Abstract:

Having in-depth knowledge about clinical lactation tools should be a part of any lactation professional’s toolbox. In this session we will review evidence and clinical application of tools such as nipple shields, cup feeding, finger feeding, at-breast supplementation and bottles. Feeding-related tools may be needed during lactation for a variety of reasons but what are the benefits and risks? We will explore critical thinking strategies for tool selection. Clinicians that have a strong foundation in feeding tools can often help family’s find creative ways to meet their feeding goals faster than just a ‘wait and see’ approach.

This session will have you re-thinking how you think about feeding tools and when to use them.

Learning Objectives:

Utilize critical thinking skills when selecting clinical lactation tools
Select tools that help families work on and identify their unique feeding goals
List risks and benefits of nipple shields and supplementation methods including cup and finger feeding, bottle and at-breast supplementation
