Plagiocephaly: Causes, Solutions and Impact on Breastfeeding

Time-frame: 60-75
CERP: yes

Plagiocephaly, an abnormal asymmetrical molding of the cranial bones, can cause multiple functional issues in infants including compromising breastfeeding. Unfortunately, the incidence of this formally rare condition is on the rise affecting as many as 45% of all infants. Dr. Hazelbaker discusses the causes of the condition, explains the assessment process and presents multiple therapeutic strategies for resolving plagiocephaly derived breastfeeding problems in infants. She uses video to show both the assessment and treatment process in action.
