I tried to start feeding Avraam rice cereal at 4 months when the doctor gave us the go ahead and he was successful twice, then every time you tried to feed him he gags, chokes and vomits all of the milk from hours previous. We have tried to wait a couple of weeks and then try again but it just keeps happening he is now 6 1/2 months and still can’t take any consistency of rice cereal by spoon (we can put it in his bottle and have been doing so for ` 1/2 months because we needed to make sure he was getting enough calories . . . he only eats about 4 times/day because the pheno makes him go straight to sleep in the evening and not wake until later). Another issue is that he typically (every other day or so) vomits all of his first milk bottle in the morning (yesterday so much that it actually soaked through his little seat and was dripping on my floor). He has reflux and takes Zantac twice daily and I always wait at least 20 to 30 min before feeding in
the morning (no matter how famished he is ) but he is still vomitting the morning meal and sometimes last evening meal too.
On may 5 th we are supposed to see the speech therapist to do an assessment so hopefully they can help; BUT my ? is how many of you saw this type of issue in your little ones and how was it fixed, how long did it take, and what do you recommend I do. And, if you happen to have any other valuable info for this that would be great.
Overall, he is doing well . . . he is only 1 1/2 months delayed, is quite the conversationalist, loves to be around other people, LOVES showers, he is teething (one toothie), and is learning that the walker can go backwards (so cute), and he LOVES the step and play piano because of the music and rattles. So, overall he is developing well. We are still working on sitting and rolling from tummy to back but that is still within normal range, and has some issues with his torticollis still and his neck getting too tired (wallering his face while on tummy once neck gets tired) . . . so we are thrilled with all other aspects of Avraam excluding his feeding issues that I just need to figure out how to get a handle on. O’ he has NOT had a seizure in 2 months!!! YEAH!!!
O’ I will upload some new pics soon, he just had some done and is soooooo cute!
