Breastfeeding: New Strategies for Improved Outcomes with Wendy Wright, MBA, IBCLC, RLC
|State||New Mexico |
Breastfeeding is normal infant feeding. Supporting mothers and babies throughout the entire breastfeeding journey will lead to improved breastfeeding outcomes. Join Wendy Wright as she shares strategies to eliminate breastfeeding problems and thereby increase breastfeeding duration and success. This comprehensive seminar will include current information on:
Baby's inborn feeding behaviors
Appropriate expectations for the first two hours, the first two days, the first two months
Nipple pain and breast issues
Milk production and supply
Milk expression and storage
Techniques and tools
Most families intend to breastfeed prior to delivery and yet, very few are still exclusively breastfeeding at their infant's two month birthday. Wendy looks forward to sharing techniques and ideas to increase your breastfeeding knowledge to support the families under your care. We will utilize videos, models and hands-on demonstrations to make the day engaging and informative.
At the completion of this program, you will be able to:
Recognize baby's inborn feeding behaviors and teach mothers to recognize and respond to these behaviors to meet their breastfeeding goals.
State the normal expectations (cues, crying, sleep, weight gain) for breastfed babies at two hours, two days and two months of life.
Compare the benefits and risks of postpartum practices, such as skin-to-skin contact and frequent breastfeeding to a newborn's risk of developing hypoglycemia.
Recognize newborn jaundice and incorporate solutions aimed at minimizing breastfeeding interruption and supporting mother's behaviors and breastfeeding confidence.
Differentiate between mother-baby factors causing nipple pain and propose solutions for each.
Assess the basic dynamics of milk production and offer strategies for increasing or decreasing supply.
Evaluate milk expression methods and assist mothers in selecting the best method for their family's unique needs.
Describe the latest techniques and tools to aid the mother/baby dyad in accomplishing their breastfeeding goals.
