Register online HERE to join me for a live 75-minute online webinar on Thursday, February 15, 2018, sponsored by the nonprofit organization BreastfeedLA and Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital.  This event will start at 1 pm Eastern time/10 am Pacific time. It will be followed by a 15-minute Q & A, and its recording will be available to all registered attendees for later listening and review.

Presentation Summary: Why focus on exclusive pumping? We are in the midst of pumping epidemic! In "Helping Families Who Exclusively Pump," I will summarize pumping trends and describe specific, research-based strategies to make it possible for families with babies in the NICU and those who choose to pump and bottle feed to most effectively build a healthy milk supply.  I will also share what the research tells us about how often and long to pump to keep milk production steady over the long term and ways to customize pumping plans based on an individual's breast storage capacity, a physical difference that varies from person to person. But these families need more than reliable facts. They also need emotional support, so I will include what pumping families want so that we can become the champions they need most.
