The Difficult Feeder
Breastmilk is well established as optimal nutrition for nutritional, immunologic, and psychosocial child health. The ability of the newborn to latch and suckle effectively at the breast is critical to establish successful breastfeeding. Some newborns have significant difficulty, often related to anatomic and musculskelatal problems, thus requiring referral to specialists who have expertise in correcting newborn breastfeeding problems including lactation consultants, occupational therapists and physicians trained in the musculoskeletal basis of feeding dysfunction.
To address these issues, The San Diego County Breastfeeding Coalition (SDCBC) hosted a mini-seminar earlier this month for physicians and other health care providers. The purpose of this seminar is to familiarize maternal and newborn health providers with the types of expertise and interventions that different specialties—lactation consultants, occupational therapists, osteopaths—can offer and to aid in appropriate referral in order to assure successful breastfeeding.
