Policy Regarding Babies and Children Attending the Conference While the Breastfeeding Educator Program™
Committee supports mothers breastfeeding their babies and children, and mothers are welcome to breastfeed anywhere in the conference area, feedback from previous program participants and the intensity of the program format have made it necessary to request a helper to accompany mothers and infants older than 6 months. A quiet room/area (that can also be used for expressing breastmilk) is usually available. (Check with specific program registration coordinator.)
The program accepts a limited number of registrants. If registering within two weeks of the program, please call or e-mail the sponsoring organization to determine if registration is still open.
Sponsoring agencies will mail a confirmation notice with map/travel directions. If you have not received written confirmation within two weeks of the scheduled program, please contact the sponsoring agency.
Sponsoring organizations make arrangements for conference room rates with a local hotel. Contact the specific sponsoring organization for the conference hotel telephone number.
Dressing in layers is recommended to increase your comfort when the conference room thermostat is adjusted for the comfort of the majority of participants. The room will be kept cooler than warmer. Many participants bring a pillow and/or lumbar support to increase their comfort while sitting for many hours. Since participants sit in close proximity and perfume can trigger a migraine headache in some participants, please avoid wearing perfume and scented personal care products while at the conference.
No alternations to the conference faculty or schedule are anticipated, but the program sponsors reserve the right to make changes if necessary. The sponsoring organizations and Lactation Consultant Services™ are not responsible for registrants' airline or hotel expenses in the event of a schedule change. The morning start and evening finish times, as well as the luncheon breaks are strictly adhered to each day. The breaks between sessions are somewhat flexible.
