Picky eating is a common occurrence in young children and there are known developmental reasons why this happens. After the first year of rapid growth, a toddler gains weight more slowly so he or she requires less food. In addition, toddlers may thoroughly enjoy one food for weeks and not touch the same food for months. When parents notice this shift in their child’s appetite, they often resort to measures that make matters worse like force-feeding or bribing. This elevates parental anxiety around feeding and makes meals stressful.
Featuring Dr. Lisa Stellwagen from the Neonatology Division of University of California, San Diego and Medical Director of the Newborn Medicine Service
On January 1, 2018, recreational use of cannabis became legal in California. However, a lack of research has created a lot of confusion about the safety of cannabis use for pregnant and lactating parents. Dr. Stellwagen will discuss how to counsel families on cannabis use while breastfeeding including current data, research challenges, and social justice implications.
Featuring Dr. Helen Ball, professor of anthropology at Durham University UK & infant sleep researcher
The notion that infant sleep environments are “good” or “bad” and that parents who receive appropriate instruction will modify their infant-care habits has been fundamental to SIDS reduction campaigns. However, infant sleep location recommendations have failed to emulate the previously successful infant sleep position campaigns that dramatically reduced infant deaths.
This talk examines how SIDS risk reduction messages are generated, disseminated, and how they are received by parents. Using examples from around the world and her own research such as the Bradford Infant Care Study (BradICS) Helen discusses how parents understand SIDS risk-reduction and what affects whether messages are implemented or rejected in different communities and cultural groups.
Presented in the talk will be research on pumping, including how to establish healthy milk production for families with babies in the NICU and for those who choose to pump and bottle feed. Nancy will also discuss specific recommendations for scheduling pump sessions, frequency and length, ways to individualize pumping plans based on breast storage capacity and how to be of most help and support to families who pump and bottle-feed.
Presented by Jessica Lee from the Center for WorkLife Law at UC Hastings College of the Law, Amy Poyer from California Women’s Law Center, and Arissa Palmer from BreastfeedLA.
This webinar will discuss the rights of pregnant and parenting employees and students in California’s schools, including an overview of pregnancy leave rights and legally required accommodations for pregnancy and lactation.
Please join us for a recorded webinar for a timely and informative talk about the basics of oral assessment for lactation support professionals.
Réka Morvay will discuss the anatomical and functional features to look for when performing an oral assessment related to breastfeeding. Newborn reflexes and oral anatomy must come together to make feeding possible. Variations in oral anatomy and/or infant feeding behavior may contribute to compromised development of orofacial structures, and can affect overall health and function through the lifetime.
