As an SLP, my role in supporting families and their baby is to address functional feeding skills.
Oftentimes, a baby demonstrates the following:
Difficulty latching to breast or bottle
Difficulty with coordinating sucking, swallowing, and breathing
Clicking sounds while nursing
Difficulty gaining weight
Becomes tired/fatigued during feedings
Falls asleep while nursing without finishing their feed
Popping on/off nipple while feeding
Spitting up often
Milk escaping from the sides of the mouth during feeds
Sounding congested after feeding
Moms will often display symptoms of baby having difficulty including:
- Nipple damage
- Clogged ducts
- Forceful letdown
If your baby is experiencing these symptoms, please call/text to schedule an evaluation. I will conduct a thorough evaluation of your baby’s functional feeding-at breast or bottle, including assessment of oral motor skills and presence of tethered oral tissues (lip or tongue ties) that may be impacting overall feeding skills.
Milk & Honey Clinic
Milk & Honey Clinic:
This clinic is open for parents wondering how much breast milk the baby gets during a feed. Milk & Honey is a weigh-in clinic open every Wednesday. Moms can drop in anytime from 9:00-10:15 am to enjoy light refreshments, connect with other mommies who breastfeed, and get general questions answered by a Speech-Language Pathologist/Certified Lactation Counselor. Moms can weigh babies before and after a nursing session.
