Description

The Napa Valley Breastfeeding Coalition invites you to join us for this energizing talk by Dr. James McKenna, recognized as the world's leading authoring on mother-infant co-sleeping in relationship to breastfeeding and SIDs. Hear about his research at the Notre Dame Mother-Baby Behavioral Sleep Lab and the historical context of how culture and maternal-infant biology came into conflict. Learn how physiologically and behaviorally different breastsleeping is from bedsharing associated with formula or bottle feeding and how breastsleeping can potentially lessen or help prevent colic while reducing the chances of SIDs.
