Physicians must continue to improve their knowledge regarding lactation. Improved education will allow for alterations in standard practices that may deter breastfeeding. Presently known influences on successful breastfeeding should direct changes in clinic and hospital practices. Continued research into various aspects of care in and out of the hospital must be pursued to improve maternal-infant care and breastfeeding.
