Christine Staricka, BS, IBCLC, RLC, CCE
Lactation Skills for Supporting Dyads with Oral Restrictions
United States Christine Staricka, BS, IBCLC, RLC, CCE

Christine Staricka is an IBCLC and certified childbirth educator with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management. Her work in Bakersfield, CA area hospitals has encompassed inpatient and outpatient clinical consultation, ongoing staff education, and work toward Baby-Friendly certification. She is an experienced NICU, postpartum, and outpatient lactation consultant. In 2013, Christine co-founded a professional lactation education group called California Advanced Lactation Institute which has trained more than 100 individuals in basic breastfeeding management and preparation for the IBCLC exam. In 2014, Christine and 2 other IBCLCs opened California’s first licensed Baby Cafe location. Baby Cafe provides free breastfeeding support and IBCLC care in a welcoming and non-medical environment; it is a non-profit service which operates on in-kind donations and Christine and the IBCLC team volunteer their clinical services. Baby Cafe also provides the only venue in Kern County which allows individuals to obtain supervised clinical hours toward the IBCLC exam in a non-employment setting. In 2013 she and her local colleagues created Central Valley Lactation Association (CVLA), a chapter of USLCA, to coordinate efforts to support lactation professionals in California’s Central Valley. Christine met her husband of over 20 years while both were serving in the US Navy and they are the proud parents of 3 amazing daughters.

Objective 1: Identify 3 problems of lactation which are commonly reported in dyads where babies have or are suspected to have oral restrictions.

2. Objective 2: Describe 2 categories of lactation problems which may be observed in these dyads.

3. Objective 3: Explain 3 lactation-supportive routines and anticipatory guidance which might be recommended to a dyad in this population.

United States Christine Staricka, BS, IBCLC, RLC, CCE
Abstract:

A growing body of work supports the lactation care provider in assessing, referring, and infant feeding after a revision of oral restrictions; far less has been said regarding ongoing lactation care when revision is not part of the plan in the short- or long-term. Whether because revision services are unavailable, inaccessible, or not desired by parents, the dyad that includes a baby with non-revised oral restrictions will require a customized plan to avoid problems of lactation related to infants with oral restrictions. This presentation will equip the lactation care provider with tools to support the identified population of dyads where the infant has or is suspected to have oral restrictions. (These tools shall include: a review of situations which might lead a dyad to be considered part of this specific population; a comprehensive understanding of the categories of potential problems of lactation associated with this population; and the creation of a lactation care plan with clinical skills specifically designed to consider and address the needs of a dyad in this population along the entire spectrum of normal lactation.) Lactation care providers in any setting and with any level of training will benefit from this review of the issue as it offers a deeper understanding of why particular tools, techniques, and routines might be required for this population as compared with other populations of dyads.

United States Lori L. Overland, M.S., CCC, C/NDT, CLC
Abstract:

This session will focus on functional assessment and treatment of tethered oral tissue in the breastfeeding infant. Participants will understand the importance of task analysis of the motor skills to support sucking, prior to referring an infant for a release. Post op treatment has focused on active wound management (Ghaheri, B. 2017) rather than neuromuscular re-education. This approach multidisciplinary approach encourages lactation consultants to partner with body works specialists and speech pathologists to develop the underlying motor skills to support sucking.

1. Increase competence of discussing with a parent the infant’s breastfeeding journey from latch, suck, swallow, breathe and how tethered oral tissues can impact this experience.
2. Understand how to help parents develop a plan to optimize infant’s breastfeeding and support them in making the step-by-step journey to optimal infant oral development.
3. Develop a framework of integrative coaching when parents exhibit resistance based on misunderstanding from primary care providers regarding evaluating, diagnosis, management and treatment of tethered oral tissues.

United States Tamara Hawkins, RN, FNP, IBCLC, LCCE, CHHC
Abstract:

Trending in lactation consultants’ conversations are concerns of parents choosing not to release tethered oral tissues, declining structural realignment work, choosing frenotomy providers that are not on preferred consult lists, and experiencing less than desired outcomes or breastfeeding cessation. How can IBCLCs support families that might otherwise be ambivalent to body work, releasing restrictions, and follow up to ensure continuity of care and breastfeeding success? In this talk, we will explore the journey of holistic lactation care starting from a functional feeding assessment to helping parents reach a self-imposed goal of breastfeeding success with babies that have tethered oral tissues.

Objective 3. To be able to identify 3 sensory systems that are affected by oral ties and activities to promote normal movement patterns to support these sensory systems.

Objective 4. Discuss the importance of a team approach when assessing and caring for the tongue tied infant.

United States Brandi Benson, DC, CACCP
Abstract:

Oral ties are often diagnosed and released during infancy to improve the breastfeeding relationship between mother and baby. But what happens if ties go undiagnosed? This course will review tethered oral tissues and their relationship in a breastfeeding dyad and the neurodevelopment of an infant and beyond. We will explore the implications of oral restrictions on the myofascial system throughout the body. Movement patterns, posture, and primitive reflex integration can all be affected by oral ties. Signs, symptoms, assessment tools, and strategies for co-management between IBCLC and bodyworkers will be discussed. Attendees will also learn neuro-biomechanical implications of TOTs beyond breastfeeding. Several case studies will be discussed and how successful management can be achieved with a team approach.

Objective 2: Discusses the need for further investigation of study of Infant Pain post frenotomy.

Objective 3: Supporting techniques to pain management that supports self-regulation.

India Effath Yasmin, MA, HDSE, CLEC(USA), IBCLC, BCST(ICSB-SWISS)
Abstract:

Ankyloglossia (tongue tie) impacts and can impair normal oral function in infants leading to a myriad of complications with breastfeeding. Increased awareness of this impact has led to increased diagnosis and treatment of tongue tie through frenotomy/frenectomy. These procedures are typically completed using one of two tools: scissors or laser and sometimes cautery. While the methods are equally effective when completed by a competent practitioner, the blood coagulation of the surgical incision made by a laser is cited as an major advantage in laser surgeries along with great advantage of visibility at the surgical site by the surgeon. Therefore laser release is widely perceived as superior to scissors in the recent development in LASER FRENECTOMIES.

There has been very little research that has been published on the post-procedural effects of surgical tool used. In her practice, the author has noted significant and consistent patterns in post-procedure pain, correlating to which tool is used for the release. This presentation attempts to highlight that it is critical we study the scale of pain experienced by infants post frenotomy in correlation to tool of surgery since Pain affects babies' nervous systems potentially changing the structure and physiology of the nervous system and be a cause of problems with sleep, feeding, and self-regulation. The Author will review specific data measurements that demonstrate these patterns, and present a theory for potential reasons of prefering one tool over the other for low risk Infant Frenotomies.

The Compensatory Mechanics of Suck for Babies with Oral Tethering: How to Identify and Treat after Revision
USA Ellen Chetwynd, PhD, MPH, BSN, IBCLC

Ellen Chetwynd PhD MPH RN BSN IBCLC is a breastfeeding researcher, lactation consultant, and advocate. Her goal is to provide excellent care that is innovative and effective. Her clinical care is equally informed by, and leads to, her research and collaborations with fellow scientists. She is an advocate of breastfeeding families of all shapes, as well as the providers who care for them. Through her work as Chair of the North Carolina Breastfeeding Coalition she has contributed to the statewide work to provide Medicaid reimbursement in North Carolina, successfully funded a project to support clinics seeking to become breastfeeding friendly and increase access to equitable support of breastfeeding, implemented a statewide breastfeeding summit, and created an interactive statewide resource listing for breastfeeding resources at the county level. In her lactation consulting work, she is sought out by parents and clinicians for her work with difficult cases of pain and dysfunctional infant suck. She is a prolific writer, and her research and publications cover topics including breastfeeding and metabolic health, reimbursement for lactation consulting, LGBTQI+ families, and breastfeeding research methodology. She recently created and co-taught a full day workshop on breastfeeding research methods, and gets fired up about the numbers behind what we do to support families. At Next Level Lactation LLC, she and her partners provide advanced lactation educational opportunities.

1. Describe suck mechanics

2. Identify compensatory suck mechanics used by babies with oral tethering

3. Demonstrate techniques for identification and treatment of compensatory suck mechanics

USA Ellen Chetwynd, PhD, MPH, BSN, IBCLC
Abstract:

Babies with oral tethering don't have access to the full range of motion needed to create negative pressure at the back of their mouths so they can draw milk out of the effectively and painlessly. We can all assess the latch, but what is happening with the tongue, the breast and nipple, and the other muscles involved in the mechanics of suck after the baby’s mouth closes over the breast? How do we identify compensatory mechanisms convince babies to change them with the broader mobility they have after frenotomy? This presentation will teach participants how to visualize/experience normal infant suck. Compensatory suck mechanisms are the techniques that infants use during feeding when they don’t have access to adequate movement in their tongue and floor of their mouth. Infants are creative, and the strategies they develop are varied. Participants will learn how to identify and categorize compensatory mechanisms and use clinical skills to differentiate and assess muscle tension related to overuse and suck mechanics at the breast. A unique set of clinical techniques that can be used by the lactation consultant and taught to the mother addressing each category of compensatory suck mechanics will be introduced and illustrated through case studies.

The Impact of Tongue-Tie on the Musculoskeletal and Nervous Systems

Dr. Sharon A. Vallone is a graduate of Rutgers University (AB Microbiology 1978) and New York Chiropractic College (1986). She completed her Diplomate in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics in 1996 through Palmer College and received her appointment as Fellow in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics in 2003. Dr. Vallone has a private practice limited to high risk pregnancies and challenged children in Connecticut and is currently the Chair of the Board of Kentuckiana Children’s Center in Louisville, KY and past Vice Chair of the International Chiropractic Association’s Council Pediatric Council. She is an international speaker, author, and editor of the Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics. Sharon brings 33+ years of pediatric chiropractic experience with a primary interest in pregnancy, birth trauma, breastfeeding and problems with infant /toddler neurodevelopment.

Objective 1: Describe altered biomechanics when tethered oral tissues are present and how they affect breastfeeding efficiency

Objective 2: List and describe common biomechanical compensations when tethered oral tissues are present

Objective 3: Discuss why addressing and correcting dysfunctional biomechanics can promote better outcomes when intervening with a release of tethered oral tissues.

Abstract:

The impact of tethered oral tissues on the fascial system of the neonate can be the origin of both successful and unsuccessful compensatory biomechanical alterations in an attempt to breastfeed. These biomechanical alterations can manifest as asymmetries in appearance and function as well as in behavioral challenges ranging from sleep disturbance, colic like symptoms and inconsolable crying. It is important to understand these issues when looking at the whole picture so as to improve outcomes when surgical interventions are required. The goal of this lecture will be to support the attendees with understanding the relationship between structure and function and how this ties in with physical limitations like tongue and lip tie, the biomechanical assessment and discussion of manual therapies available to assist the breastfeeding dyad.

4. List the links between infant compensatory behaviour as a result of tongue tie and potential soft tissue dysfunctions that can manifest across the life-span

5. Recognize some basic parameters of jaw and dental appearance in patients under the age of 5 and utilise this toward feedback of methods in the assessment of the neonate

Australia Marjan Jones, BDSc (Hons) UQ, BSc Melb
Abstract:

Michelangelo at work - Tongue Tie and Orofacial Myofunctional Development

Our oral and facial muscles are the master sculptors of our jaws and face. Research and clinical findings show that changing resting oral posture and functional habits of our oral and facial muscles not only influence structure but also affect function. The important functions of the orofacial region include breathing, eating/drinking (including breastfeeding) and speaking.

Breastfeeding is the premier and pivotal determinant of orofacial myofunctional habits. Beyond the many risks of not breastfeeding, malocclusion (poorly positioned jaws and teeth) is a very significant risk. As such it is important that all health practitioners working with neonates rally to educate, accompany and support breastfeeding dyads toward functional and breastfeeding for as long as possible.

The tongue’s ability to move (particularly to elevate) affects breastfeeding biomechanics. As such, a tethered tongue’s range of motion and span of influence is a deviation from the physiologic norm. Teaching a dyad to compensate or simply manage through sub-optimal breastfeeding and its resulting symptoms can have consequences in functional outcomes later in life. Compensations have consequences that emerge well beyond breastfeeding years.
