  • Hello and welcome to Share. I'm so sorry that you are experiencing distress right now about silent aspiration. My son was in the nicu for 99 days and had many breathing and feeding issues. That wasn't one of them though. If you feel like the doctors are rushing any decisions it is ok to seek other opinions. I hope that you get some answers with this issue and have some stress free feedings.
