I came across this feeding milestone table after reading a question on a dysphagia listserve about feeding scales. After multiple emails (to the author, website and 2 different publishers), I have yet to find anyone who can give me permission to post this article here. Therefore, I have posted the link to the chart which is on a public website, GI Motility online.
You may find this table helpful during feeding evals or for training new clinicians and students.
The table is from the following article
Table 3 – Developmental milestones and feeding skills birth to 36 months
From the following article: Swallowing and feeding in infants and young children
This table has the following credit line:
