Do you help support Very Low Birthweight (VLBW) Infants in your lactation work? Or maybe you are just starting out and want to learn more about working with and how to better support premature and VLBW infants. If so, then you’ll enjoy this FREE toolkit. I can’t take credit for this find myself – it was shared in a private lactation group by Liz Brooks, JD, IBCLC, FILCA.
“The 2018 update of the Nutritional Support of the VLBW Infant Toolkit was developed to provide rapid assessment of current nutritional practices, outline evidence-based best practices, and enable rapid multidisciplinary improvement cycles to improve nutritional outcomes for premature newborns. We have added important new references, streamlined recommendations, and targeted the best resources.”

I just stumbled upon a great find with a monthly freebie and can’t wait to share. Great Lakes NetWORK Series hosts a monthly breastfeeding education webinar series where every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 1-2pm (GMT-4/EST), a FREE webinar is broadcast. Yup, you read that right, it’s FREE! CERPs (and other types of CE credit) are offered BUT only if you watch it in ‘real time.’ Click herefor more information and to register for future webinars – and make sure to check out the past webinars as well. The next one is scheduled for Tuesday, August 21 from 1-2pm (GMT-4/EST)

You can tune into the presentation titled, “Sorting the Fog through the Smoke: Marijuana and Breastfeeding” by Sekeita Lewis-Johnson, BSN, RN, IBCLC by clicking here. Since it’s recorded and not in ‘real time’ so to speak, there aren’t any CERPs awarded for this specific presentation – but you will gain knowledge and lots of it! So sit back and enjoy.
