Maryland Coalition of Lactation Consultants with Cathy Watson Genna

Type: Conferences | Location: Baltimore, Maryland - USA [North-East]
12/02/2014
US/Eastern

CATHY WATSON-GENNA will be joining us to talk about her latest sucking research, latching challenges, and Bio mechanical Sucking Challenges. These are new talks for Cathy, so even if you have heard her before you won't want to miss these three new talks.

Synthesizing Sucking Research
Do babies use suction or expression during breastfeeding? What role do tongue movements play in breastfeeding? This presentation shares the various imaging studies on sucking in breastfeeding infants to build a coherent picture of how the tongue and oral structures work in normal sucking. Includes the ultrasound research on tongue-tied babies. Children with posterior tongue-tie (ankyloglossia that affects the mid and/or posterior tongue) show a disorganized pattern of tongue mobility before frenotomy and a more organized wave of tongue movement after.

Facilitating State Control in Non-Latching Infants -(Reducing the baby’s Stress with Latching Challenges)
Maintaining neurobehavioral organization in dyads that are struggling with latching difficulties is a challenge for lactation professionals. Maternal interpretations of infant behavior and signs of frustration can affect her motivation to breastfeed and available psychosocial resources. This presentation explores how lactation consultants can scaffold maternal functioning by providing support, interpreting and framing normal infant behaviors, and modeling and teaching ways to scaffold the infant’s organization to improve the dyad’s ability to work through breastfeeding difficulties.

Using Supportive Techniques for Biomechanical Sucking Challenges
Misalignment of oral structures, poor strength and coordination due to neurological problems and other biomechanical challenges can reduce sucking effectiveness. This presentation introduces the basics of biomechanics that are applicable to breastfeeding and then details specific techniques using compensatory support (touch pressure) that can improve sucking effectiveness in infants with anatomically or neurologically based feeding difficulties.
