    I feel so alone in my profession and this will be a benssilg! I have a question that I need help with. My manager at work, in a large hospital, told me that the nurses and physicians had a problem with informed consent when it came to breastfeeding. ie: we have mothers who state that they want to breast and bottle feed. I discuss the importance of getting a good milk supply started before introducing a bottle, always asking why. Most mothers state it is because they are going back to work, then I discuss this finding out when they go back, making a breastfeeding plan. The problem is that the nurses want to give bottles without informing the patients about possible consequences as they get their milk supply going for NON medical reasons ie: get sleep at night, second night feeding frenzie, etc. I feel it is my ethical responsibility as a RN and IBCLC to give informed consent (ie: information) because most mothers do not understand the consequences of bottles of formula in the first few days and I have made it clear that the nurses have that responsibility also. They do not like this. Any suggestions would be helpful as I have called a meeting of the managers next week. Thanks, Doreen

      Yes, It is important to inform mothers. Giving bottles without medical indication just create more problems. And the mothers do have a right to know the consequences. Perhaps hospital stuffs need more training on breastfeeding.
