Feeding Therapy

Is your child having difficulty with bottle feeds or transitioning to solids, struggling with trying new foods, or is only accepting a very limited amount of foods or liquids? From bottle feeding to picky eating, and everything in between. We can help!

 

Feeding therapy is truly the heart of Bloom Pediatric Therapy. Some children have particular challenges when it comes to eating. Sometimes, these struggles are related to an underlying health issue or a feeding disorder. We will work collaboratively to find the root cause. We strive to support families so that mealtimes can be enjoyable. We know that parenting is hard work, let us take this one off your plate. 

 

We have expertise in a variety of disorders and diagnoses, including but not limited to:

Tongue and lip ties, oral motor delays, dysphagia, tube feeding, cerebral palsy, autism, avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (AFRID)

Testimonials

"I highly recommend Kelcy for your lactation needs; she made me feel comfortable and I loved that her knowledge base included lactation, speech-language pathology, and mother who breastfed. She saw me and my daughter a couple of days after we got home from the hospital and really took time to educate me on positioning and watching for baby’s cues. After implementing her suggestions we were able to alleviate the discomfort I felt on one side."
