August is International Breastfeeding Month and we are excited about sharing with you our Special August Issue on Breastfeeding the High Risk Infant. Dr. Diane Spatz is our guest editor for this issue of Advances in Neonatal Care and has shared with us a range of breastfeeding topics including: pumping support, implementing human milk centers, as well as ethics in the provision of human milk and peer support to facilitate breastfeeding. Findings from research studies include exploration of the NICU work environment, peer counseling as well as education and support for breastfeeding. We believe this excellent issue will inspire and stimulate lots of discussion and practice change around this important topic. Please do not hesitate to share with us your impressions of this special issue.
