Feeding is so much more than the act of eating. It is also an expectation, a dance, chemistry, feelings, tradition, and expression of love. So when infant feeding challenges arise, it can feel overwhelming and worrisome on a cellular level. My approach to feeding support uniquely addresses sensory, emotional, physical, and cultural strengths of both the infant/child AND the caregiver to provide the most optimal feeding outcomes. We will work together to individualize sessions in a way that best meet your needs and that of your infant or child.
Feeding therapy supports
- Breastfeeding and bottle feeding
- “Picky eaters”
- Transitional feeding support (from breastmilk or formula to solid foods)
- Children who are tube fed, including the transition to oral feeding when appropriate
- Sensory sensitivity to foods
- Motor development of feeding skills (assisting children with chewing, gagging, swallowing, tongue mobility)
