Abstract:

Of the thousands of lactation studies published during the last decade, some have the potential to make us more effective as we help nursing families. This session provides an overview of the cutting- edge knowledge and skills supported by recent evidence. It includes new science on the impact of early formula use on allergy, the dynamics of mammary dysbiosis, the effects of parental obesity on lactation, new approaches to preventing jaundice and excess weight loss after birth, novel treatments for mastitis and hypoglycemia, LGBTQ nursing and language, new ways of understanding and explaining early positioning and milk production, picture-based tongue-tie assessment tools, nursing the early term baby, and more.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Explain how viewing gender on a spectrum rather than as a binary concept affects language and the lactation choices of some LGBTQ families.

Objective 2: Summarize the results of selected studies that have the potential to improve lactation practice.

Objective 3: Describe how lactation professionals’ view of their role can affect families’ satisfaction with their quality of care.
