Well he had his Swallow Evaluation this morning and he was not in the mood to be messed with. He had not drank anything since 9:00 last night but he would not drink anything for them. I told them that he does not let me know when he wants a drink, I just constantly offer it to him and try to get him to drink as much as I can. He did take 2 bites of food for them, held it in his mouth for awhile and then swallowed. The doctor and the Speech Pathologist said that he has Neurologic Dysphagia and possible reflux. They also said that he was no where near ready for solid foods and they discussed with me the tube feeding and said he may need this until he is around 3 or 4 until he is ready to eat. Said I really needed to start looking at this as a route they are recommending. I am scared to death! I don't think that tube feeding him is the answer right now, not with his sensory issues. Right now he 15 1/2 months, weighs 19 pounds and is 30 inches. I am just confused right now, not knowing which way to go. I can envision him constantly picking at the button site where I will have to worry about infection. ..or omg what if he pulled it out..Help! I don't know what to do
