    -Marianne Neifert, MD, FAAP
    A recent Colorado survey data has identified these five specific hospital maternity practices that significantly increase breastfeeding durations among mothers of healthy infants.

    • Infants to breastfeed within one hour of birth. Infants to be held skin to skin during this hour.
    • Infants stay in the same room as their mother.
    • Infants are fed only breast milk and receive no supplements.
    • No pacifier is used.
    • Staff gives mothers a telephone number to call for help with breastfeeding.
