Anyone have a J tube feed baby with oral feeding success?!?

[deleted account] ( 1 mom has responded )

Our daughter is 16 months old now but born 16 weeks early and spent 8 months in the hospital. She has a J tube and is on a ventilator. We have been working with OT weekly on feeding with very slow progress. Sometimes things go great and other times she goes way back and doesn't seem to want to eat at all. I'm looking for any suggestions and success stories that might help or encourage. Thank you!

My daughter Olivia is now 6 years old. She is just starting to eat by mouth after years of feeding therapy. Just keep up the good work Mama, she'll get it someday. How's her gastric emptying?
