I was wondering if you think (or if there is a consensus) that a tongue thrusting pattern is "normal"/typical swallowing pattern up to a certain age. I have read that it is normal for babies. I have also read that it is "normal" until the age of 6. I have also read that it is never normal, and even infants that are breastfeeding do not exhibit a forward tongue motion. I feel a little confused.
