I am having ongoing issues with DS2's weight gain, amount he eats and the types of food he eats. He has recently turned one and was classed as failure to thrive at 5months of age. From then it's been a constant battle to get his weight to stay at the third percentile and his paed has been happy with his consistent placement of the third percentile. I have also seen a dietitian a few times along the way.
Now that he has turned one, I am a bit concerned about his refusal to swallow textured food. He holds food in his mouth and spits it out. And it is harder to keep him on the third percentile.
His dietitian wants him to see a speech pathologist. Has anyone been to a speech pathologist for similar issues? What exactly do they do for such issues? And for how many visits do you have to see them for? I need some reassurance that speech pathologist can help. Between the dietitian, and the paed my budget is getting a big hit and I want this to be worth it when I commit to it.
Sorry it ended up a long post. Thank you to anyone reading who made it to the end.
