Working With Families Feeding Beyond 12 Months: Offering Support With Confidence
This session focuses on supporting parents who are breastfeeding/chestfeeding beyond 12 months. Many of us live in countries where breastfeeding beyond 12 months is not the norm. When it does happen, it may not happen openly. Parents are often feeling increasingly isolated and may be dealing with lack of support from family and friends. There can be further challenges such as new issues with positioning and attachment, conversations with employers and health professionals, dealing with family break-up and thinking about new pregnancies. Parents continuing to feed older children may not always feel able to reach out to local breastfeeding support services that often focus on the newborn period. You will be encouraged to reflect on your personal approach to supporting feeding older children and whether you have any unconscious or conscious bias that may affect your work. The session will give you confidence to discuss the value of continuing to breastfeed with families and colleagues and be able to offer a variety of support.

Supporting Milk Production Beyond the First Six Months
Parental concerns about milk supply sufficiency are still a very present worry for many beyond 6 months, yet are often overlooked. Families may be struggling with new phases such as changes in sleep, distractibility during feeds, starting solid food, an increase in work outside the home, a return of a menstrual cycle and struggle to manage their breastfeeding alongside these shifts. They may find it harder to access support and information after the early months, particularly in a world where there seems to be a huge range of what is normal in terms of balancing milk volume and solid food intake. This presentation will elucidate how we can support parents to understand the natural shifts in milk production that happen over time and help them to gain confidence about their feeding journeys.
