70% of children diagnosed with ADHD actually have a treatable sleep disorder

yourmodernfamily.com Our own son’s sleep disorder was being disguised as ADHD (or even called a "behavior problem.") before we found out that he had Central Sleep Apnea. Here's how we found out.

Breastfeeding Supportive Doctors and Breastfeeding Tolerant Doctors Are Different

I've long maintained that one of the major obstacles to improving breastfeeding rates in the United States is that we don't have buy-in from doctors in this country. What may surprise many of you is the sheer number of doctors who simply don't prioritize discussions about breastfeeding with families before (or after) childbirth. This is even more true when the families aren't white or well-off. This is the reality of all aspects of healthcare in The United States, and breastfeeding education and support are no different.

Even among doctors who supposedly support breastfeeding in their practices, I will tell you that some of that isn't real. A doctor who "supports" breastfeeding is one that will troubleshoot it when problems arise. These doctors will understand and demand the input of IBCLCs in improving breastfeeding symptoms. The doctors, however, that see breastfeeding pathology develop and then are quick to recommend abandoning it aren't being supportive of breastfeeding at all. They're just tolerating it if it goes well.

When it comes to tongue tie, I get a lot of heat from primary care doctors because they feel I'm "quick to laser". What they don't know is that the dyad has already been worked up by the lactation (a mandatory prerequisite to be able to schedule with me) and symptoms haven't improved. In general, I feel that anatomical restrictions remain restricted until a release can be performed, so many strategies are just band-aids.

I will be honest that if a primary care practitioner could fix the problem and prevent the baby from getting to me, I'd be thrilled. Why? The time it takes to get from the pediatrician to me is critical time that can result in a mom completely ceasing to nurse. Papers by Ricke in 2005 and Todd in 2015 demonstrate this fact. Time is of the essence. Unfortunately, what happens on a *daily* basis is that primary care doctors supposedly check for tongue tie and dismiss it, which makes the parents think that it's not a potential issue when in fact, the doctor doesn't know how to check or what they're checking for. When someone finally figures it out, it's often too late to reverse course.

It is critical that we understand that the application of a band-aid instead of dealing with the root cause is potentially harmful:
1) Pumping and bottle feeding isn't a fix for tongue tie
2) Using formula when mom wants/wanted to breastfeed isn't a fix for tongue tie
3) Indefinitely using a nipple shield isn't a fix for tongue tie
4) Asking mom to wait and wait and wait isn't a fix for tongue tie
5) Ignoring symptoms early in breastfeeding that result in mom's loss of milk supply later and then blaming mom for "drying up" isn't fair and isn't a fix for tongue tie

Your task as parents is to figure out which doctor you have.

Up to 15 percent of children have sleep apnea, yet 90 percent go undiagnosed

medicalxpress.com Children are grossly underdiagnosed for sleep disordered breathing (SDB), which includes obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and the symptoms may be wrongly attributed to behavior issues, according to research in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association.

This simple oral appliance can assist with cessation of thumb/digit sucking as well as help create better oral function. When we show the video to toddlers while holding the MyoMunchee in front of them we often find that they just grab it off us and put it straight into their own mouths! They seem to love the way it feels when they chew on it. It encourages elevation of the tongue and discourages aberrant swallowing patterns.

As most signs of bad health start in the mouth, a good diet is important for optimal development. If a child is mouth breathing, it is important to evaluate their diet and make changes to improve their immune system.

Can you see the difference in these two images?

If a child is a mouth breather, their tongue won’t rest in the roof of their mouth, which usually affects forward growth of the lower jaw and can cause an undersized upper jaw.

Crooked teeth will often be the result.
