DE0151: Diabetes Online CDE: Reducing Stress to Help Baby Nurse: Addressing Latching Challenges
This webinar is offered through a collaboration with the IHS Division of Diabetes Treatment and Prevention, with the recording available on the DDTP website at https://www.ihs.gov/diabetes/training/cmece-online-edu/diabetes-online-cme-ce-education/.
Breast feeding is an evidence based early intervention for reducing risk for obesity and diabetes. Getting baby to latch properly is important to a good breastfeeding experience for moms and babies. Maternal interpretations of infant behavior and signs of infant frustration can impact mom’s motivation to breastfeed. This session will provide information on how staff can enhance maternal functioning by providing support, interpreting and framing normal infant behaviors, and modeling and teaching ways to increase the infant’s ability to work through breastfeeding difficulties. The IHS promotes and tracks breast feeding via efforts such as the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative, the Diabetes Treatment and Prevention Program Best Practices, and GPRA.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Teach moms to interpret infant behavior and signs of frustration with feeding.
2. Model and teach breastfeeding moms support behaviors to promote the infant’s ability to work though feeding difficulties.
