mjheinig175Nutrition First finished hosting 4 days of trainings in Everett and Olympia in April with Dr. Jane Heinig and her team from the UC Davis Human Lactation Center. It was an information filled two day session for attendees. Included here are the slides for the Secrets to Baby Behavior Handout training. Baby Behavior messages have been successful in improving infant-feeding practices by addressing common “trigger” behaviors for overfeeding such as infant crying and waking. Attendees commented on how relevant and useful the information provided was addressing common concerns and breastfeeding barriers for new moms. They appreciated on the Day 2 -Train the Trainer session being able to gain the skills and tools needed to train the colleagues and staff to better understand basics of normal infant development and behavior and to use research-based counseling techniques that successfully drive behavior change.
