Feeding your baby can be wonderful and overwhelming. There are specific areas that can affect how well a baby is able to latch on the breast or bottle. Some important areas to look at are the neck, head, jaw and upper back. When there is tension in these areas it can make it difficult for your baby to get a successful latch. This can also cause babe to be uncomfortable and unable to relax. This can impact their feeding duration, the amount of nutrients they are getting and sometimes their ability to gain weight. We always recommend working with a IBCLC or other expert in this field to make sure all avenues are assessed for a health and successful feeding relationship.
