Mommy report: BIG feeding news!

First, just watch.  Really. If you even know an inkling about Braska do NOT miss this.

I won’t say much, as I don’t have time to share the whole story.  But here’s the highlights.

  • Last Friday, new eyes on B for a behavioral feeding consult. New protocol given.
  • For the last 7 days, we’ve rearranged pretty much everything to abide by the new protocol (including 45 mins 3 x day for focused work).  I admit I’ve missed a couple I just couldn’t figure out how to avoid.
  • Today at lunch she did really well eating her little tiny squares of graham cracker. So I thought it wouldn’t be to far a jump to cheerios.
  • She was watching Sesame Street this evening, and I handed her a cup of milk and a little cup of cheerios and told her to practice her crunchies.
  • It took some prompting, but she took one each time, chewed it, and kept it in.

Read that one again right up there….  that is BIG in our world!  HUGE!!!!!

So I had her sit up where I could get video for her feeding team, and she cooperated pretty well.  I can’t believe it, but we’re celebrating here!

(By the way, it’s still VERY new that she just handles a straw cup like a pro.  So the combination, looking so “normal,” is just about overwhelming!  Long way to go still, but hooray!)
