Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Describe the clinical ramifications of new histological findings about the lingual frenum
Objective 2: Did this continuing education activity meet the learning objective: List two potential ways alteration in structural integrity or neurological control of the infant’s body can produce feeding challenges
Objective 3: Detail at least 3 techniques to help infants with medically based challenges to breastfeed more effectively
Objective 4: Describe the proper use of two breastfeeding tools that are particularly appropriate in infants with feeding challenges
