Another feeding post?

That's right!
You would too, if your once NPO, then only pureed eating baby for 3 years ate a forth of his shredded chicken BBQ sand which!
With pureed bites of BBQ chicken in between bites of sand which this boy didn't gag, cough, or choke at all, nope, not even once. At our last feeding therapy visit (you remember when he walked all the way down that hall), we were instructed to start giving Alex mashed or soft food, not pureed. Or along with the pureed. It started with this sand which and since then he has had baked beans, and lasagna not pureed, and to be honest not even mashed, just nickel sized bites all regular textured food!!!!!!! YIPPEE!
Someday the food cubes willbe gone, and I will have my freezer back!

Oh, I so too would be taking pics! I watched a doc on Sunday night (somewhere round there) about tube-dependant kiddies and the battle they go through to transition from tube to actually eating food, with most of them eventually going on a "training" course for a couple of months at a clinic. So it is AMAZING that Mom and Alex are doing so incredibly brilliant....WELL DONE GUYS!

Go Alex! Food is so much fun and so good...I'm glad you're growing so much in this way. It's such an encouragement to your mom!
