Feeding Shouldn't Be Stressful.
When people ask how they know when it's a good idea to get a feeding evaluation. I always start by answering this:
If mealtimes are stressful for you, your child, or your family, it's a good idea to reach out to a feeding therapist for support!
Yes, even if your child is getting adequate nutrition and is not underweight. Feeding is not supposed to be stressful. and that's enough of a reason to reach out for evaluation. So if something doesn't feel right about your child's feeding. Don't just wait and see, reach out for support.
