A report on the highly successful NICHQ-led Best Fed Beginnings initiative is featured in the June online edition of the journal Pediatrics. The article, "Best Fed Beginnings: A Nationwide Quality Improvement Initiative to Increase Breastfeeding," features insights and analysis on the initiative's major achievements, including driving 80 percent of participating hospitals to achieve "Baby-Friendly" status and nearly doubling the number of Baby-Friendly designated hospitals in the U.S.

“The results speak to how quality improvement and collaboration are two of the key drivers for making systemic changes and implementing evidence-based best practices,” says NICHQ CEO Scott D. Berns, MD, MPH, FAAP. “The progress made by these hospitals and the approach NICHQ used to support them can be viewed as models for other initiatives and facilities to create sustainable change and better support patients and families.”
