Abstract:

The latest developments in science, medicine and psychology suggest that the most critical formative period for human development is between pre-conception and baby’s first postnatal year. This is the most “sensitive and critical period” in the establishment of life patterns in all domains: physical, mental, emotional, relational, and spiritual. For over three decades, prenatal and perinatal psychology has been studying our earliest development from pre-conception through birth and bonding. The field’s research and clinical experience have established the fact that our earliest experiences form the foundation of our sense of self, our capacity to relate to others and our resiliency in life. This work has also effectively mapped key nodal points of development that need to be met in order to promote healthy life patterns. This presentation will outline 12 principles from this research and clinical practice that will help guide practitioners in understanding and applying the fundamentals in their work.

Abstract:

Nutrition cannot be interpreted without growth charts. WHO released new international growth standards in 2006 to monitor growth of children 0-59 months of age receiving optimal nutrition and care. Lactation Consultants and Health Care Providers should use these charts to complement IYCN Counselling. They should be thorough with the science behind WHO Growth Charts and how to use this information for ideal IYCN Counselling. The concepts of stunting and wasting (SAM & MAM) also needs to be understood.
Every growth chart has a story to tell. We found WHO growth charts to be accurate and extremely useful for knowing past events and use the information to promote optimal growth and development in future. Every contact with the child in general and for every immunization in particular needs to be looked as an opportunity to discuss growth and development.
