by Jacqueline Kincer, IBCLC, CSOM
  • Duration: 60 Mins
  • Credits: 1 CERP, 1 L-CERP, 1 CME, 1 Dietetic CEU
  • Handout: No
Abstract:

In this presentation, Jacqueline demonstrates how tongue tie affects proper breastfeeding, specifically the mechanics of breastfeeding such as oral grasp, tongue extension, pressure generation, and more. You'll learn how to know which problems are issues that can be corrected with targeted oral exercises, or if bodywork is needed instead. We will also cover the timeline of habilitation in the weeks following frenectomy.

Learning Objectives:

1. Explain how tongue tie creates breastfeeding dysfunction through compensations of the orofacial complex
2. Describe when to use oral exercises to correct oral dysfunction, and what things should be addressed with bodywork (and frenectomy)
3. Describe the process it takes to change brain-based feeding habits and create new motor learning post-frenectomy
