You are the registered nurse performing a health assessment on a newborn infant. From the functional health pattern portion of the assessment, you learn the mother is reluctant to breastfeed her baby. One of the most important aspects of health promotion in the infant is nutritional status. At this time, you take the opportunity to inform the mother about the benefits of breastfeeding. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Dietetic Association have released recommendations and position statements in support of breastfeeding. In addition, research has shown that the positive effects of breastfeeding last into adulthood. Find a research article in the GCU eLibrary that discusses the positive impacts of breastfeeding not only in infancy but also later in life. Summarize the article, and write one or two paragraphs stating how you would share this information with the mother to encourage the mother to breastfeed her baby? List community resources that are available for breastfeeding mothers. Include in-text citations and references for each of the scholarly sources used.
