Journal Article (Journal Article)

Lack of knowledge on the impact of infant development and behavior on breastfeeding affects both professionals and the clients they serve. Continuing education for Nevada WIC professionals with the online HUG Your Baby course Roadmap to Breastfeeding Success was implemented. This two-hour online course teaches about baby's development from birth to one year in relation to the breastfeeding journey. Tests and self-report surveys were used to evaluate these objectives pre- and post-intervention. Results showed significant improvement in knowledge about infant behavior and development, confidence in identifying and responding to infant behavior, and the positive integration of HUG resources into the professionals' work.
