Any tools/tricks to help tube-fed baby increase liquid volume by mouth or move to purées?
Hi All! My 7-month little girl (4-months corrected) has been tune-fed since birth. In the past she has taken up to 50% of her feeds by bottle but after bouts of reflux and Head/chest colds she now rejects taking the bottle/boob or any flow of liquid (breastmilk/neosure formula) by mouth. For months I’ve been to doctors and therapists but none have established ongoing therapy yet. So, I’m getting more proactive with helping her eat on her own by mouth. I have tried a spoon, frida pacifier/syringe combo (for medicines), 360 cup, sippy cup. The only thing that works is about an ounce through a 5ml syringe and even that take 20 minutes. Far cry from her full volume feeds that she’ll need. any suggestions would be helpful!
