CONF 2016 - The Affective Needs of Children

In this humorous but evidence-based session, Dr. Carlos González, offers a delightful, basic review of why human infants need to be near their mothers/caregivers, and why carrying and keeping infants near, even during sleep, is a developmentally appropriate response to the innate proximity-seeking behaviors exhibited by all infants. He explains from a biological and anthropological perspective why infant separation is not normal for human survival. In the words of the speaker, “Children all over the world, just like the offspring of many other species, want to be with their mothers all day (and night) long, want to be carried, and cry when separated from their mothers. But, many people in our western industrialized culture see that as abnormal. Our children are not our enemies. They want to be with us, because they love us. A lot.”

WEBINAR - New Notions in Nursing: How Parents Are Breastfeeding Outside the Box

Traditional definitions of breastfeeding revolve around a mother birthing her baby and then exclusively feeding that child at her breast for the first half year of her baby’s life.  For many families, breastfeeding according to this definition just isn’t possible.  But that doesn’t mean breastfeeding isn’t possible.  It just means we must re-define breastfeeding – expanding what it means to breastfeed in order to meet the growing and changing needs of today’s families.  When we allow “breastfeeding” to become nursing, chestfeeding, finger-feeding, and certain ways of bottle-feeding, more parents can breastfeed and more babies can be breastfed.  When we allow “breastfeeding” to mean receiving all, some, or no milk at all from baby’s mother, more parents can breastfeed and more babies can be breastfed.  When we allow “breastfeeding” to involve non-gestational mothers, fathers, gestational carriers, relatives, friends, and sometimes even strangers, more parents can breastfeed and more babies can be breastfed. This isn’t just theory: real parents are re-defining breastfeeding every day.
