Evidence-based guidance for safe sleep

LER Logo
Price: $24.00 USD

Infant sleep — it’s one of the topics new parents will ask you about the most. And because sleep is intimately connected to feeding, it’s also a key part of your clients’ lactation success. Opinions and information abound, but you will want to provide only evidence-based, context-specific, family-centered counsel on this important topic.

In this course, Dayna Hall, BS, IBCLC, ICCE, ATC, prepares you with the information you need. A Biologist/Lactation Consultant, Hall’s work is informed by her deep understanding of physiologic infant feeding and sleep behaviors, as well as her diverse experiences serving families in settings from Washington, DC (USA) to South Africa.

You’ll come away with a valuable big-picture perspective on how infant sleep has been viewed and handled over time, as well as a thorough background and the most current research on the issue of SIDS/SUID around the world. Hall also covers safe sleep recommendations, bringing clarity to the controversy and facts about co-sleeping and bed-sharing. And, she explains the new Academy-of-Breastfeeding-Medicine-supported practice of breastsleeping, a biologically based model of sustained contact between lactating parent and infant that honors the physiology and needs of the developing human baby.

Lastly, Hall will help you develop a counseling framework for talking with lactating families about sleep that takes into account their unique context, practices, and values, so you can help them form a sleep approach that honors their experience and is safe and effective for meeting their feeding goals.
