Cowichan Valley Craniosacral offers free newborn ATLFF™ screenings to assess breastfeeding challenges. Suck, swallow and breathe physiology is carefully examined when checking seven lingual frenulum functions and five appearance items. It is also a tool that differentiates true-tongue tie from faux tongue-tie. The session is informative and provides parents with resources regarding strategies and if needed, a treatment plan towards optimal success for both mother and baby in their breastfeeding relationship. It is recommended that newborns get assessed within the first week of birth because “what fires together wires together.” To book your complimentary session, visit cowichanvalleycraniosacral.com or call Christina Hamill RCST® at 250-748-5551.
