Pediatric Feeding Success Story
Our daughter was born with Down’s syndrome and had difficulty with feeding. The first OT we saw said that she wouldn’t be able to breastfeed. Our pediatrician referred us to Kids in Motion for a second opinion. The occupational therapist at Kids in Motion assured us that she would indeed be able to breastfeed. With therapy, she made great improvements, but then had a major setback. She was hospitalized for three weeks and required a ventilator. Once again we were told that she probably wouldn’t be able to breastfeed. Upon discharge, we resumed our therapy sessions at Kids in Motion and she made fast progress. She is now four months old and IS breastfeeding full time without any supplementation. Thanks to Kids in Motion, she is thriving and well on her way to reaching her developmental milestones.
