postpartum/newborn family nursing for Phillipino family : LUSENET : Transcultural Nursing : One Thread

I am a nursing student in my community health rotation. I am meeting with a Phillipino family, first time parents and newborn. I am wondering about newborn/child rearing practices and especially infant feeding. This is the third Phillipino family I've interacted with and it seems the Dad has a lot to do with feeding the baby. Any information you can direct me to would be most helpful.

Thank you. Lisa

Don't forget the importance of talking to your patient and evaluating their beliefs. Do not assume they adhere to beliefs and practices you might find in your search. Don't stereotype...

good luck
