ABSTRACT
The article comments on the paper "Reference chart for relative weight change to detect hypernatraemia dehydration," by P. van Dommelen and colleagues. The author claims the paper's proposed guideline is that midwives should refer babies to hospital if relative weight change between postnatal days 3 and 6 exceeds -2.5 SDS and thereafter 10% of birthweight. The author recommends that a more focus for a guideline concerned with the detection of lactation failure is the baby and the mother.
