I found the info on the films, as well as a possible address. Somebody else may
have more info?
I originally saw these at a Southeastern Lac Cons Association (SELCA) meeting.
The tape has 4 short films:
BREASTFEEDING REDISCOVERED (1985) Two leading pediatricians, Dr. Natividad
Clavano from the Phillipines, and Dr. Yngve Hofander from Sweden present a look
at the effects of hospital practices on bf initiation and duration.
FEEDING LOW BIRTH WEIGHT BABIES--A video made by UNICEF/ESARO/IBFAN-Africa in
1986 which takes a look at the practices in two major hospitals in Kenya in the
feeding of low birth weight infants with their mothers' breastmilk. Bf in Kenya
is shown to protect babies from the risks of early death and poor health.
Infants too weak to suck directly at the breast are fed by cup or tube. [This
is the main one with cup feeding, I think]
MOTHER KANGAROO--A LIGHT OF HOPE was produced in 1988. It deals with the new
technique pioneered in Columbia to ensure the survival of premature infants.
BREASTFEEDING--A GLOBAL PRIORITY is a 1988 video production which takes an
overview of the positive impact of bf programs in Africa, Asia, and Latin
Total running time is about an hour, I think.
I didn't have an address with that description, but I found another address for
UNICEF Baby Friendly stuff that might work:
US Committee for UNICEF

Anybody else seen these?
