Eating Problems:Reflux , Eating Problem , Not Chewing
2007-11-07
Name: Reflux Eating Problem Not Chewing Hi All,

I had posted many messages here regarding my son' s problem with reflux and vomitting before. Nowadays i am seeing many messages related to this and people telling same kind of problems in this board and also in eating disorders topic in parents of preschoolers board. I would like to form a group of mothers whose kids had this problem and how they overcome this problem.What ideas they tried and worked out. Which are not worked out etc.. Any therapist or doctors they saw and how long we need to give pureed food.

My son' s details are below.


My Kid is 22 months old.He was premature born 35th week and his birth weight was 2.1 kg, Current weight is 10 kg. He was gaining weight well till he was 6 month old then started vomitting from 7th month. He will have milk or cerelac and starts vomitting the whole. Everything will come out. Slowly he had lot of hiccups then vomitting continued and even increased with semi solid feedings. Each time he vomits i will feed him again and he will refuse and finally have a little. Nowadays he almost stopped vomitting on pureed food (of cerelac consistency) but he vomits if u try to give him solid food , biscuits , chips , anything not pureed in mixie. Till now i am grinding food in Mixie and giving him. I tried having solid particles in the food like mashed rice.But he is vomitting every time i try this. He want' s to have finger food like adults, but even he bites biscuit and don' t know how to swallow and vomits it out whatever he had previously also. So i am afraid to give him anything solid. He is very active otherwise and he has achieved other mile stones also in time.And he is extremely sensitive about food smell. He does not like smell of Raddish, Papaya etc.. there are many. He will eat only bland food like idly, rice etc..he can not accept new food.
I consulted nmany doctors regarding vomitting they say that pediatric GERD and he has to outgrow by himself. Regarding solid food they say keep trying and give him fatty foods like cheese. I don' t know how to give him cheese and ghee. He does not like that and vomits. Is there anything be done for his problem. Please advice ... ?

Please share your experiences and provide each and every bit of advice which will be useful for lot of other moms who suffer like this.

Thanks

Subject:  MEDICINE FOR NOT VOMITING
TOYODOM - DOMPERIDONE PAEDIATRIC SUSPENSION is the medicine recommended by a doc. I haven' t used it. But, it is proven to be effective in reducing vomiting in babies and children. Please check with your doctor before administering it.

Subject:  my son is not chewing
my son is 28 months old. he was also born premature at 27 weeks. He refuse to eat solid. I puree everything-fruits and cooked food. In the morning he eat cereal mix in milk. whenever i tried to give solid food he always throw up. He never have problem swallowing food, just chewing food. whatever I put in his mouth he wants to swallow, but if he feels any chucks or large pieces he immediately starts gagging and sometimes vomits. I tried to give him food in a little feeding toy that have holes and when he bites it small pieces of food comes out, but he still refuse to eat solids otherwise.

Please reply if you have any solution to our problem

Hi kamal

My 13 month old son has exactly the same problem. He cannot eat anything thick or that needs to be chewed. I really have to blend everything like a puree before feeding him . All he eats is blended bananas and sweet potatoes. I am really very worried about him since i live with my in-laws and they keep trying to feed him rice, roti and other stuff which he cannot chew and he throws up everything whatever i had fed him earlier. I really want to know the name of the medicine that you gave your child and she is fine now. Please let me know about the medicine asap.

Hi, My son is 26 months old. He has acheieved all the milestones in time or sometimes b4 time. The only problem he has is that he doesn´ t chew his food. i´ ve tried giving him all kinds of solid, soft food, but he seems to be scared of swallowing and then gagging. I´ m very worried about this condition of his. His pediatrician says its ok and he eventually will start chewing solid/dry food, but i´ m really concerned. i´ ll be grateful if somebody can suggest any remedy or any doctor who can help.

Subject:  try forced vomiting
try this
give him something to eat - then make him forcefully vomit the same by putting your index finger at the base of his tongue. All the while encouraging him verbally by saying - \" vomit dear vomit\" .
Many a times involuntary habit stops when we start doing it voluntarily.
Let me know if this helps.
About me: i run a child dev center in bangalore called geniekids (visit our website by putting geniekids in google.

very dangerous and unscientific method.... esp for a kid suffering from GERD. Pls understand the root problem and advise accordingly. This a a medical condition that has to be treated gently. My nephew had the same problem and till he was 3 1/2 yrs had to be fed pureed foods. By God´ s grace, they will grow out of it. Be patient and gentle with them.
