1. Discuss the value of engaged fathers and fatherhood.

2. Advocate for recognition of fathers as equal partners in the breastfeeding and parenting relationships.

3. Describe effective teaching strategies to prepare fathers for their role as breastfeeding coaches.

Abstract:

Fathers are an undervalued resource in breastfeeding, often ignored or treated with indifference. This presentation highlights the unique role of fathers as both the Co-Parent of the child and the mother’s primary care giver upon discharge from the hospital. We will discuss the literature regarding the impact that fathers have on breastfeeding and how they can be used more effectively to support breastfeeding. The presenter will also provide an insight into the male mind and how to effectively communicate with fathers. It also covers effective teaching strategies to bring fathers into the breastfeeding relationship. Newly updated for 2020.

Still Swimming Upstream: Breastfeeding in a Formula Feeding World

Tom Johnston is unique as a midwife and lactation consultant and the father of eight breastfed children. Recently retired after 27 years in the US Army, he is now an Assistant Professor of Nursing at Methodist University where he teaches, among other things, Maternal-Child Nursing and Nutrition. You may have heard him at a number of conferences at the national level, to include the Association of Woman’s Health and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), the International Lactation Consultant’s Association (ILCA), or perhaps at dozens of other conferences across the country. In his written work he routinely addresses fatherhood and the role of the father in the breastfeeding relationship and has authored a chapter on the role of the father in breastfeeding for “Breastfeeding in Combat Boots: A survival guide to breastfeeding in the military”.

1. Discuss evidence of a formula feeding culture and the detrimental effects on breast feeding success.

2. Evaluate common practices in American Hospitals, explore their orrigin and validity.

3. Discuss the medical bias toward formula as a safety net.

4. Discuss future policies that will promote breastfeeding as the cultural norm.

Abstract:

In 1995 Chris Mulford published a timely article on the difficulties faced by breastfeeding mothers in a formula feeding culture. That article was as accurate then as it is today. This discussion will focus the history of breastfeeding in America and on age-old difficulties faced by breastfeeding mothers in a medical society that has been decidedly focused on the formula feeding for more than 100 years. We will discuss the concept of “culture” and how it impacts breastfeeding, discuss the routine actions in the hospital that contribute to the formula feeding culture, and identify the prejudices of both society in general and the average American mother-baby unit against breastfeeding.

The Making of Human Milk: A Clinical Update

1. Define Milk Synthesis and Milk Production.

2. Demonstrate basic working knowledge of available strategies for measuring milk supply (both synthesis and production, and their limitations.

3. List helpful teaching strategies and counseling styles that will minimize the perceptions of inadequate milk supply.

Abstract:

How often to we hear mothers say “I just didn’t make enough”. Everyone seems to blame the mother for everything, it seems that every time it rains the mother and the pediatrician think it is raining because mother didn’t make enough milk, usually with no evidence. This talk will discuss the scientific evidence behind low milk supply, and several methods used to measure it. We will clarify some of the confusing and often misleading terms used to discuss breastfeeding, milk production, milk synthesis, milk supply, and how they are used to mean the same thing, when they actually are very different. The speaker will attempt to clarify this confusion by introducing three new terms, Milk Delivery, Milk Production, and Milk Transfer, as well as introducing a new model for assessing and diagnosing potential issues with milk supply.

New Insights Into the Maternal Child Microbiome

Recently retired after 27 years in the US Army, he is now an Assistant Professor of Nursing at Methodist University where he teaches, among other things, Maternal-Child Nursing and Nutrition.

1. Describe the Maternal-Newborn Microbiome.

2. Discuss the value of the microbiome and its effect on wellness.

3. Explain the symbiotic relationship between the baby and the breast and the role that Human milk plays in regulating the infant microbiome.

4. Discuss implications of the microbiome and dysbiosis.

Abstract:

It has been 10 years since the Microbiome burst on the scene. In that time there has been a huge interest in the microbial world of the maternal-infant dyad. There appears to be a symbiotic microbial interplay between the two that has been playfully dubbed “The Oro-boobular-axis”. There is now solid evidence that the mother passes her microbiome to the infant as it passes through the birth canal and breastfeeds. There is also evidence that the baby passes their microbiome to the mother through “Retrograde inoculation”. This new understanding of human lactation is beginning to offer explanations to how some of the magic “benefits” of breastfeeding may actually be happening at a cellular and microbial level. It isn’t as well understood as some would have you believe, but it is an exciting new world to explore.

Promoting Provider Self-Efficacy in Breastfeeding Support

1: Discuss the need for clinical lactation education for health care providers.

2: Discuss Albert Bandura’s concept of Self-efficacy and the four requirements for self-efficacy.

3: List effective clinical teaching strategies for health care provider students.

Abstract:

40 years of public health messaging has worked tremendously. We have met the HP2020 goals of >80% breastfeeding initiation, you are to be congratulated. Unfortunately, what we have missed is providing clinical skills training to our health care providers. We now have a majority of new families initiating breastfeeding and very few people prepared to care for them when there is trouble. Research shows that 80% of new families experience clinically significant breastfeeding problems in the first two months of lactation, and physicians and nurses are woefully unprepared to help. This leaves the families without care and unprepared for what may be a difficult and painful struggle. This presentation discusses the research regarding health care provider education and reports on studies that may demonstrate an effective way to encourage provider self-efficacy in breastfeeding support.
