Abstract:

Many of us are aware of human milk’s amazing ability to provide for our infants’ changing nutritional needs with age. Recent research suggests that its composition shifts in synch with mom’s circadian rhythms as well, giving breastfed babies a leg up in neurological development, chrononutrition and sleep patterns. This presentation discusses the diurnal cycles of the following breast milk components: wakefulness vs. sleep-inducing amino acids, hormones (such as melatonin), trace elements, and even some nucleotides. Clinical implications include improving use of pumped breast milk. The presentation concludes with a brief look at other factors related to breastfeeding and infant sleep, including SIDS rates, skin-to-skin, and room sharing.

Abstract:

Feeding is the most complex task of infancy, even in term babies with no complications. There are many diagnoses, conditions, syndromes, and co-morbidities that can impact feeding in neonates and infants. This talk will briefly highlight many of those, but we will focus on three specific populations of interest –Cleft lip and palate, Infants of Diabetic Mothers, and Down Syndrome. We will discuss the specific implications these conditions can have on feeding, why these infants may have difficulty, and the classic symptoms one could expect to see. The differences between delayed and disordered feeding will also be addressed. Strategies and adaptions for both breast and bottle feeding will be discussed. Positioning, nipple flow rate, and external strategies will be explained. Case studies will be shared at the end of the presentation.

Abstract:

Insulin plays a major role in lactation, yet our understanding of how it works has not been well understood. As diabetes rates soar, so do questions on how insulin problems may impact lactation. New research is starting to shed light on these questions, opening both our understanding and our ability to work more proactively with affected mothers. This session will examine the role of insulin, our newest understandings, implications for mother and strategies to support mothers at risk.

USA Alyssa Schnell, MS, IBCLC
Abstract:

Breastfeeding is important for all mothers and babies, even when (and possibly especially when) the baby arrives from another mother’s womb. Increasingly, mothers through adoption, surrogacy, and foster care are interested in nursing their babies. By providing support and helpful information, lactation professionals can play a key role in breastfeeding success for these special dyads. Breastfeeding without birthing mothers may need help latching their babies and/or inducing lactation. Specific tools for latching and protocols for inducing lactation will be presented. Many of these mothers will also need support in supplementing their milk production. Adoptive, intended, and foster mothers can successfully nurse their babies with good support and by approaching breastfeeding based on their own individual values and circumstances.

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:

Prolactin is considered to be a key hormone for lactation, yet our knowledge has been surprisingly sparse. It is necessary for pubertal and pregnancy mammary development as well as milk synthesis. While prolactin level does not correlate directly to milk production, lactation fails without it. This talk will take a closer look at current research and what we do and do not yet understand about prolactin. We will then examine specific cases and discuss the process of elimination as well as possible strategies for affected mothers.

She has worked with Dr. Ann Witt to create an instructional video “The Basics of Breast Massage and Hand Expression” and conducts research on the effectiveness of Therapeutic Breast Massage in Lactation (TBML) both in the office and as a treatment at home for mothers.

Abstract:

Milk expression is common in the United States, but in the modern era it focuses on mechanical expression. In Russia, there has been a long tradition of hands-on techniques which encourages mothers to turn to specialists trained in hand expression and breast massage techniques to resolve breastfeeding complications including engorgement, plugged ducts and mastitis.. Two main principles of therapeutic breast massage in lactation include mobilization of fluid with massage toward the axillae to facilitate lymph circulation and alternating gentle massage and hand expression to facilitate milk removal. These techniques provide a simple, readily accessible method that can be easily taught to mothers and lactation consultants. The purpose of this presentation is to enhance knowledge of techniques for relieving discomfort caused by engorgement, plugged ducts, and mastitis in lactating women. The latest research findings on the role of therapeutic breast massage for breastfeeding mothers will be presented.
