Putting a Plan in Place for Pumping
Pumping can be a choice or a necessity and the role of Lactation Professionals is to meet the parents where they are at. There are endless reasons for parents to use a breast pump, including prematurity, maternal-infant separation, low milk supply, return to work. Pumping can also be a choice for parents that do not wish to directly latch their baby, called Exclusive Pumping. Pumping parents deserve the same kind of evidence-based care as their exclusively breastfeeding counterparts but are often marginalized. During this workshop, you will learn how to best support a pumping parent: the importance of proper flange sizing, pumping schedules, exclusive pumping, the emotional toll of triple feeding, and how to help parents set realistic goals based on their own values.
