Through my work at the Royal Children's Hospital, I have seen many babies being fed by nasogastric tubes for various reasons.
Sometimes once the need for the tube is past, we may find the baby has become dependent on the tube and is uninterested in oral or self-feeding.
In consultation with your pediatrician, I am happy to help in a weaning plan to oral drinking and self-feeding.
Most babies take to solids with no trouble! However, some babies have a difficult start with other feeding and may be reluctant and suspicious of anything new.
Do you have to follow your toddler around or use distractions so that your child will eat?
