Tube Feeding Babies With GERD

Because reflux or GERD can be painful some babies learn to associate food with pain. In an effort to avoid the inevitable pain, they simply stop eating.  Nothing short of a feeding tube can keep these kids alive and growing properly.  If you are being faced with tube feeding your little one, you can learn more here.


Starting Solids

Starting solids can be an exciting, but stressful time, especially with a refluxer or GERDling.  You can find some tips here to hopefully make this important transition go as smoothly as possible.


Oral Aversions

Severe food and oral aversions can develop in some babies, usually resulting in tube feeding being required. Babies that throw up alot can begin to have very negative feelings about their mouth and food. These kids get very difficult to feed as they are incredibly defensive of anything going near their mouth and they frequently don't even mouth toys and other objects like other babies.
