USA Jane A. Morton, MD; Adjunct Clinical Professor of Pediatrics

Dr. Jane Morton has had a long, fulfilling career as a general pediatrician, She has also had a long-standing interest in breastfeeding, from understanding its clinical benefits to practical solutions for mothers having difficulty in providing breastmilk to their infants.  Over the years, she has conducted research on human milk and breastfeeding and has designed and implemented systems and policies to help breastfeeding mothers.  She produced award winning videos on this topic, including “Breastfeeding: A Guide to Getting Started”, “A Preemie Needs His Mother: Breastfeeding a Premature Baby” and “Making Enough Milk, the Key to Successful Breastfeeding”.  These have been translated and widely used in thousands of hospitals to train both staff and new mothers. As an executive board member of both the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine and the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Breastfeeding, she enjoyed working to enlarge the footprint of breastfeeding, both nationally and internationally.

For a 5 year period, she joined the neonatology clinical faculty at Stanford to develop the Breastfeeding Medicine Program.  In that position, she had the opportunity to design a nationally recognized educational program, conduct and publish original research on milk production and composition in mothers of very low birth weight infants, and publish a study with the AAP on the efficacy of a breastfeeding curriculum for physician residents in training. She was an advisor to the California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative, and was a key author of the toolkit “Nutritional Support for the Very Low Birth Weight Infant”. She co-authored the book Best Medicine: Human Milk in the NICU.  She has published extensively and presented her original research and educational workshops internationally. She continues to teach at Stanford where she is an Adjunct Clinical Professor of Pediatrics, Emerita.

Abstract:

Complications of insufficient milk production and suboptimal intake account for delayed discharge, readmission, potentially serious medical complications and a sharp drop off in any breastfeeding before 1 month. Reframing lactation support based on prevention, accessibility and sustainability, we could logically reduce these complications, while increasing exclusive breastfeeding rates for both low and at-risk infants. Recent science supports the importance of beginning this support for all mothers in the first post delivery hour, to prevent what might be called, “the lost first hour syndrome”.

Abstract:

In a perfect world, every baby would latch beautifully right after delivery and breastfeed happily ever after. In reality what we often see is that most moms and babies need a little help to get breastfeeding off to a good start. Many dyads need a lot of help. And a few mother/baby pairs need a miracle to breastfeed successfully. How can we best help those tough cases? There are many reasons babies struggle to latch and feed well. Some issues may include structural issues, physical discomfort, respiratory concerns, medical issues, digestive issues, poor feeding tool choices, prematurity, etc. Many providers are frustrated when they are unable to help a dyad latch and feed successfully. This presentation will covers some reasons why babies struggle to latch and breastfeed well. We will go over cases that portray challenging situations and the assessment techniques and care plan strategies that helped. This session is designed to help providers implement critical thinking skills in order to think outside the box when it comes to difficult cases.

Abstract:

The phenomenon of Breast Crawl is unique due to multitude of Neuro-Endocrine components in the baby and the synchronized Neuro-Endocrine platform provided by the mother. The scientific details will help the Health Care Providers to understand the reasoning behind dos and don’ts for successful implementation of Breast Crawl. Addressing the obstacles to initiate breastfeeding by Breast Crawl in any maternity set up is a challenge for administrators as well public health experts. It is time that WHO and UNICEF declare Breast Crawl as the universally recommended method to initiate breastfeeding because that is exactly the process described in revised BFHI documents. Breast Crawl phenomenon is also a rich fertile ground for many research avenues like breastfeeding success, neuro-motor development, neonatal mortality, bonding etc. The entire spectrum from initiation with Breast Crawl and Baby Led Attachment to KMC in pre-term as well as full term newborns is worth exploring.

Abstract:

The gag reflex is usually situated far back in the infant’s mouth to allow them to bring the nipple almost to the junction of hard palate and soft palate. However, certain babies present a very sensitive and hyperactive gag reflex and which causes gagging more easily. For these babies, a good, deep latch can stimulate this gag reflex. In order to avoid gagging, infants will develop a shallow latch taking less breast tissue into the mouth. This can result in low milk transfer, painful feedings for the mother and a possible decline in milk supply. This presentation will assist the lactation professional in utilizing various approaches to avoid undesired consequences of hyperactive gag reflex in a breastfed infant, and will ensure that they have the skills necessary to work with families facing this feeding challenge. Veronique will explain methods of desensitizing the gag reflex, using modified position and latch techniques, and maintaining milk supply. As part of this presentation, Veronique will take the listener through relevant case studies encountered in her work as a private practice IBCLC.

Abstract:

The incidence of multiple births has increased over the last two to three decades, as has the desire of these women to breastfeed their multiples. However, preterm birth and medical interventions often affect breastfeeding initiation and frequent breastfeeding/pumping. Many mothers must establish lactation via milk expression and later transition one or more multiple-birth infants to breastfeeding. The behaviors of a typical breastfeeding dyad have been compared to a dance. With multiple newborns a mother must learn each infant’s unique breastfeeding dance. Is it any wonder that mothers of multiples often need extra support with breastfeeding management. This session will review typical issues affecting breastfeeding initiation with twins, triplets or more, and discuss strategies for assisting the mother as she learns the breastfeeding dance of each unique multiple-birth infant and then adapts each dance as her newborns/infants grow.
