Lactation Support/Feeding Therapy

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)
