Managing Low Weight Gain & Low Milk Production in the Breastfeeding Dyad

 

This event is free from commercial sponsorship by companies associated with the baby feeding industry as stipulated in the WHO International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes.

The focus of the seminar will be assessing milk transfer at the breast, understanding the importance of the milk ejection reflex in milk transfer and weight gain, strategies to improve weight gain & milk production, how to manage when & how supplements are given and how to wean off them.
