Abstract: Diving into the Nuances of Clinical Sucking Skills: Bridging Infant Oral Function and Breast Physiology

Dive into the heart of breastfeeding success with this comprehensive presentation exploring the nuanced landscape of clinical sucking skills. This talk will delve into the physiological essentials underpinning successful breastfeeding. The interaction between infant mouth mechanics and maternal breast physiology takes center stage, underscoring the pivotal role of establishing a proper latch. It is crucial to understand the obstacles to good sucking skills and learn ways to detect problems early. Knowing which interventions to use to correct problems and how to craft individualized care plans for optimal results is a skill all providers can use to support breastfeeding dyads. This talk amplifies the importance of not only the IBCLC's role as a coordinator within the healthcare team, but also ways to empower parents through practical strategies that make them active participants in optimizing their baby's sucking skills for breastfeeding success.
