Description

The relationship between breastfeeding/chestfeeding, sleep and safety is complex, emotive and controversial. It is well-known that breastfeeding reduces the risk of sudden infant death, and therefore optimizing breastfeeding/chestfeeding remains a public health concern. The need for perinatal and lactation support professionals to facilitate breastfeeding/chestfeeding forces the question of how we realistically support those families at night. Many families are keen to breast/chest feed, but they also may struggle with the practicalities of adhering to the current safe sleep guidelines in the face of exhaustion. This webinar will discuss some of the controversies around sleep, bed-sharing and breastfeeding/chestfeeding, highlighting examples of practice from around the world.

Objectives

Be able to explain some of the hypothesized links between breastfeeding/chestfeeding and reduced risk of Sudden Infant Death
Understand the normalcy of night feeds, the inter-relationship between feeding and sleep, and the necessity of responsive feeding for the maintenance of milk supply
Be able to suggest ways to cope with night feeds for new families
Understand the current guidelines for safe sleep and the questions these raise regarding bed-sharing
Appreciate the differences in recommendations for practice and cultural differences in sleep information around the world
