Babies Suck! Demystifying How Babies Breastfeed
Join Jacqueline Kincer, IBCLC, COMS as she discusses the mechanics of latching and infant feeding; the anatomy of the baby’s mouth and mother’s breast and how they work together. Anyone who works with breastfeeding mothers will benefit from this enlightening session.
This course is over 1 hour long and will help you understand the nuances of infant feeding mechanics, be able to recognize when dysfunction is present, and learn the importance of tongue function. It starts with a review of when oral function begins in the womb, then dives into the anatomy of the facial and oral muscles and nerves involved in feeding, then shows video of infants feeding and showing their movements. It discusses the latch and how and why it can go wrong. Then we cover tongue, lip and buccal ties and their impact on feeding. We also cover bottle feeding and pacifier use and how it deforms the oral cavity.
