Does anyone on here have experience With a child with feeding problems? My son was born at .30 weeks and us currently 4 1/2 months (8 weeks adjusted) and he won't eat more than 1 oz orally and the rest is through ng tube. I'm concerned that he isn't progressing and all his generic testing was fine. He spent 11 weeks and 2 days in NICU. It takes over an hour to feed him by mouth/ng and he eats every 3 hours around the clock. I think dictors are leaning towards a g tube. Thank you! #tired mom # worried mom

I had that problem with my son he was born in august due in September or October. We just had to be patient and let him want to eat he was on a feeding tube for a month but they say little boys are big babies I heard that a lot. but just lean towards the feeding tube but as soon as he gets comfortable eating he will not want anything else
