The book is very readable and contains helpful figures and 'wow' boxes. This book is well written by experts in the field. It presents a step-by-step approach, with clinical examples and helpful tips. "Older and wiser, indeed! Friedberg and McClure begin their book with this acknowledgement.

You can change your ad preferences anytime. The distinction of this book is in its descriptions of feeding impairments and their therapy. Its information is specific: examples of individual infants and well- detailed problem-driven models and treatment strategies are included. The information is reinforced by illustrations, lists, and classification.

Therapists and other clinicians who deal with feeding-impaired infants will be helped by this unique book, which presents a comprehensive, multidimensional approach to feeding problems. Authors Lynn S. Wolf , M.O.T., OTR, and Robin P. Glass, M.S., OTR, assist the feeding specialist in acquiring the knowledge and skills to take an active and effective part in the assessment and management of infant feeding. They delineate the insights and skills that are being demonstrated by a growing number of occupational, physical, and speech therapists and nurses during the evaluation and care of dysphagic infants.

This manual takes a look at infant feeding and therapy in a medical context. The pertinent pediatric entities (prematurity and bronchopulmonary dysplasia, clefts and other malformations, various neurologic impairments) and evaluation methods (videofluoroscopy, endoscopy, and esophageal pH recording and manometry) are well reviewed. The distinction of the book is in its detailed descriptions of feeding impairments and their therapy-examples of individual infants and well-detailed, problem-driven models and treatment strategies. The information is reinforced by illustrations, lists, and classifications.

Ms. Wolf and Ms. Glass, who developed this professional resource out of their years of research and clinical experience treating infants with feeding and swallowing disorders, present insightful examples of mothers' concerns and problems. As well, they highlight the subtle interactions within the clinical team, as its members gain insight into the causes and mechanisms of feeding impairments.

The book, which is timely as the field of infant dysphagia is rapidly evolving, discusses techniques that enhance feeding and nutrition. These include prefeeding oral area stimulation, adaptations of nutrient density and volume, adaptation of head positioning, and choice of nipples. Even breast-feeding can be adapted. The feeding specialists described in this 475-page manual are essential in the arena of infant care.

When I read the other review, I felt it necessary to write my review. Although this book does not highlight using breast milk in place of formula, there is an entire chapter on breastfeeding. Additionally, this book is an excellent resource for therapist working in the NICU. It offers a wealth of knowledge on feeding techniques, supplies, and the physiology of nippling/SSB, just to name a few. So this book deserves five stars in my opinion as it is thorough and truly is one of the better books I have read on infant feeding.

As a Lactation Consultant, I looked forward to reading this book to learn about ways to manage feeding difficulties. This book is very easy to read and contains excellent illustrations and explanations of a vast array of oral motor functioning issues. However, I was disappointed to see that bottlefeeding was virtually the only feeding method discussed. There were rare to none examples of ways to manage breastfeeding difficulties or enhance an infants functioning at the breast. Also, when bottlefeeding was discussed, it was virtually always assumed that formula was being fed and expressed breastmilk was rarely mentioned as an option. I work with some moms whose infants have feeding difficulties due to congenital conditions/prematurity. Many of these women pump breastmilk to provide for their infants and are dedicated to attempt to get their babies directly breastfeeding. What these women and their babies deserve is for specialists like Wolf, etc. to devote their expertise to develop tools and therapies that support compromised infants in breastfeeding directly instead of assuming bottlefeeding as the "norm" for these special babies.
