We are proud of our clinical nutrition and lactation services team for continuing to advance best practices. Caroline Steele, the department’s director, co-authored Infant and Pediatric Feedings: Guidelines for Preparation of Human Milk and Formula in Health Care Facilities (third edition), with CHOC RD Katherine Bennett contributing a chapter. And we’ve just learned more than 2,000 copies of this authoritative guide have been sold in just a couple of months!
This edition of the book addresses the most up-to-date information on human milk and formula storage, handling, and preparation techniques. Five new chapters have been added. Further updates and additions include: both infant and pediatric feeding preparation; guidelines for facilities seeking to implement centralized infant and pediatric feeding preparation for the first time or expand scope of operations; and information on donor human milk along with guidelines for human milk products. The book discusses lactoengineering techniques and current research. There is a chapter on use of blenderized (real food) tube feedings within the hospital setting. In addition, the book contains expanded information on modular components and other additives.
