWER:“Baby-friendly hospitals are a specific designation that’s given to a number of hospitals around the country for hospitals that are not “baby friendly hospitals” aren’t necessarily mean to your baby.  A baby friendly hospital basically is a hospital that’s set up to encourage breastfeeding practices, so they have a certain number of policies in place to encourage breastfeeding. They’ve got training for the staff and breastfeeding. They encourage you to room in with your baby rather than having the baby in the nursery and it’s pretty easy to find which hospitals are baby friendly and which ones aren’t. You can look that up on the Internet and the baby friendly hospitals group has a website that lists all of them.”
