Ill or premature infants do not have the opportunity to begin breastfeeding in an optimal manner; yet, these infants may benefit most from human milk. Health-care providers' knowledge of breastfeeding in both healthy and ill infants is frequently limited due to deficits in training. This article outlines a multifaceted approach to develop a comprehensive, hospital-wide system to support and promote breastfeeding for vulnerable infants. This approach was designed for the staff of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
