Feeding Therapy

We’ve been going since August. Twice a month because it’s expensive and far away but it’s better than nothing!!

I made myself stick with it even though we feel like we’ve seen little progress. I knew this would be a slow process. Truly we’ve spent months working on Easton biting chewy tubes, desensitizing his mouth, and getting rid of his oral defensiveness that keeps him from eating anything that’s not soft and on a spoon. He still lacks the skills necessary to move food around in his mouth.The past few sessions we’ve been successful in playing with food and even sticking in his mouth but he immediately spits it out. 

Today was supposed to be a session but since we have 14 inches of snow and counting we tried a little at home. Now typically Easton loves cereal bars but they have to be mashed up in milk and eaten with a spoon. Today mom and dad got stubborn and meant business.

Then this happened…   

   
Hooray!!!! Little man a wonderful world of food awaits you!
