M&H start everything off with a listener question addressing a conflicting (and frustrating) tongue tie diagnosis for a now 4-year-old who’s having speech troubles.
Did you know that there are providers that work with premature infants in the NICU to teach them to feed before they even attempt a feed? These speech language pathologists (SLP) and occupational therapists (OT) are essential in preventing oral aversions and developing good eating habits in NICU babies.
These amazing women also discuss their role in supporting parents and caregivers, and how they emphasize developing strong bonds between baby and caregiver with experiences like skin-to-skin and non-nutritive sucking. It’s a sweet and caring episode.
M&H close things out with an “Award in the Alcove,” because we love you and we think you are doing great!
