Evidence and Best Practices to Increase the Use of Mothers’ Own Milk in the NICU: Focus on Secretory Activation and Coming to Volume - Paula Meier, PhD., RN

This presentation highlights the newest evidence that mothers’ own milk is “personalized medicine” for NICU infants, and summarizes why donor human milk feedings do not yield the same beneficial outcomes.  Given that there is no optimal substitute for mothers’ own milk, strategies to prioritize its availability in the NICU are essential.  This session targets the first two weeks post-birth as a critical period that includes secretory activation and achievement of coming to volume in breast pump-dependent mothers of NICU infants, and includes evidence, best practices and the newest ongoing research in this area.

 

Objectives:  

  • Cite evidence that mothers’ own milk is personalized medicine and that donor human milk feedings result in different gut microbiota and select metabolic pathways in premature infants.
  • Summarize the physiology of secretory differentiation, secretory activation and coming to volume.
  • Explain the potential utility of mothers’ own milk biomarkers of secretory activation in managing lactation processes in breast pump-dependent mothers of NICU infants.
  • List 4 strategies for prioritizing NICU lactation care practices during the first two weeks post-birth.
