Spirited or Calm: How Temperament Impacts Breastfeeding/Chestfeeding and Parenting

In celebration of IBCLC Day 2022, GOLD Learning is excited to welcome Andrea Herron as she shares her presentation titled "Spirited" or Calm: How Temperament Impacts Breast/Chestfeeding and Parenting. Andrea is co-author of the recently published book "Suckle, Sleep, Thrive: Breastfeeding Success Through Understanding Your Baby's Cues" and has more than 40 years of experience working with breast/chestfeeding families. Her presentation uses case studies to illustrate how the classic nine temperament traits can impact both infant feeding and parental response to their child.

The work that we do as IBCLCs reaches far beyond our assistance with breast/chestfeeding and the teaching we provide can help to shape a parent's understanding of their child and have a positive impact on both the transition into parenthood and the parents' and baby's emotional well-being. Join us for an hour of practice changing learning that you won't find anywhere else!
This lecture is approved for 1 L-CERP.

Andrea Herron, is one of the first and longest continuous certified pediatric nurse practitioners in the United States. After more than 40 years working with breastfeeding mothers and their babies and teaching parenting classes, she is among one of the most experienced consultant in the field of lactation. Regardless of the issue or concern, Andrea has guided thousands of mothers to meet their breastfeeding and early parenting goals through support groups, lactation consultations, and childrearing education. After receiving a Master's in pediatric nursing from UCLA, Andrea became an early pioneer in the back-to-breastfeeding movement, and educated health professionals as an instructor in the UCLA lactation educator course, all over the United States. Her private lactation practice, Growing with Baby in San Luis Obispo, California, was used as the national model for private practices by Women Infant and Children (WIC), the federally funded health and nutrition program. One of her favorite and most popular topics she teaches through her Growing with Baby parenting groups is, Understanding Your Infant’s Temperament. This topic and many of the other topics she teaches are included in her newly released book, Suckle, Sleep, Thrive: Breastfeeding Success Through Understanding Your Baby’s Cues. Co-written with Lisa Rizzo.

Andrea has been married to Larry Herron, an orthopedic spine surgeon, for over 35 years. They are the proud parents of a grown son, two Labradors, a cat, and parrot. The couple reside in Shell Beach, California.

Knowledge about infant temperament has been known since the early 1960s with the release of the ground breaking research of Dr. Alexander Thomas, Stella Chess and Herbert Birch and yet, among the general public there seems to be a lack of information about this important body of science (temperament). When parents perceive their baby as content and seemingly non-demanding, they may be shocked and dismayed to find out during a routine well baby visit that the baby is underweight or is failing to thrive. They thought the baby was content because she didn’t give clear cues, and as a result, was underfed. In another scenario, when the baby is irritable despite frequent feeding mothers may lose confidence and question the quantity and quality of their milk and prematurely wean. The behavior of the intense baby that screams on the scale when weighed and is tortured by the bath is overwhelming and misunderstood. When behaviors are misread or inappropriately responded to, optimal physical and emotional development is potentially affected. This presentation will help the learner understand the classic nine temperament traits and how they are grouped into classifications. The listener will learn about the topic of “goodness of fit “and its impact on the long-term emotional health of the infant and developing child. Finally, with case study examples, the emphasis is on how temperament impacts breastfeeding/chestfeeding.
