Breastfeeding and the Development of the Infant Microbiome
BREASTFEEDING AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE INFANT MICROBIOME
Every day, registered dietitians work with patients that are fighting chronic diseases and disorders; most of which can be related to an unhealthy microbiome. As dietitians we need to be more aware and supportive of the preventative measures that combat disease states--including breastfeeding. In this webinar, we will learn more about breastfeeding in general, effects of formula and solid foods on the infant microbiota, and how to better support and normalize breastfeeding in our everyday contacts.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Understand the importance of exclusive breastmilk for the infant microbiome.


  • Practice support and normalization of breastfeeding within daily contacts.


  • Differentiate human milk diet in comparison to bovine based formula diet on future comorbidities risk.


  • Design breastfeeding friendly policy and procedure in the work place.
