Breastfeeding Medicine Basics for Physicians and other Health Care Providers is an 8 hour course designed for medical providers who care for breastfeeding mother/baby dyads in their OB/Gyn, family medicine or pediatric practices. This course focuses on requisite knowledge needed to understand and execute management of common breastfeeding problems, such as mastitis, sore nipples, low/high milk supply, infant fussiness, breastfeeding infants who fail to gain weight, and medication concerns. The material in this course should be considered fundamental knowledge for any medical resident or other health care provider-in-training who plans to work with breastfeeding dyads after graduation.
