Introductions and Establishing the Value of Integration
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.

Nitty Gritty Anatomy: The Cranium, Supporting Structure and the Muscle Layer
Understanding the specific infant anatomy related to feeding function can unlock the mystery of why the baby is struggling and how to correct the problem. You will see very comprehensive video demonstration of normal function and easy to understand diagrams of common subluxation patterns. This presentation focuses on: (1) The infant cranial and spinal anatomy piece by piece and how it all interacts together; (2) The main muscles of breastfeeding function; (3) clinical presentations of common feeding challenges explained through the anatomy; and (4) correlations into other common infant pathologies of torticollis and Otitis Media.

Cranial Nerves, the Dural System and Neurology
Biology often explains it all. Beyond the cranial and Musculo-skeletal system, the cerebral spinal/dural system and the cranial nerves play a huge roll not only in feeding function, but in the overall physical and cognitive health of the child. These systems are reciprocal- the structural system can cause neurological impairment; and likewise, neurological impairment can lead to structural imbalance and weak muscles. Many different therapeutic disciplines acknowledge this relationship in different ways. This presentation focuses on: (1) the cranial nerves specific to breastfeeding function; (2) The dura and CSF (cerebral spinal fluid) systems; (3) clinical presentations: Failure to thrive, colic, KISS/KIDD (4) Studies and articles from various approaches of care; and (5) the consequences of Cesarean Section on CSF and neuropathology.

Tying It All Together- Consequences of Pathology and Ideal Collaboration
How does it all fit together- the cranium, the spine, the muscles, the cranial nerves and the dural system? In addition to their involvement in breastfeeding function, there can be serious long-term consequences to the child if pathology is not corrected. Learn why IBCLCs and other medical professionals recommend a collaborative approach to care for the very best outcomes. This presentation focuses on: (1) Sphenobasilar dysfunction and hydrocephaly; (2) neurological consequences of pathology and adaptation; (3) breastfeeding challenges from the LC scope correlated to structures; (3) tethered oral tissues- Importance of a collaborative approach; (4) best practice collaboration from the viewpoint of an IBCLC.
