Growth Failure - A New Roadmap for a Common Problem
Once an infant has been flagged as having growth failure, everyone is on high alert - especially parents. As health professionals, we know it's important to take great care in how these cases are addressed.
Are there new tools available to help guide us in our management of infants with growth failure? Thankfully, yes!
Join us for a case study on baby Lloyd. He's a 9-month old little one fed breastmilk, formula and solids who isn't growing as expected. We'll take you through a new growth failure roadmap for infants like Lloyd and share our best practices and tips.
If you're new to pediatrics (or you want to be working in peds!), or want to update your practice, this webinar for you.
This webinar is for you if:
✔️ You have limited prior exposure to infant nutrition
✔️ You feel unsure how to sensitively address growth concerns with parents
✔️ You lack training and/or access to experienced pediatric dietitians
✔️ You want to ensure you don't miss any key questions in your assessment
As a pediatric dietitian, referrals for infants with growth concerns are not ones we need to go digging for. These babies cross our paths regularly. The healthcare team is on high alert and parents are usually wondering where they went wrong. These cases require a great degree of sensitivity and compassion.
In the case of baby Lloyd, his growth is faltering and interest in solid foods is minimal.
Now is the time to dig deeper and determine the root cause.
Combining our years of experience and the most recent evidence and tools, we'll let you in on the questions we ask, our recommendations and alternatives we consider.
