The San Diego County Breastfeeding Coalition presents Beyond the Hospital-Breastfeeding Care for Offices, Clinics and Public Health Nurses a live webinar featuring the founder and medical director of UCSD Premature Infant Nutrition Clinic (PINC), Dr. Eyla Boies, MD, FAAP, FABM.

During this webinar Dr. Boies will illustrate how to provide breastfeeding support to the mother-baby-dyad after hospital discharge. Dr. Boies will begin the webinar by identifying different breastfeeding support strategies and explaining best practices for implementation within the newborns' discharge medical care plan. Next, she will discuss the different signs that professionals need to recognize in dyads who are having difficulties with breastfeeding, such as sore nipples and engorgement, putting them at risk of breastfeeding failure. Building on this information, she will describe a number of tactics that should be employed to help the dyad thrive in their breastfeeding journey. In closing, she will demonstrate how to develop plans to manage common infant problems related to breastfeeding in the first two weeks after discharge for example insufficient weight gain, jaundice, and late preterm infant.
