Event Overview
Welcome message:

Baby and childhood feeding habits can be fraught with problems which can often be easily remedied with the correct information. Attend this program and find out:

How to correctly conduct a breast and breastfeeding assessment

A simple and effective teaching model to teach breastfeeding

What infant formulae are the only suitable and safe alternatives to breast milk?

How to introduce solids according to NHMRC Guidelines

Dealing with food refusal

Can a child totally refuse to feed or eat?

Troubleshooting feeding difficulties from the outset

Need for Program

Experts generally agree that breastmilk is best for a baby. Nutrition is fundamental to the development of all children and sets the stage for health in later life. As well, poor early childhood feeding habits probably contribute to childhood obesity. Providing adequate nutrition to infants and toddlers is complicated by a range of factors including: cultural beliefs, underlying disease, disability, myths and fads. The NHMRC (Evidence-based) Infant Feeding Guidelines primarily relate to healthy infants (2015). However, there are many situations where guidance is needed for children with specific medical needs. Therefore it is essential that nurses and midwives have the nutritional knowledge and skills to prevent, intervene and educate about infant and toddler healthy feeding.

Purpose of Program

This program will inform health professionals about best available evidence relating to infant and toddler feeding so that optimum nutritional outcomes are achieved.

Your Learning Outcomes

Choose the best individualised approach to deliver sustained good nutrition to an infant or toddler regardless of cultural background

Simply teach breastfeeding skills to a mother who has received conflicting advice

Apply the current NHMRC <em>Infant Feeding Guidelines</em> to introduce solids effectively to an infant

Use informed nutrition decisions to advise parents where allergies are a concern
