Fussy Feeding

It can be hard to understand why your baby stops feeding. Many things may be the trigger- illness, discomfort from the feed, (vomiting, pain, allergy) choking, as well as your anxiety this behaviour may create.

But whatever started it, it is important to stop any force-feeding, persistent feeding, (over 45 minutes) or constantly offering the feed.

Parenting Matters is experienced in assisting with the transition back to 'normal' feeding.
