Course Description and Overview
We know as feeding therapists, the most impactful thing a caregiver can do is to feed, nurture, and grow their children. This is a foundation for bonding and relationship building. When that relationship goes awry due to feeding issues or difficulties, it can become overwhelming, if not even traumatic. Supporting the infant from the very beginning at the breast is important for building this caregiver/baby relationship. In this course, participants will learn to critically evaluate different factors affecting feeding including the normal anatomy and physiology of the milk making process, barriers of milk production, co-morbidities involving feeding including pre-term birth, and gastrointestinal difficulties/anomalies. Participants will also be provided with information for the collection of objective data to evaluate the breastfeeding dyad and provide guidance or reassurance for the families they serve.
