With the use of current technology we know more than ever that breastfeeding is about more than nutrition.  Technological advances in nanotechnology, epigenetics, ultrasound, infant brain imaging and the human microbiome have given us critical information.  With all the knowledge that we have, practices need to change as well.  Changes in simple practices can lead to increased success for women with breastfeeding.  This training presents a case study highlighting areas of practice where interventions can improve breastfeeding success.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe two current technologies that have improved our ability to understand the anatomy and physiology of breastfeeding.
  • Describe two practices that can increase the likelihood of success for breastfeeding mothers.
