Course Webinar: Bottle Feeding in the Outpatient Setting

Course description: In the market today, there is an abundance of baby brands selling a multitude of bottle systems without regulations. There is limited information on why bottle systems are different and what indicates use of one over another. This course teaches clinicians to identify and describe differences in bottle nipple shapes and flow rates and identify bottle appropriateness based on client specifics.

Presented by Mallory L. Millet, MS, SLP, IFS, CIMI-II

Originally presented: Monday, November 16, 2020

Mallory Millet is a mom of 3 under the age of 4, all who experienced feeding difficulties in some capacity. As a speech-language pathologist by trade, she always enjoyed working with swallowing and swallowing disorders, but with the birth of her children, her passion in working with pediatric dysphagia grew exponentially. She has worked in an outpatient clinic setting for the past 6 years increasing her feeding and swallowing knowledge while also empowering caregivers along the way during their infant feeding journeys.
