  • (NIC) Book -up feed:
    • Determine the origin of the water used to dilute the concentrated or powder formula

    • Provide information to increase the volume of milk, such as appropriate rest, regular milk extraction and increased maternal fluid intake, especially towards the end of the work week
  • If it is necessary to feed with bottles, teach parents to prepare, store, heat and manage artificial milk
  • (NIC) Booklet feeding: warn parents of the risk of using the microwave to heat the milk
  • If weaning is necessary, inform the mother about the return of ovulation and appropriate contraceptive measures


  • Help the mother set realistic objectives
  • Encourage to continue feeding the maternal breast when returning to work or school
