An estimated 70% of mothers in the United States initiate breastfeeding annually. Mothers often discuss breastfeeding problems with their infant's pediatrician. Pediatricians may feel unsure about their role when assisting the nonpatient, breastfeeding mother. By having practical solutions and support systems in place to anticipate and tend to breastfeeding mothers' needs, pediatricians can be instrumental in preventing early weaning. The purpose of this article is to provide practical suggestions to outpatient-based pediatric health care providers when assisting the breastfeeding dyad.
