Checking Expressed breast milk (EBM) in NICU & SCN

Neonatal nursing staff aim to partner parents in the care of babies.  So checking expressed breast milk (EBM) with parents in NICUs and SCNs just makes sense. ReadyStepGrow are providing friendly little reminders (designed by the Mum of a prem) to empower parents with this simple practice.

"Please check my EBM with Mum or Dad if they're here."  

Melbourne's Box Hill Hospital have placed an order for 20 to start.  Unit Manager Melissah Burnett writes:

"I love this initiative and have been myself involving parents in checking their babies EBM for many years – I also know that it is quite common practice around the state (based on some discussions at the level II Nurse Unit Manager forums). I think rolling this type of signage will be very helpful to promote the practice." 

If you would like ReadyStepGrow to provide some for your NICU or SCN or (if you are a parent) one for your prem, please get in touch.  We'd love to hear from you and we love empowering parents of prems!
