  • Duration: 60 Mins
  • Credits: 1 CERP, 1 L-CERP
  • Learning Format: Webinar

Breast is best! We all know that; however, often parent and child struggle so much at the beginning that breastfeeding either isn’t possible or the parent becomes discouraged and gives up. When feeding challenges occur, sometimes the problem is not with the mother’s technique, but rather with the baby himself- barriers within the alignment and tone of his body causing abnormal function and preventing normal breastfeeding. There can also be tethered oral tissues present (tongue or lip ties) causing even more dysfunction. This presentation focuses on: (1) why breastfeeding is best- nutritionally and neurologically; (2) The cause of imbalance- The birth process; (3) the importance of the integrative collaboration of therapists- i.e. the LC, DDS, chiropractor and/or cranial therapist.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe specific nutritional benefits of breastmilk vs. formula feeding.

2. Describe the presence and origins of infant structural imbalance and it’s implications on breastfeeding dysfunction.

3. Explain the importance of an integrative approach to care.
