Welcome to pediatricfeedingnews! Most likely you have found yourself here because you are a parent or caregiver of a child with a feeding problem, or know someone who is. This is a very difficult problem for the child and for the family. I know how frustrating meal time can be and how much stress this can cause for a family. I also know how difficult these feeding problems can be to treat since I am a clinician treating kids with a variety of feeding problems every day. I hear from my families that they are often given conflicting information from professionals so proceeding with treatment can be confusing, time consuming, and expensive. I want to assure you that there is hope and that there are many successful treatment options available for these children. Often the younger the child is when starting therapy, the easier it is to treat. However, it is worth seeking help no matter what the age of the child.
This blog is written for professionals working with children with feeding problems,so it may seem too technical, however, you are welcome to use the site as well. I am planning on creating a parent resource that will link to this blog in the near future. Feel free to send questions through the blog or email me directly if you have questions at firstname.lastname@example.org ,
