Breastfeeding and Diabetes

Time-frame: 60-90
CERP: yes

Diabetes (Type 1, Type 2, and Gestational) are all increasing among the general population and especially in childbearing women and their children – much of it as a result of the increasing rates of overweight and obesity. This offering discusses each type of diabetes as it relates to breastfeeding or the lack of breastfeeding and looks at the potential complications to breastfeeding that diabetes can present. Recommendations for diabetic breastfeeding mothers are presented.
