Breastfeeding Champion Training for Outpatient Breastfeeding Supporters

Type: Conferences | Location: Madison, Wisconsin - USA [Mid-West]
02/19/2016
02/20/2016
US/Central

The Milk Mob is a nonprofit dedicated to breastfeeding education for outpatient breastfeeding supporters. Our Breastfeeding Champion Training for Outpatient Breastfeeding Supporters program is a 16 hour curriculum that teaches office staff and any other outpatient breastfeeding supporters how to answer the most common breastfeeding questions that a breastfeeding mother and her family have.

In addition, the Breastfeeding Champion Training Program teaches the following skills:
• Telephone triage using breastfeeding triage tools designed
for use with electronic med records
• Evaluation of infant positioning and latch
• Evaluation and instruction on breast pump use
• Measurement of pre-post feeding weights for infants
• Assessment of infant growth using standard growth curves
• Counseling the breastfeeding mother

Although this training was originally designed for primary care office nurses, a wide variety of community breastfeeding supporters have found it rewarding, including nutritionists, doulas, midwives, WIC peer counselors, medical assistants, licensed practical nurses, medical social workers, health professional students (nursing, medicine, pharmacy), medical interpreters, and medical providers (physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants).

Each Breastfeeding Champion trainee who finishes the 16 hour course and completes a course evaluation will receive:
1. A Milk Mob Breastfeeding Champion certificate. This certificate
is valid for 7 years, after which time we will encourage
Breastfeeding Champions to re-certify.
2. Accreditation- 15 contact hours and 12.5L CERPS
3. A three year membership to The Milk Mob, which includes our
listserv for ongoing breastfeeding education, updates on our
triage tools, and new breastfeeding education handouts.

To learn more about The Milk Mob or to register for a training event please go to www.themilkmob.org or https://themilkmob.org/event-registration/

This course has an instruct-the-instructor model. If you are an IBCLC with experience & knowledge on management of breastfeeding dyads beyond the first year, and you enjoy teaching breastfeeding to groups of enthusiastic learners, check out The Milk Mob for more information on becoming a Milk Mob instructor.

When Breastfeeding Fails: - Margaret Wills
Difficult Times Demand Positive Counseling Skills
Healthcare exists because any body system can have difficulties. But breastfeeding problems are especially emotionally charged, time-sensitive, and complex -- partly because they involve, at minimum, the interactions of two unique participants. Breastfeeding tends to work, and lactation professionals are often helping families with adjustments in normal course. But this session focuses on preparing for unhappy scenarios, when breastfeeding is not working as planned. It aims to provide a base to work from -- of attitudes, carefully honed phrases, and practical strategies -- to rescue something positive out the situation, as a breastfeeding helper walks alongside a family on a unexpectedly difficult path.

Can You Safely Sleep With Your Baby? - Dia Michaels
Much of the social commentary about being a good parent includes directives to never sleep with your baby. Stories abound about infants—almost always African-American—who were smothered sleeping next to an adult. Should you bedshare? Room share? We’ll explore the research, the realities, and how to handle questions about co-sleeping.

1000 Days in Gap City: Exploring the relationship between the breastfeeding gap and the word gap
The first 1000 days of a child’s life is full of incredible developmental potential. Each child is born with the same capacity to learn as the next. Looking at the achievement gap, we can see that some children do not live up to this incredible potential. Can we tackle this ever-widening gap at the beginning of a child’s life? We can by focusing on the word gap, the differential in the number of words children in different socio-economic groups hear in the first 1000 days—a chasm that adds up to over 30 million words a year. Based on this differential, children from low income families are already at a distinct disadvantage by the time they turn 3. This presentation will explore not only different ways healthcare professionals can help families overcome the word gap, but also shows the very real connection between the word gap and the breastfeeding gap. By examining the relationship between the various gaps that children from lower socio-economic groups must overcome, we can uncover strategies that can help narrow the achievement gap.
