Stanford's Short Course on Breastfeeding was designed for new mothers and the people who support them. This engaging, one-week learning experience, provides participants with everything they need to know to more successfully establish breastfeeding – or support a new mother who has decided to breastfeed. We created the course because we recognize that there is a very small window in which successful, exclusive breastfeeding can be established, and that many new mothers are mastering this skill during a busy and sometimes stressful time. Brought to life by beautiful illustrations and interviews with international mothers, we hope to reach the broadest spectrum of mothers, helping them understand the current recommendations, challenges, benefits and practical considerations around breastfeeding - while simultaneously inspiring them to consider breastfeeding as the first choice for feeding their babies.

Although the course does not officially open until April 16, I was able to access the videos, practice quiz and final quiz as soon as I enrolled. It took me nothing like the recommended 7 hours to complete the course. The videos are short, making it easy for busy mothers and their support network to watch. It is suitable for both health workers and families. If you are not sure about the advantages of breastfeeding, this course clearly explains the health and cost benefits to both mother and baby. It also shows mothers how to tell if their baby is getting enough milk and the video about managi…
