7 Secrets of Baby Behavior – New Design, Same Great Information!

Are mothers in your care confused by their infants’ behavior? Do many of these mothers complain that they don’t have enough breast milk even though their babies are healthy and thriving? Do you hear that infant crying and waking are common reasons for using supplemental formula or giving up on breastfeeding?

From our work with WIC participants in the WIC Baby Behavior Study, we learned that some of the information used to help participants better understand their infants′ behavior can be useful for non-WIC families too. Our products, geared to a high school reading level, can help support your efforts to keep new moms breastfeeding and prevent overfeeding of infants by today’s confused parents.
