My son is going on 11 months still with a g tube. To make a long story short he was born with a diaphragmatic hernia, and was incubated from birth. He developed an oral aversion but I'm confident that he's over it because he puts EVERYTHING in his mout-except food!
I am desperate for help and techniques to try. At one point he loved solids but his reflux returned with a vengeance. It's now back under control but he won't try anything.
He needs feeding therapy, but until it can be arranged I want advice. Please help!
This is more complicated then just not being hungry enough. It's a medical problem, so please unless your child had a feeding problem and you know what it's like, your advice probably won't help!
