Abstract:

Sometimes lactation starts off robustly and continues well, other times it does not. Sometimes it starts off poorly and builds well, other times it never reaches full steam. When milk production experiences change from one baby to the next, it is difficult to understand why. This talk reframes the conversation about milk production in a way that helps capsulize the impact of various factors on the course of lactation.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: List the factors of the Milk Supply Equation
Objective 2: Differentiate between static and dynamic maternal factors in milk production
Objective 3: Describe the impact of infant suck on lactation initiation and persistency and Explain the potential impact of breastfeeding during pregnancy on a subsequent lactation curve
