Abstract:

During the MILC study we recruited 1003 postpartum mothers of term healthy infants who intended to breastfeed to explore the prevalence and outcomes of breast milk expression, and whether feeding other than directly from the breast prior to hospital discharge decreased the proportion of these infants receiving any breast milk at six months. Data were collected between June 2009 and November 2011, at recruitment 24-48 hours after birth and by telephone interview at three and six months postpartum. At recruitment, 48% of infants had been fully breastfeeding at the breast, 47% had received at least some expressed breast milk. Only 36% of primiparas had been fully feeding at the breast. At six months, infants who had fed only at the breast at recruitment were more likely fed breast milk (76% vs. 59%; OR 1.8, 95% CI 1.27, 2.46; adjusted for parity, type of birth, breastfeeding intention, perceived breastfeeding problems at recruitment and education).

Abstract:

All human babies have the right to breastmilk exclusivity. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways - breastfeeding, expressed breastmilk via a feeding device, or pasteurized donor human milk. Recently there has been much attention placed on the traditional, though professionally frowned upon, practice of informal milk peer to peer milk sharing. The increasing popularity of milk sharing via social media, the growing attention on the importance of breastmilk exclusivity, the increasing awareness of potential dangers of artificial milk, and the inability for donor milk banks to provide donor milk for more than those in critical need has led professionals and families to an impass. Even though some professionals have warned against the practice, its use is becoming more widespread. Finding policy and recommended practices can be difficult. This presentation reviews the current challenges and realities of milk sharing while helping professionals provide best practice recommendations.

Abstract:

The International Breastfeeding Centre has been in need of a validated TT assessment tool that works for newborn and babies of any age, is very quick and easy to administer by a practitioner who has not been trained on the tool, has as few criteria as necessary, captures both anterior and posterior, as well as submucosal ties, is applicable to both breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding babies.  Because of this need, IBC created such a tool and proceeded to have it validated.  To this end IBC's goal was to achieve: 1. Criterion-related validity (compared to HATLFF); 2. Criterion-related validity (compared to physician's assessment); 3. Face validity (>4 Experts); and 4. Inter-rator reliability.

This talk discusses the applications of the IBC TT Assessment Tool, whether or not validation was achieved and the process to achieving it, and how the tool has been put into practice.

Abstract:

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.

Abstract:

It is an amazing feat that the female human can grow and nourish another human body. The two main organs that support this incredible venture are the placenta and breastmilk. There are some research theories that suggest that the maternal link between baby and mother created by the placenta is continued beyond pregnancy through the next vital maternal/baby organ, breastmilk. These two unique organs have many similar properties. They take cues from the maternal environment to change nutrition, hormones, and other developmental and immunological properties that are being sent to the baby. The placenta and breastmilk deliver properties to the baby solely based on its needs and changing environment. The role of both organs is to protect, defend, and support the development of the child. Each organ is perceptive and continuously fine tunes the delivery of essential molecules to the baby. They are intelligent organs, deciphering the environment and using that information to the benefit of the child. The placenta detects the mother’s emotions, nutritional state, and state of anxiety and sends messenger molecules and hormones to the baby to aide the baby’s development in a way that allows it to thrive in its future home outside the womb. Breastmilk has similar capabilities, using GALT and MALT and SIgA to help the baby’s brain, body, and immune system function in its unique world. This presentation takes you on a journey inside these organs to give you a profound lesson in the physical ties between mother and baby.

Abstract:

Every animal has a developmental system or nest for its young that matches up with the maturational schedule of offspring. Humans have a nest too although many people don’t realize it. The human nest refers to the experiences and care that a child receives after birth and in the years that follow. Modern child raising has changed significantly from the nest of our ancestors with concerning results. Learn more about the epigenetic impact of the early nest and how early life experience influences wellbeing and sociomoral character in children and adults as well as societal culture. Delegates will gain an understanding of the essential components of the early nest (including touch, responsivity, breastfeeding, alloparents, positive social support, play, and soothing perinatal experiences) along with ways to empower parents to incorporate them into their infant’s care to create a foundation for lifelong health and well being.
