Abstract:

This presentation is designed to discuss the role of feeding therapy, breastfeeding, and family dynamics with infants with neonatal abstinence syndrome. These baby/family dynamics can be complex situations and feeding difficulties are extremely common. Breastfeeding education/information can be implemented prior to birth along with other education for families to promote more infant/family bonding and reduce stress of being born in substance exposure. Breastfeeding dramatically reduces stress signs in infants exposed to substances neonatally. Working together as an interdisciplinary team, we can set these families up for more successful feeding opportunities and decreased stress in developmental care.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: List signs/symptoms of distress in infants who are exposed to substances in utero. ;

Objective 2: Describe methods for implementing successful feeding/breastfeeding in these infants/families. ;

Objective 3: Discuss members and their roles on the interdisciplinary team.
