Refusal To Eat
(East Lansing, MI)
My 11 month old daughter probably has SPD. She has stopped eating solids and we need to use a dropper to get her formula down her. She will take 1 to 2 bites of a baby food, usually a fruit, and then clamp her mouth shut. We can sneak in a bite every now and then, but feedings routinely take 30-45 minutes to get her to eat 2 servings of food.
Additionally, she is only drinking her 1st morning bottle on her own, otherwise we use a dropper to give her formula throughout the day. It is a tremendous struggle to get her to eat. We do oral stimulation, brushings, deep pressure, and tactile stimulation with various fabrics... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
