This is more of a vent than a question. My twenty six weeker (now fourteen months actual) had a problem with oral aversion when she tried to move to solids. We started feeding therapy to address the issue. It was very successful. She will now stick just about anything in her mouth.
However, now she seems to have a problem with swallowing. She chokes and she gags when she swallows. I feel bad for her because she wants to eat solids very badly. She tries so hard to eat. She hates formula so much that she went on a feeding strike. The pediatrician recommended a switch to whole milk in order to avoid having to resort to an NG tube.
The whole thing is stressful, exhausting, and I feel bad for my little one. She has been through so much... now this. I dread just about every feeding.
Thanks for letting me vent. If anyone has any suggestions that have been successful for their baby, I'm open to them.
