Advancements in Neurodevelopment: MNRI® for feeding in babies 0-6 months. Parents’ cases of feeding challenges in early childhood.

In cases of dysfunction or pathology, intervention using the MNRI® techniques from day one of life will provide the greatest chance of transforming an abnormal developmental trajectory and maladaptive mechanisms toward re-routing the neurodevelopmental pathways for normalization. This lecture underscores this concept by exploring the maturation of oral motor reflexes in babies ages 0 to 6 months, including an overview on primary reflexes in the context of oral motor development. A brief discussion on how primary reflexes work in synergistic ways during neurodevelopment is provided. Selected MNRI®I techniques to facilitate the progression of oral motor reflexes are demonstrated.

This lecture explores some of those interventions through the case of three parents, whose babies were born with a genetic disorder and faced a number of challenges in the NICU. {Neither child received the MNRI® / Masgutova Method® early in life, and only one did later in life, as knowledge of the method was not available at that time. After working through a number of different approaches, with little to no change, these parents experienced significant improvements in the child’s feeding skills upon beginning MNRI® / Masgutova Method® when the child was older.}
