Exclusively Breastfeeding Triplets-Case Studies
Exclusively breastfeeding triplets can seem to many an unattainable goal, yet two women in Australia have not only reached their goals of breastfeeding their triplets exclusively, but have surpassed their original expectations of what they could achieve. This presentation will focus on two case studies and includes pictures of them breastfeeding their triplets in various positions. Both women have been successful at reaching their breastfeeding goals and are currently breastfeeding into toddlerhood due to many factors which will be discussed. These include the woman’s strong desire and motivation to breastfeed; how their births influenced their breastfeeding experiences; what effect the level of support had on reaching their goals and; their own beliefs as to why they feel they have been successful. The presentation will include how we as health care providers can best support women with multiples to reach their breastfeeding goals.

Social Media Backlash – Addressing Emotionally Charged Responses
Now more than ever, people from all parts of the world are engaging in social media. Many IBCLC’s, midwives, nurses and doctors have social media accounts and use these to connect with breastfeeding mums. Along with the positives come some very real challenges. There are many circumstances where information has been shared and a huge backlash will occur from emotionally charged and aggressive mums who feel as though they are being judged and criticized for using artificial breastmilk. This presents a challenge to the health care provider as it can be time consuming to respond, exhausting keeping up with it all and can make some hesitant to share their thoughts and opinions. This presentation will cover examples of questions asked and mum’s responses, how to best handle and reply to negative comments and ways in which we can use social media in a positive and helpful light for breastfeeding mums.
