My 16 mo (EBF) DS will not eat solid foods....ever. We've been offering BLS style since around 6 mo. He use to gag and throw them up if it got in his mouth, now he just flat out refuses everything. He will drink water but not juice, milk etc. We've literally offered every type/texture of food that is out there. The GP has got us going to a speech therapist for the past 4 months with no improvement (at all). We've also seen a GI specialist who wants to do a crazy invasive procedure...an upper GI endoscopy with esophogeal biopsies and pancreatic stimulus test (which we are not having done) We also are suppose to be getting an evaluation done at a feeding clinic at a local childrens hosp but the waiting list is 6+months for an appt. DS nurses ALL. THE. TIME. Every 1-2 hrs and every 3-4 at night just like a newborn and I work part-time so pumping enough milk is so stressful. My gut feeling is just that he will start eating one day and thats it....but I also don't want something to be medically wrong with him that we aren't treating. My other worry is subjecting him to all this medical testing and NOT getting any answers and making it worse.
Anyone been through this....or have any advice??
