Calibration: Early Control of Milk Production

Time-frame: 60-90 minutes
CERP: yes

Low milk production endangers infant nutrition and the continuation of breastfeeding. Research has revealed that milk production is calibrated by hormonally influenced breast development during puberty and pregnancy, and infant breastfeeding behavior and breastfeeding management immediately after birth. This talk explores how the breast calibrates milk production during early postpartum so we can optimize each mother’s potential to meet her baby’s needs.
