Demystifying Medically Indicated Newborn Supplementation

I’ve decided to create a resource to help explain why some babies need nutritional supplementation. Breast milk substitutes have been demonized so much in today’s society that some parents balk at supplementation even when their baby depends on it. My hope is to shed some light on the when, why, how, and with what when it comes to your supplementation options. This is in a powerpoint format. I allow this resource to be freely distributed but not sold. This is a resource for moms, and a resource to use if other lactation professionals would like to teach moms. All information is cited within and at the end of the presentation. It is using the most up to date information from The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.
