Back to Basics for Cleft Lip and Palate: An Overview of Strategies to Support Lactation in the Neonatal Period and Beyond

Originally offered 2018 at our GOLD Neonatal Conference. A common misconception among care providers and families is that babies born with an oral cleft cannot breastfeed/chestfeed. This presentation corrects that misconception by exploring cleft types and their expected breastfeeding/chestfeeding outcomes and sharing tools that lactation specialists can use to more effectively support parents when their baby is born with a cleft lip/palate. In particular, during the neonatal period, the lactation specialist is uniquely positioned to support parents to make informed decisions about their feeding choices and create a going home care plan to help them achieve their breastfeeding/chestfeeding goals in the long term.
