I sat in feeding clinic with Bray and wondered will he ever start eating solid food?! We are literally taking the same thing that is in his bottle (vanilla pediasure + stage 2 bananas) and putting it on a spoon - nothing!
We still have some options on the list to try, but so far we have had little response. With everything, you have your good days and your bad days. Once you've tried something for an extended period of time and have more bad days than good...time to change it up.
So, we know that Bray has some pretty serious sensory issues. We're starting to address those. The biggest being routine - mainly bedtime routine. No TV, music, playing, etc. while getting ready for bed. Kiddo is so easily distracted and the slightest thing stimulates him.
We are trying something new in the food department, as well. Siracha Hot Sauce! Yes, you read correctly.
Back note: Bray's bottle has to be heated up for 40 seconds before he'll even think about drinking it. It's oddly hot for a bottle, but that's the only way we can get him to take it!I
In some cases, certain kids have a taste for extreme foods! Siracha is better to try since it's an instant hot and doesn't linger. Who knows..maybe he likes his food spicy, and he's tired of getting these old bland bananas! I can only hope :)
I'm really hoping that I can read back on these posts soon and just laugh.....at the moment, I feel I could rip my hair out!
