Popular Diet Trends: Impact and Safety During Lactation
Diet culture is pervasive and it seems everyday brings about a new popular trend or style in how, when, or what to eat. The postpartum period often brings about an incredible amount of pressure to lose weight or “bounce back” to pre-pregnancy body shape. It’s no wonder many turn to popular diet trends with the promises of quick weight loss. However, with a lack of research in the lactating population, there remains concern regarding both the effect these diets may have on milk supply and their safety. This presentation will provide lactation professionals with the information they need to have informative discussions with their clients about popular diet trends.

How Breastfeeding and Food Allergies Intersect: What We Know and How We Can Help
Though the overall risk of the development of food allergies in infants remains very low, prevalence has been increasing. With that increase, we are also seeing more concerns for food allergies in the exclusively breast/chest fed infant. This presentation aims to educate on the different types of food allergies (IgE mediated vs non- IgE mediated) and their symptoms commonly seen in a breast/chest fed infant. We’ll review the current feeding recommendations for an infant that presents with food allergies including maternal elimination diets. This presentation will also explore the role of the lactation consultant in managing food allergies and supporting our families that face this challenging situation.
