How does your LO eat? Are they breastfed, bottle fed ot tube fed? If they're older, do they eat solids and feed themselves?

Danny's on a straw sippy and baby food now. He started out on IV, then moved to tube, then to bottle, then to breast, then back to bottle, and finally to sippy. LOL. He followed a normal progression of solids up to stage 2/3 baby food but is not accepting table solids and will not feed himself.

Hmmm...all of the above? Milo is unable to breastfeed, but I've pumped since he was born. He gets that in a bottle (IF he eats at all) or in his tube. We're trying to introduce solids little by little, but he's just not very interested in food to begin with, so we're not pushing-just whatever, whenever!

Carter is 17 months, so past the breast. He does still drink 3 bottles a day of pediasure but uses a sippy cup for everything else, he can just get the pediasure out of the bottle easiest and hey, I didn't think my 17 month old would be using a bottle, but he NEEDS the calories and nutrients.

He eats the rest of his food from a spoon fed by me, he likes to help, but is not too good at self feeding right now.

We are also in feeding therapy as he has low muscle tone, including his mouth and tongue and we're working on that so that he can learn to eat more foods and learn how to chew.

bottle & baby food fed by me. He won't practice chew with stage 3 but we're trying. Therapy is working with him.

Stacy, Ava is where Luke is. Nothing thicker than stage 2. She has her swallow study this week, so I'm interested to hear what they say. I have to take in foods she has a hard time eating.

Is there an all of the above?

We did non-nutrative sucking for Kyle (also helped me with milk supply). I pumped, and we concentrated his breastmilk with Formula, until he was eventually on 100% formula. He received his milk by NG, bottle & eventually just g-tube. He's 5 now, and has finally started taking water by mouth again (none too soon, with summer coming).
