I'm the mother of a 17 year old. We're so happy things have gotten better. Our son never sucked a bottle or pacifier. He had a feeding tube. We never had to worry about him picking up anything & put it in his mouth. We went through years of Occupational, speech & physical therapy. For years he screamed through a bath & having his teeth brushed. He still doesn't like sunscreen, lotion, chapstick, nothing with a flavor or smell. We can't change his soap or shampoo. He has learned to swallow his medicine in pill form.
