Breastfeeding is very beneficial for the health of both mothers and babies. Despite this fact, not enough mothers are breastfeeding. It is important for nurses to help facilitate successful breastfeeding. The purpose of this literature review was to determine what interventions from healthcare staff impact the success of breastfeeding. Articles were retrieved from reliable sources such as CINAHL, Pub Med, and Medline in order to compare what research shows as beneficial for breastfeeding to what was observed in the clinical setting. The results revealed that health care support, educated staff, and baby friendly policies impact the success of breastfeeding. It is critical that health care staff in the women and infants’ field are educated and prepared for the challenges that accompany breastfeeding.
