Abstract:

Breastfeeding is normally a robust process, but sometimes mothers and babies end up in a gray area where your gut isn’t sure that everything is going to be okay. When low milk production concerns present, where do you start? Is it real or perceived? Delayed, secondary or primary? Which came first, the chicken or the egg? This session walks through the assessment process to determine whether a problem exists and what the cause of a low milk supply might be.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Differentiate the three main categories of milk production problems.
Objective 2: List 3 maternal risk factors for lactation problems in the early postpartum
Objective 3: Explain the impact of infant suck on maternal milk production
