hi to all. My 12 m.o. granson can not swallow food yet. Any advice?

He eats Gerber #2 with no problem, just slides on down. #3 or other soft foods he keeps in his mouth forever. 15 minutes or more. Even watermelon is in there for a long time

  • What does the doctor say. What does he do when you give him the food? Does he cry when he eats? Go to carepages.com and go to the care page feedingwithfaith (all one word) - you will find a page of parents who have kids with feeding issues.

  • have you talked to the dr about a swallow test?
    Is he teething
    does he have teeth yet
    throat hurt (issues with small airway passage, or enlarged tonsils etc... can effect)

    Good luck
