Today Shirley Gutkokwski will explore the team that is needed to support women so they can breasfeed their babies successfully. This means healthy babies and happy moms. Today's guest is Dr. Lawrence Kotlow is a 1972 graduate of SUNY Buffalo Dental School, and completed his pediatric dental residency at the Children's Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio between 1972-1974. Since 1974 he has had a private practice in Albany, New York. He became Board Certified in Pediatric dentistry in 1980 , and is a Fellow in the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
The topics we will cover today will include but not be limited to the breastfeeding team, why mothers need a team effort in getting their infants breastfeeding without problems for either the mom or the infants. The role of the pediatric dentist, IBCLC and cranial sacral therapist is developing the mother infant relationship during breastfeeding.
From the moment the baby is born, in a perfect world, someone on the delivery team should acess the baby for tongue or lip tie. These small issues can be easily corrected and often go unnoticed, these babies can have trouble sucking, latching on or even have failure to thrive which my be blamed on something unrelated, when infact a simple procedure can solve this issue. If a mother has an abundance of milk this may not be noticed at first and ultimately affect tooth and jaw devlopment.
Join us today to learn more about the world of breastfeeding and who on the team can support babies and moms.
