Recognizing When Things are Heading South: Investigating for Low Milk Production

Time-frame: 75-120
CERP: yes

When low milk production concerns present, where do you start? Is it real or perceived? Delayed, secondary or primary? Which came first, the chicken or the egg? This session walks through the assessment process to determine what the cause of a low milk supply might be, including infant contributions such as tongue-tie.

The amount of detail depends upon the allotted time. It is not intended to discuss conditions in-depth, but rather to help the attendee through the differential diagnosis process in order to develop a treatment strategy.
