Home /  Courses And Programs / LCERP: Science of Suck


In this course the head and neck anatomy of the infant is discussed and compared to adult oral anatomy. Sucking patterns are investigated and related to the transfer of milk during a feeding session. Both normal and abnormal development are looked at and that information is applied to the lactation consultation and lactation concerns. This review of the structures of the newborn and their relationship to feeding patterns will increase the assessment and triage skills of the lactation consultant.

These courses are intended for existing International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC's) looking for Lactation Continuing Education Recognition Points (LCERP's) towards re-certification by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE).

Other Credits : 6 Hours of BRN Nursing Credit. LCERPS=6
