With all we know about the nutritional, therapeutic, and neuroprotective properties of breastmilk, as well as its role in supporting bonding and attachment, how can we best support mothers in the NICU who want to breastfeed their premature or sick babies?

In this presentation, we will discuss evidence-based ways to help NICU mothers achieve optimal milk supply, as well as practical ways NICU staff can help to increase human milk nutrition in the NICU. We will describe ways to support use of early colostrum as oral care for extremely preterm infants. Lastly, we will describe a Preterm Breastfeeding Pathway to support NICU mothers in successfully breastfeeding their babies prior to discharge without delaying time to full oral feeds or increasing length of stay.

Objectives 1. Discuss 4 ways to support optimal milk supply for NICU mothers 2. Describe 4 ways to increase the use of human milk nutrition in the NICU 3. Discuss 3 ways to support use of early colostrum as oral care for ELBW infants 4. Describe 3 ways to support mothers in breastfeeding their preterm infants before NICU discharge.

A separate post-webinar roundtable with Dr. Phillips will provide an opportunity for a deeper dive and collaborative discussion around your hospital's practices.
