The Original Foster-Mother Were Wet Nurses

The historical evolution of infant feeding includes direct breastfeeding, wet nursing and bottlefeeding. Before the invention of bottles/ vessels to feed babies, wet nursing was the safest and most common alternative way to feed a baby. As bottles and nipples were developed, scientific advancement improved formulas, wet nursing fell out of favor. It gradually went from being widely accepted as the most normal way to feed a baby to where we currently are as a modern society. It is negatively seen as being weird and risky behavior. When mothers do not breastfeed or give their babies human milk, they use formula to feed their babies. Given the current knowledge of lack of complete nutrition formula has more mothers are showing an interest and actively pursuing wet/cross nursing. This presentation will help us understand the history of wet nursing and offer reasons to support, advocate and be encouraging to mothers who want to participate in the practice of wet/cross nursing.

From Lactation Consultant to Human Milk Banking

Romania is one of the European countries with a very low breastfeeding rate. The emergence of IBCLCs in the past 2 decades helped in improving mothers access to lactation professionals. Starting from 2013 with the first celebration of IBCLC Day, conferences and courses, the awareness of a new profession raise.

Although in Europe there are more than 200 human milk banks, Romania does not have one. The limitations in the process of implementing a human milk bank in the NICU, the gap of legislation, the support of the civic society and 2 cases are discussed in the presentation.

Breastfeeding as a Public Health Issue: Do We Have the Right Approach?

The majority of women should be able to breastfeed, but elements of their experience are ultimately stopping them from doing so. Breastfeeding works best when done responsively but many psychological, social and cultural factors work directly or more subtly against responsive feeding, meaning that many mothers experience difficulties with breastfeeding which can lead to premature weaning. These factors can include separation of mother and baby, a lack of understanding of breast milk production, public attitudes and wider pressures of motherhood to name a few. If we want to support mothers to breastfeed we must understand and target these wider factors to create a supportive breastfeeding environment. It is important however that our approaches to breastfeeding promotion and education are perceived positively by mothers in order for them to be effective. In this presentation I'll be addressing the common barriers to breastfeeding and their impact, along with new research that looks at how mothers perceive common breastfeeding education messaging and what this research tells us about how we can change our approach to ensure our messages have the intended impact.

From the NICU to the Home: Mother’s Experiences

Lactation consultants would benefit from expanding their understanding of the impact of the NICU stay on the family; moreover, they would benefit from identifying the essential role they could play in assisting families to accomplish a positive, healthy, and smooth transition home. Despite continuing efforts to reduce prematurely worldwide, a significant number of infants are born too early or in a fragile medical condition. Many of these infants experience a lengthy stay at the NICU. Lactation support varies across facilities, but families, especially mothers, develop strong connections with their lactation consultant. As one of their most consistent providers in the NICU, the lactation consultant has the opportunity to recognize families' need for continuing support after discharge and strategies to protect the breastfeeding relationship, attachment, and mental health in the long term.

Why Not Home - The Surprising Birth Choices of Doctors and Nurses

Have you ever wondered about home birth? What drives some families to pursue it, often at great personal expense and social risk? Mention home birth to a stranger on the street and you’ll likely get a reaction. In a time when we have more access to technology and healthcare than ever before, maternal mortality rates are rising. So too are C-section rates. At the same time there is a growing push by some to avoid the hospital altogether. Is this a misdirected are rising in the US as maternal mortality reaches Why would doctors who attend birth in hospitals choose to have their own babies at home? Join Jessica Moore, filmmaker and nurse practitioner, on a compelling journey through maternity care in the United States. Told through the lens of doctors, nurses, and midwives, Why Not Home? examines the latest evidence on risks and rewards of different birth settings. The film presents a balanced and accessible view on the latest research, along with moving personal stories of medical practitioners faced with big decisions for their own growing families.

Historical Trauma, Racism and White Privilege: The Barriers to Breastfeeding Success

Too often when discussing barriers to breastfeeding there tends to be a focus on education, poverty, and familial support. However, when we truly look at the causes of health disparities and inequities it is racism and discrimination that are at fault. For many of us, this can be a difficult realization and conversation to have. In this session, Ms. Goldhammer will discuss how Communities of Color are impacted by intergenerational trauma specifically when it comes to attachment and bonding as well as the role that racism and white privilege play in today’s modern day field of lactation. She will conclude with ways in which we can create meaningful impact and further advance racial equity in our field and most importantly in the communities we serve.

Legal and Ethical issues in Infant Feeding

Food/nutrition is a basic need of individuals. Unethical, uncontrolled marketing practices have added to age-old confusions and misconceptions. Products are subtly portrayed as essential and convenient to "modern parents".

Since the time that WHO/UNICEF has declared an International Code, many WHA resolutions have been resolved. Convention on the Rights of the Child accepts the right to enjoy a highest attainable standard. Innocenti Declaration was adopted on Protection, Promotion and Support of Breastfeeding. It is important to support woman, by enacting legislation and adopting its enforcement and by providing adequate paid maternity benefits/leave.

The Indian government has enacted the Infant Milk Substitutes, Feeding Bottles & Infant Foods Act. People should be vigilant enough to realize that legislations are not merely pieces of paper. Health workers have a moral and ethical responsibility to provide health education and report violations by becoming a "Watch-guard".

Even after many legislations, some manufacturers are behaving as if these recommendations don't affect them and have ignored or just given lip services. Health workers, and the general population has a great influence on decision making. There is need to follow laws in spirit rather than words.

Infant Feeding Behaviors as a Measure of Neurodevelopment

Infant feeding behavior is a complex neurodevelopment behavior. Infant feeding is compressed of infants' latch and SuPPRT (sucking pressure pattern regulated over time) in both bottle and breastfeeding sessions. In preterm bottle feeding infants, the regulation of these two components is a measure of neurodevelopment. However, infants' latch and SuPPRT in breastfeeding has not been explored. Dr. Lucas will review infants' latch and SuPPRT during bottle and breastfeeding and explore how these differences make breastfeeding a more sensitive newborn neurodevelopmental measure. Finally, Dr. Lucas will propose why we should consider differences in infant latch and SuPPRT to be a neurodevelopmental infant measure.

When Tears Flow and Milk Doesn’t: Support Through Breastfeeding Grief

Some women who initiate breastfeeding will not meet their duration goals. There are a number of factors that contribute to undesired weaning. For a woman who ceases breastfeeding before she desires to do so, it can be devastating. For the lactation professional or peer supporter, this can also feel like failure. Grief counseling and ethical principles are applicable to supporting a mother grieving the loss of the breastfeeding relationship she desired. This presentation uses case studies to address the questions of how breastfeeding supporters ethically and compassionately support mothers who end their breastfeeding journey before they wish to, how lactation professionals and peer supporters can manage our own feelings in these situations, and what are the ramifications of these cases as we continue to share accurate breastfeeding information in the face of media-driven culture in which infant feeding is loaded with guilt, shame, and fear.

Human Milk: Defense Against Pathogens

When antibiotics were first broadly introduced in the 1930s, they were considered the most important advancement in modern medicine. Deaths attributed to communicable diseases were drastically reduced leading to the belief that infectious diseases were conquerable. Bacteria, however, counter antibiotic chemotherapy with resistance mechanisms that result in the emergence of infections untreatable by the current artillery of therapeutics. Efforts to develop new antimicrobial agents with unique structural motifs and novel modes of action to fight multi-drug resistant pathogens are ongoing. During this seminar, I will discuss our groups ongoing efforts to develop human milk oligosaccharides as novel antimicrobial agents.
