  Lactose and the Breastfed Infant: Congenital, Transient, or Overload?

$21.00



Overview:
You’ve heard it so many times. “The baby is lactose intolerant. The mother just needs to stop breastfeeding.” Yet, the incidence of congenital lactose intolerance is so rare that its incidence—although not calculated—is thought to be “in the tens or hundreds worldwide ever.” Why then, has this diagnosis become a false barrier to breastfeeding? And since newborns or young infants can experience transient lactose intolerance, what’s the difference between congenital lactose intolerance and transient lactose intolerance? What’s lactose overload? Are any of these 3 conditions the same as oversupply of mother’s milk, cow’s milk allergy, colic, or colitis? The goal of this learning program is to enable to learner to promote the collection of data or the use of treatment strategies that preserve and optimize the breastfeeding relationship which, in the overwhelming majority of cases, is supported by the existing evidence. Exam-type questions, similar to those found on a certification exam, are included.

  • Aspiring lactation consultants
