About the event

The Poop Talk: Infant Gut Health: Common vs Normal

"It's normal for breastfed babies not to poop for days because breastmilk is all used up". 

This is one of the most commonly shared and staunchly-held myths that comes from as widely disparate sources as pediatricians, nurses, La Leche League, WIC, breastfeeding professionals...almost anyone whose role is to educate parents about infant health....and of course, from other parents and self-proclaimed experts all over social media.

Is this true? 

What's behind this assertion? 

What does the science reveal? 

Is this myth harfmul? 

How does this conflation between common and normal inform practice and what are the consequences to infant feeding and health? 

OBJECTIVES:

Reviews the published science related to infant gut function.

Considers how the normalization of bottle-feeding led to the conflation between common and normal. 

Illustrates how ancestral changes in the human microbiome (especially in the West) have influenced breastfeeding and infant health.

Explains how genetic variants impact the infant gut, including digestion and the establishment of the immune system. 

Discusses how these physiologic and cultural changes have adversely impacted breastfeeding.

Presents interventions that may be utilized to improve digestion and/or normalize gut health in the breastfeeding dyad.

FACULTY:

Jennifer Tow, BFA, MA, IBCLC, LMT, CSOM.

Jennifer has practiced holistic lactation and guided parents in raising their children holistically for almost 35 years. A fascination with the physiology of wellness has led her on a decades-long journey exploring the influences on infant health that come to define long-term human well-being. She has a special interest in the areas of epigenetics and the microbiome, gut-brain health, oral functional competency and airway development, exploring the profoundly far-reaching implications of this work for breastfeeding dyads.

While residing between the USA & France from 2010-12, Jennifer established an international client base and now sees most of her clients on-line, specializing in collaborating with her clients in resolving complex breastfeeding issues. With a Master's degree in Holistic Health Coaching, her reputation for guiding parents through these issues stems from her ability to integrate holistic modalities and an expanded skill-set, such as myofunctional therapy and bodywork techniques, into her practice.

She is a writer and lecturer, offering workshops internationally and via webinar on lactation & epigenetics, gut health & healing, tongue-tie & airway development and holistic lactation practices. She offers a year-long advanced course in Integrative and Holistic Lactation. She is a founding member of IATP (the International Affiliation of Tongue-tie Professionals) and founder of the Holistic Lactation Institute. 

Jennifer is the mother of three children born at home in 1988, 92 & 98 and a granddaughter born at home in 2009. She has come to deeply embrace the wisdom and humility gained from gestating, birthing, nursing and parenting these three amazing human beings.
