I used to give her pouches and they would feed her that, but have stopped it about a month ago to encourage her to eat regular food. She would only eat bread (toasted or regular), raisin bread and some cakes or at least try to eat it. She does seam to eat more of it there than at home, I guess because she's hungry and knows there won't be anything else. She's also learning to take small pieces of fruit and has deli meats or crackers. So she is eating something there, but not enough to grow and develop on that food. That is why I pick her up around 1pm to feed at home. She tends to eat well after childcare as she's hungry... In the long run, I think this is the way to go. It encourages her to eat regular food, she self feeds and eats as much as she wants/can. They also offer her lunch food and sometimes she tries it and other times won't touch it...

She sounds like she's doing pretty well overall. Maybe you could see a paediatric dietician to go over what she is eating and how you can 'fill the gaps' so to speak. You might be surprised. Most of the time we actually think a little one should be eating more when in fact they are eating enough.

Can you tell me more about the surgery and the recovery? Also how soon you saw improvements with feeding?
My DD had bronchillitis and tonsillitis at around 1 year corrected, then numerous viral infections for about 5 months since starting childcare. Both kids have been good now since June (fingers crossed).
WE got an appointment to do a barium meal swallow test in children's hospital within a week from my paediatrician sending a referral in. They couldn't see anything obvious being wrong, but the official assessment letter hasn't been provided yet.

She does have a dietitian. Her diet is ok and the quantities good, it's the tfact that most of her foods still need to be pureed that is the problem . She is a very active girl, but tracks on 3 percentile...
WE've tried pediasure and polyjoule to boost her calories and free me from worrying about her food, but both didn't agree with her. She went back to vomiting, gagging and fussying.... I boost her calories by adding oil and egg yolk to her savoury dishes...

Her eating took a little bit so my paed said give her whatever mc Donald's anything. Her fav to this day is snack box from KFC 😏 she's still a milk addict she's almost three and I've only just taken her bottle away!
Recovery differs for each person ours wasn't very nice but the Chinese boy next to us he slept the whole time!! I swear they bought there own medicine haha. We got script liquid end one (very dangerous if not careful)! But she was fine after about day 5 we had to fly interstate to have it done as we moved to Queensland and I booked the surgeon and I didn't want to change so had to wait two weeks due to peak bleed period. Best decision ever
