Clinical Case Studies: Ankyloglossia in Babies With Marasmus and Kwashiorkor
Successful breastfeeding depends on an infant’s latching onto the mother’s breast correctly. A poor latch will cause insufficient milk transfer that will cause poor growth. Each type of mammals produces different components of milk which make it species specific, which adjust to their needs, growth rate and breastfeeding habits. Human breast milk has many benefits for human babies because it contains various substances both as nutrition and as protection. The authors present two infants who suffered ankyloglossia, which hindered the baby’s ability to breastfeed and eat solid food. These babies were diagnosed with marasmus and kwashiorkor (severe malnutrition). After revision of both the lip- and tongue-ties, supplementation with pasteurized human milk donor, and good complimentary feeding the babies finally reach an optimal growth and development. Learn more about how these two cases were managed to bring the babies back to health.
