Development of suck and swallow mechanisms in infants

No evidence-based supported guidelines are currently available for health professionals caring for these infants. Through research, a growing understanding of the development of nutritive sucking skills has emerged shedding light on how and why infants may encounter oral feeding difficulties due to the immaturity of specific physiologic functions. This review focuses on the maturation of the various physiologic functions implicated in the transport of a bolus from the oral cavity to the stomach. We have learned that each of these functions encompasses a number of elements that mature at different times and rates.
Creative music therapy for preterm infants and their parents has emerged as a promising family-integrated early intervention. We present a detailed protocol on how to use vocal interaction, humming, or singing to empower preterm infants and their families. Creative music therapy for preterm infants and their parents CMT has emerged as a promising family-integrated early intervention involving communicative musicality to improve infant development, parental well-being, and bonding. It aims at relaxing and nurturing the infant as well as promoting safety and social interaction for the parent-infant dyad. A music therapist specially trained in CMT hums or sings in an infant-directed, improvised, lullaby style continually adjusting to the individual needs, expressions, and breathing pattern of the preterm infant.
