Summary:

The first year of life is unparalleled in terms of rate of growth and development for the infant. To provide the infant with the best possible start, it is essential that all nutrient needs be met and that positive and supportive feeding techniques are established. Breastfeeding is the optimal feeding for healthy newborns, so several chapters in this course focus on breastfeeding. Since maternal nutritional status influences the quality and quantity of breastmilk consumed by infants, one chapter deals exclusively with this topic. Some women choose not to breastfeed or discontinue breastfeeding before their infants are a year old. Therefore, formula feeding also is discussed in detail. The last chapter covers weaning and introducing solid foods. With review exercises and case studies, this course is designed to increase your knowledge, confidence, and competence in providing nutrition services to families with infants.

Objectives:

The course will be discontinued on December 31, 2019. Please plan to finish the course by December 30 if you wish to earn credit.
