Abstract:In this webinar we will explore the current evidence concerning the use of human milk, both mothers’ own and donor milk, in Neonatal Intensive Care, as well as breastfeeding these infants. Our knowledge of the importance of human milk grows almost daily with respect to nutrition, acute and chronic disease risk reduction and prevention, neurodevelopment, physiology, the intestinal microbiome, and family dynamics and bonding, among others. Human milk is one of the most important tools in our arsenal of modern medicine in this technological world; it saves lives. We will discuss the importance of mother’s own milk, early expression and the differences of pasteurized donor milk. We will also cover the all-important transition to breastfeeding for those families who wish to breastfeed, with appropriate and adequate community follow-up for all families expressing milk and breastfeeding, which is all too often forgotten or ignored. We can help our families achieve these goals!
