An important reason for early weaning is (perceived) insufficient growth and milk production. This worries both parents and healthcare professionals. Therefore monitoring growth is an important aspect of the care around newborn babies and young children. Although weightloss in the first days of live is normal in humans, the consequence is often supplementary feeding. In this presentation I will discuss how tools to closely monitor weightloss ánd -gain can help prevent unnescesary supplementation. And how such a tool, if and when used properly, can also help in education of both healthcare professionals as expecting parent. In this presentation the focus will be on a tool developed by TNO Nederland precisely with the aim to prevent unnescessary supplementation and cessation of breastfeeding.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: use a growthcurve for the first 10 days of life to coach parents and other healthcare professionals.

Objective 2: interpret conflicting information between growth(curve) and clinical presentation of the baby

Objective 3: assess when to use the more common norm used (5, 7 and 10% of weightloss) and when to use a more precise tool in order to assist parents with breastfeeding management.
