Back to Baseline: Normal Anatomy & Physiology of Infant Feeding
We propose a talk that outlines the anatomy and physiology of normal infant feeding. Our talk will cover the basic functions of infant muscle groups recruited for latching, sucking, swallowing, and drinking human or artificial milk. We believe that if lactation professionals understand normal physiology as it pertains to muscle groups, they will better be able to educate and help the families our profession serves. At the end of this talk, the lactation professional will be able to establish a baseline for normal muscle function when evaluating the breastfed infant. We will use multiple learning modalities to outline and explain the essentials of muscle function in the breastfed infant.
