||Phenylketonuria and the Breastfed Infant: Assisting parents with its impact from initiation to weaning
Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder. Yet, anyone who helps a breastfeeding mother will need to understand multiple facets of this metabolic disorder—the differences between human milk and cow’s milk, the consequences if the phenylalanine is not metabolized, and how to help the mother who wants to breastfeed.
In this learning program, you’ll begin to understand your role and how to prioritize your care for the breastfeeding couplet who are facing this chronic condition from the time the baby is diagnosed until he is weaned.
The goal of this learning program is to help you assist parents of infants born with PKU to overcome the barriers to breastfeeding initiation and continuation.
