    Information about the webinar presentation:

    Breast feeding is an evidence based early intervention for reducing risk for obesity and diabetes. The IHS promotes and tracks breast feeding via efforts such as the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative, the Diabetes Treatment and Prevention Program Best Practices, and GPRA. This session will provide an in depth look at how hospital and new parent practices affect the innate impulses and adaptive behaviors of the newborn learning to breastfeed. Neurological processes/model for infant feeding will be outlined and described. Tips and tools for increased implementation and sustainability of baby friendly hospital practices will be shared.
