Our initial 60-minute consultation will explore yours and baby’s medical history, baby’s growth, behaviour and development and detailed understanding of what/why/how feeds and solids are provided, whether breast, bottle (expressed milk, formula) or both. I will ask you about what you have tried so far, how you are feeding your baby and your baby’s responses. I may ask you to take a video of solids feeds. Once the assessment is complete, I will explain the likely reasons related to your baby’s reduced interest in solids and highlight any nutrients that may be of concern.
I will provide you with practical and easy to implement strategies to meet your family’s unique needs, to help your baby progress with their solid food intake and strike a balance between breast, bottle and food. Sometimes, a baby may have developed an aversion to solids or there may be medical or developmental reasons why a baby is not interested in solids. I will refer you to other medical professionals or liaise with your current team as required. Follow-up appointment(s) are generally required and this will be discussed during our initial consultation. Depending on your baby’s progress and growth, a plan will be made to suit you.
Some babies take a little longer to get going with solids. If you are worried, the proper support can give you the tools and confidence to feed your baby. To make a booking, please click the button below.
