Bon Appe-teat! Strategies for Managing Nutrition During the First Year of Life
Hope K Lima, PhD, RDN, IBCLC
When families are unable to exclusively breastfeed, supplementation with formula may be medically necessary. While any infant formula can meet the minimum nutritional standards for an infant, it is important for IBCLCs to be able to guide the families that they work with on choosing an appropriate infant formula to use for supplementation. Considerations when counseling families on formula supplementation include current infant nutritional status and health history, infant nutritional needs, and infant sensitivities or allergies. This presentation will provide the necessary information for screening infant nutritional status, choosing an appropriate formula for supplementation, and adjustments families can make once complementary foods are introduced.
