In 2020 Nancy Mohrbacher published her latest book, Breastfeeding Answers, 2nd Edition. We jokingly call this book BA2 and it is one of the most important books in the field of lactation.
I was honored that Nancy was willing to co-host a professional book group with me. I had hosted two other book groups before, Making More Milk, 2nd Edition with Lisa Marasco and Supporting Sucking Skills with Catherine Watson Genna, and this format had worked really well to help me (and apparently many others!) to read the other entire book. Having a book group allowed for time discuss the findings and implications of the material, and then hopefully apply the new information into practice.
Nancy and I sat down the other day and recorded a podcast about some major shifts that have recently happened in the field of lactation that are included in her new book. One of the great things about BA2 is that Nancy has done all of the research so we don’t have to! This is so convenient for busy lactation professionals!
Here are the seven updates to the field of lactation based upon the latest research. To get the full story listen to the podcast below.
1. The research of neonatal jaundice has changed (Hint: it is not all about the poop!)
2. Rethinking tongue tie assessment. Function and symptoms are key.
3. How and when to introduce hyper allergenic foods to babies.
4. The mammary microbiome.
5. Parent obesity and how it plays into breast/chestfeeding success.
6. Prenatal hand expression. Thank you Jane Morton for helping to push this great technique forward!
7. Inclusion of LGBTQ+ folks and their needs.
