I have been formula feeding ds for 5yrs!!!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Yup! Ds just turned 5 and is still on formula! Oh he eats regular food too, but I can't take him off formula. It has too many good nutrients in it for him that his body needs!










This is true. But my ds is fed formula via a feeding tube. He has a lot of food allergies requiring he be on a special hypoallergenic formula. He eats some regular food but not enough to sustain himself. He gets 100% of his needed nutrition from formula and any foods he eats is just bonus calories/nutrients for him. He's on his feeding tube 24hrs a day. I'm a mom grateful for formula. It's what keeps my son alive.

He has epilepsy, a bunch more GI issues (his gi tract doesn't push food and waste through like it should), speech delay, heart murmur, asthma, floppy airways, dysphagia which for him his muscles in his throat fatigue causing him to aspirate, autonomic dysfunction which for him is causing issues sweating excessively and overheating and in 100+ degree weather he shivers and says he's cold and gets under tons of blankets, acid reflux. He was just bumped from a development delay to just speech delay in school though :)

Quoting ROBIN-C:

In reply to the bitch above you said he could be on formula at age 18.... If he makes it that long. Wow that's so hard to hear, I can't imagine what it's like to be in your shoes.

does he have other problems in addition to the allergies? Is he mentally or physically challenged?

You're right, the post was not interesting enough to keep my attention. Therefore, I only read the title and like 2 sentences. Post needs a better title or opening sentence that grasps the audience's attention.

Quoting Anonymous:

Lol, its apparent you didn't read the post. And due to the disease they believe he has, he could very well be on a formula at 18 if he lives that long



Quoting Anonymous:

sigh, he gets nutrition from other foods he doesn't need the formula... What he going to be 18 and you still giving him formula?! You are crazy.
