Catherine Watson Genna has been an IBCLC in private practice in NYC since 1992. She has a special interest in the anatomical, genetic and neurological influences on infant sucking skills, and writes and speaks on these topics. She serves as associate editor of Clinical Lactation. Catherine’s research includes using ultrasound and cervical auscultation to study sucking and suck:swallow coordination in infants with ankyloglossia as well as biomechanical aspects of breastfeeding. She is an avid clinical photographer and the author of Supporting Sucking Skills in Breastfeeding Infants (Jones and Bartlett Publishers,2016, 2013 and 2008) and Selecting and Using Breastfeeding Tools (Hale Publishing, 2009).

0830 - 0930 Facilitating Infant Competence: Hand Use During Latch
Most breastfeeding instruction includes strategies to prevent baby’s hands from ‘getting in the way’ during positioning and latch. Careful observation reveals that infants use their hands in predictable ways that help them find, shape, and move the breast to assist attachment. This presentation focuses on these predictable behaviours and ways to work with them and when necessary modify them to assist breastfeeding dyads.
0930 - 1045 The Non Latching Infant: Strategies for the First 48 Hours
Optimized for medical personnel in the delivery and postpartum unit, this presentation explores newborn neurobehavioral programming for breastfeeding and how it is affected by birth interventions and separation from the mother. The development of hospital feeding practices is briefly traced, and evidence-based strategies to assist non-latching infants and their mothers are detailed and illustrated with clinical photographs. Supporting milk supply, preventing hypoglycemia and hyperbilirubinemia, and post-discharge planning are included.
1045 - 1115 Morning tea
1115 - 1245 Reflux, GERD and Breastfeeding
Irritable infants are commonly diagnosed with reflux, but might also be suffering from feeding related difficulties or allergy. This presentation explores the recent research on regurgitation, reflux and GERD in infants and their relationship to feeding problems. Clinical evaluation and management of breastfeeding issues that can contribute to reflux are also covered.
1245 - 1330 Lunch
1330 - 1500 Is it the Tongue or the Breast? Teasing out the etiology of Breastfeeding Problems
Breastfeeding difficulties can be rooted in maternal and/or infant pathology or management. This presentation reviews maternal conditions associated with low milk production and infant structural issues that interfere with breastfeeding initiation, as well as interventions to optimize outcomes for affected dyads.
1500 - 1520 Afternoon tea
1520 - 1635 Good Latch, Bad Latch: Nuances of Attachment
The understanding of infant sucking has burgeoned in recent years with the continued development of cineradiographic and ultrasound techniques. A clear understanding of how infants use the tongue during breastfeeding as well as triggers for infant feeding behaviors helps the lactation consultant understand how to optimize attachment for each mother-baby pair. A wide variety of approaches to both mother and infant led attachment are illustrated by video clips from lactation consultations. Extensive clinical photos illustrate the subtle signs of suboptimal vs. optimal attachment. Includes latching to bottle nipples to support breastfeeding skills, optimizing attachment when using at-breast supplementers, and latching to nipple shields in a way that promotes direct breastfeeding in the future
