Description

In this course we will discuss the breastfeeding journey of the very low/extremely low birth weight baby in the NICU.

Breastfeeding for these tiny babies starts at birth. Early oral care with colostrum, skin-to-skin care, early and consistent exposure and time at the mother’s breast, infant-driven feeding, and prioritization of at-breast feeding will be discussed. Discussion on engaging mother, family, NICU staff and providers to create an environment and culture of breastfeeding inclusiveness and support of exclusive human milk will be infused throughout this presentation.

This program has been approved for 1.0 contact hours; provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, CEP 13692.

I enjoyed the lesson and it is very informative for my clients and myself. Learned things even though I am a grandma and had my own children. I wish I had this knowledge when I was a young mother.
