Les difficultés d’allaitement chez le nourrisson porteur de trisomie 21 et les pistes thérapeutiques

Abstract : This literature review presents the breastfeeding difficulties encountered by mothers of children with Down Syndrome 21. The main difficulties identified are as follows: weak sucking, drowsiness, overall hypotonia, lack of mobility of the perioral and chewing muscles, narrow oral cavity. Despite these difficulties and considering the large benefits for the child and mother, it seems essential to support those mothers in order to initiate and/or maintain breastfeeding. Indeed, one of the main obstacles to breastfeeding according to those mothers is the lack of support and guidance from health professionals. The speech and language therapist could be a privileged interlocutor for the care of those children, integrated in a multidisciplinary care.
