This training is perfect for those who have been working with breastfeeding families and are ready to expand their repertoire of skills and knowledge. We are thrilled to be able to welcome Marsha Walker to Washington State! Her ‘Just One Bottle Won’t Hurt!” – or Will It?’ gets to the gut of the matter as she shares more information about the implications for the immune system and the delicate, infant microbiome. And, Melissa Cole has agreed to come back to share more of her expertise in infant feeding with us! The second half of the day will use case studies and activities to practice and build competence around lactation support.
