Pediatric Nurse Practitioners at NAPNAP Get the HUG - Workshop Evaluation

 Pediatric Nurse Practitioners are highly trained professionals. Nevertheless, I was asked to present "Unlatched: Teaching Child Development to Extend Breastfeeding Duration" at their annual conference.   I was delighted to see that PNPs were eager to learn about ways that a child's development impact breastfeeding duration. And most exciting, these PNPs will change their practice based on what they learned at this workshop.
Workshop Objectives:
  • Describe Dr. T. Berry Brazelton’s theory of child development.
  • Describe developmental events and two changes in breast milk production (birth to one year) that are often misunderstood by mothers to be a breastfeeding problem. 
  • List four educational resources that can be used to enhance mother’s knowledge of normal developmental events and breast changes during the first year of a baby’s life.
