My son has a feeding aversion from the choking and aspirating. He gets really panicky when he has to eat. We're supposed to switch to feeding him solely with the haberman feeder, but he either just mouths it or he screams when we put it near his mouth. If he is eating out of it and aspirates, he freaks out and refuses to take it. THen if you try to give him a finger to suck on, he freaks out and screams for a while. Eventually he will be distracted but won't eat. He's started to eat mainly when he's asleep or drowsing. He's fussy cause he's hungry, but won't eat and just gets more upset when he tries. So how can we reverse the feeding aversion? Is it still pretty mild? What do you wish you'd known about it in the begining? I know very little about it, so please fill me in... I'm doing searches about it on here too, but most of it is about solids.
