Too much supplementation means baby is getting less of the parent’s own milk, and eventually, there is less milk production for the parent. Too little supplementation means baby is not fed enough. So how do we find that juuuuust right amount? Or determine whether supplementation is really necessary? When it is necessary, how do we supplement in a way that preserves long-term breastfeeding outcomes? This presentation can serve a guide for if, when, how and how much to supplement direct breastfeeding with additional human milk or infant formula.

Learning Objectives:

1. List 2 circumstances which can result in long-term lactation insufficiency
2. Describe 2 ways to determine whether baby is getting enough milk
3.Create a plan to supplement a baby’s intake, including volume calculation and supplementation device selection
