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.

Learning Objectives:

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.
