i have a little girl brianna whose almost 10 months, been tube fed since she was 2 months due to aspirating problems. now that her problems have healed up she refuses to drink from a cup or bottle when she does she spits it and doesnt know she has to swallow it and she wont spoon feed. has anyone had simliar problems or had tube fed babies for an extended period of time? any suggestions on feeding, getting her to drink, weight gain, teaching her to sit up/crawl, and getting her to hold down her feeds? im a young mum and would very much appreciate any advice.
