Fitting women and their babies together for enjoyable, effective breastfeeding
Do you have nipple pain or discomfort with breastfeeding? Has your baby been diagnosed with oral ties, such as posterior tongue-tie, upper lip-tie or buccal ties? Or has your baby been diagnosed with gastro-oesophageal reflux, allergy or lactose intolerance due to unsettled behaviour at the breast? Do you want to prevent breastfeeding problems down the track?
We invite you to explore Gestalt Breastfeeding before you proceed with oral surgery or medications – many families find they need to go no further.* Unidentified challenges of fit, hold and positional stability remain a common cause of problems in breastfed babies. Now our innovative Gestalt Breastfeeding program is available online to help you achieve pain-free, efficient, relaxing breastfeeds. It is based on a new model of infant suck, developed out of the latest ultrasound studies.
Gestalt Breastfeeding helps prevent or heal nipple pain, and helps babies who
- Have difficulty latching on to the breast
- Fuss and pull off or back-arch at the breast
- Refuse the breast
- Marathon feed
- Feed excessively frequently
- Are windy and unsettled with or after feeds
- Gain weight poorly**
*If your baby has a classic tongue-tie, that is, a visible membrane under the tongue which restricts tongue movement, simple scissors frenotomy may be required. For any other diagnosis of oral ties, we suggest you give gestalt breastfeeding a go before proceeding to oral surgery.
**If you or your baby have health problems, including baby not gaining enough weight, it is important to seek the help of your GP or a qualified health professional.
