Objective: This study focused on promoting breastfeeding. A group of 32 underserved postpartum women in a Baby-Friendly hospital presented with 10 pre-existing breastfeeding risk factors. Ten interventions and increased time of interventions were implemented during their 2- to 3-day hospital stay. The LATCH scores were increased, and the hospital's exclusive breastfeeding rate was 83%.

Method: This study was a retrospective chart review.

Results: The breastfeeding nursing intervention characteristics have a strong relationship with the LATCH scores. The increased LATCH scores related with increased nursing breastfeeding intervention characteristics.

Conclusion: Identifying the breastfeeding problems and implementing proper interventions increased breastfeeding rate.
