2 1/2 Year Old Does Not Eat Solids
I just found this website and finally feel some relief that I am not alone.
My 2/12 year old son is still on a bottle and baby food. If I give him anything else, it is either refused it or he throws a tantrum. His doctor just says "Get him off the bottle". Well I wish it were that easy.
He is seeing a speech pathologist 2x a week, but her main focus has been his speech. He is about 10 months behind and has very few words for his age. He is getting evaluated for occupational therapy very shortly.
He has been unofficially diagnosed with PDD, but after doing research on my own, I truly believe his issue is a sensory disorder. When he was 4 weeks old, he had surgery on his larynx and was intubated. During this time he was scoped several times (without any anesthetic). He also had terrible GERD up until 9 months. I think this is where his problem stems from, but the tests they run for developmental disorders do not take this into consideration.
I want to make sure my son gets the correct help. I am having a hard time getting the answers I want because I do not know the right questions to ask.
Does anybody have any suggestions, advice, or similar stories, I would love to hear any feedback.
