Abstract:

While some clinicians might roll their eyes when ‘lactation cookies’ are mentioned we know foods and herbs have long been used to nourish the postpartum parent and enhance lactation. Some topics this talk aims to cover: Does nourishment matter when it comes to breastmilk quality or quantity? How can we approach galactogogues for lactating mothers in an individualized way? How can clinicians evaluate evidence and determine safety regarding galactogogues? We know that parent coping with milk supply concerns are often desperate to ‘try anything’. Clinicians have an important role in helping families understand the risks and benefits of galactogogues. By helping parents identify resources and information around foods and herbs, we can help empower them to make informed choices.

Abstract:

Numbers are used all the time in the lactation field. Test weights, percentiles, % of weight gain, are just some of the information that is gathered to help make infant feeding decisions. But what are they really telling us? When are they useful? Using these numbers in a way that actually helps support and promotes breastfeeding are key. Appropriate infant weight gain, how to do a test weight, scale calibration, calculating infant intake, and the possible need for supplementation, will all be covered.

Abstract:

Sometimes lactation starts off robustly and continues well, other times it does not. Sometimes it starts off poorly and builds well, other times it never reaches full steam. When milk production experiences change from one baby to the next, it is difficult to understand why. This talk reframes the conversation about milk production in a way that helps capsulize the impact of various factors on the course of lactation.

Abstract:

Domperidone currently is used worldwide as an anti-nausea agent for adults, children, and women. It is currently available in 60 countries including Canada and Mexico. Domperidone was recently given orphan drug designation for the treatment of hypoprolactinemia in breastfeeding. Over 60,000 cases of hypoprolactinemia are reported annual in the United States. Infants who do not receive human milk cost the healthcare system over $13 billion each year and result in over 900 unnecessary infant deaths annually. Domperidone can produce significant increases in prolactin with subsequent increases in milk production. No drug is currently approved for the condition of hypoprolactinemia of lactation in any country.

This presentation will describe and explain the Orphan Drug Act and the steps necessary for domperidone to receive approval under the Act. Prolactin facts will be discussed as well as a review of the rare disease, hypoprolactinemia. The scientific rationale for the use of domperidone will be covered. Practical information will be presented on domperidone dosing and withdrawal of the drug with sufficient milk supply and with insufficient milk supply.

Egypt Rania Abdou, MD, IBCLC
Abstract:

The commonest reason of interrupted exclusive breastfeeding is assumption of insufficient breastmilk. Fenugreek has been traditionally used by Egyptian women to increase milk supplementation. However, this practice has not been scientifically evaluated yet. We elucidated fenugreek-tea effect on expressed breast milk quantity by a Comparative study on 2 groups of healthy mothers according to fenugreek consumption whom baby was admitted to Ain shams University NICU for more than 2 weeks and expressed breastmilk using manual breast pump divided into. Results showed earlier increase in mean breastmilk-volume in fenugreek group. Significant difference of pumped breastmilk quantity between groups at day 3 & 8 where fenugreek group showed higher volume yet at day 15 the net daily volume showed no significant difference between both groups. We concluded that fenugreek consumption may affect earlier stages of lactogenesis so can be used for satisfaction and reassurance in those stages.

Abstract:

We know that the most common reason mums stop breastfeeding before they would otherwise choose is because they believe they don’t have enough breastmilk. In many cultures there a herbal remedies to increase milk supply. We have medicinal options available as well. What is the research behind the “magic wands”? Can any products cause harm rather than benefit? When should they be used and when is skilled breastfeeding support more important? Why is some populations is poor milk supply never a concern? Who is responsible for the perceived need to increase milk supply?
