Having an infant or toddler that is struggling with taking a bottle or eating solid foods is very stressful for families. At Step by Step our OT’s and ST’s have extensive specialized training in feeding. We work with babies that are having difficulty with latching and all other aspects of bottle feeding. We have experience with cleft pallet and with transitioning from the ng or g-tube to oral feedings, cup drinking and purees and table foods.
We also work with children that have sensitivities to different foods, selective eaters, difficulty moving from purees to table foods, poor weight gain, food related behaviors and anxiety and decreased independence in self feeding. We help coach families during meal times, offer strategies and also have a nutritionist on the team that can offer support.
