Roadmap to Breastfeeding Success: How baby’s normal development impacts the breastfeeding experience

Session Description

Misunderstanding a baby’s behavior can undermine a new mother’s confidence and cause her to add formula, begin solids prematurely, or abandon breastfeeding altogether. This workshop reviews current pediatric and lactation literature that identifies times when mothers are more likely to be confused by their baby’s behavior from birth to one year. Inspiring parent video, engaging case studies and accessible parent resources will give participants information to help mothers anticipate normal changes in their baby’s behavior so that mothers can more successfully meet their breastfeeding goals.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe Dr. T Berry Brazelton’s Touchpoints theory and how misunderstanding baby’s behavior impacts breastfeeding.
  • Describe three developmental events between birth and one year that impact the breastfeeding experience.
  • Describe two available resources to enhance mothers’ understanding of the impact of child development on breastfeeding.
