Abstract:

"Full-term," "natural term," or "extended" are just a few of the phrased that are often used when describing breastfeeding/chestfeeding relationships that last longer than the cultural norm for a given community or geographic region. We know that breastfeeding/chestfeeding past infancy is full of benefits for both the parent and the child. Yet many families who plan for (or unintentionally find themselves in) a breastfeeding/chestfeeding relationship into toddlerhood or beyond face critiques, emotions, logistics, and a need for support that is unique to this experience. This presentation will cover considerations of full-term nursing including an overview of developmental stages for a breastfeeding/chestfeeding child, changes in milk composition, and psychobiological benefits to both the child and parent. We will also explore ways that lactation supporters and professionals may offer support, encouragement, and guidance to these families. Whether you have been supporting full-term nursing for years, or this is an area that you'd like to learn more about, you're sure to leave this presentation with insights and strategies that you can use to support full-term nursing families.
