OP here. I'm really appreciating all the stories and support. I think I may work on my resignation letter over the weekend. What it comes down to is my family is more important to me than pleasing my boss or worrying what she will think of me.

I would make sure there is a pediatric ENT specialist as part of the medical team. Maybe something blocking the nasal passage where babies normally can breathe while eating? I hope they can figure it out soon and help your niece/nephew!
I make peanut butter noodles that work with ingredients I almost always have in the house. Mix peanut butter with some oil, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, (sometimes honey and hot sauce too, depending on your audience) pour over noodles and add whatever leftover veggies and protein you have handy.
