Problems and symptoms

We have the expertise and knowledge to treat a wide range of problems and symptoms associated with poor nutritional intake or feeding difficulties. The different problems and symptoms we can help with include:

Fussy eating

We can help by advising on where your child’s diet is lacking in nutrients and on behavioural management strategies to help in achieving the most varied balanced diet possible. We can ensure you will see results and improvements in your child’s intake if you follow our recommendations and advice.

Difficulty weaning

Weaning occurs when the baby is ready for extra calories and nutrients that can’t be provided through milk or infant formula. Some babies may experience difficulty during this process as they show aversive behaviour towards solid foods. We can help your baby through this process whilst decreasing parental anxiety.

Food aversions

A feeding aversion refers to a situation where a baby or child who is perfectly capable of feeding or eating exhibits full or partial refusal. Food aversion can develop at any stage of a baby or child’s development including breast feeding, bottle feeding and weaning onto solid foods. We can help ensure your child is having a nutritionally adequate diet.

Drooling

Drooling occurs when there is excess saliva flowing from your child’s mouth. Drooling is often a normal occurrence but sometimes children may drool more than the expected amount which may cause other difficulties for your child, including affecting their feeding habits.

Stress around meal times

Sometimes a baby or child repeatedly refuses feed despite being hungry, this can make meal times and feeding a frustrating and stressful experience for all involved, resulting in parental anxiety and stressful mealtimes. We can help provide tips and support to help minimise stress around mealtimes.

Poor weight gain / failure to thrive

Children grow and gain weight more rapidly than at any other time in their lives. Some children do not gain weight at the expected rates. Poor weight gain is also referred to as failure to thrive as children do not tend to meet their expected growth potential.

Gastroesophageal reflux

GORD is a common condition where acid from the stomach leaks into the oesophagus. It usually occurs when the ring of muscle at the bottom of the stomach is weak. We can help by advising on feeding timings, appropriate feeds and early weaning where indicated.

Sleeping problems

Children’s sleeping patterns may become affected by their diet, particularly if they are experiencing discomfort after their night feed or they are waking up through the night for another feed despite having had their night feed. The Kids Feeding Team can help reduce a child's sleeping problems by managing their feeding.

Vomiting

Sometimes vomiting persists longer than expected, this can become a problem when vomiting is associated with feeding and can result in your child becoming malnourished. Our dietitian and speech and language therapist can help advise on how to minimise and overcome vomiting.

Discomfort with feeding

Babies may show discomfort whilst feeding for a wide range of reasons. We will be able to identify the main reason why feeding is causing your baby discomfort and we will be able to minimise the discomfort.

Constipation

Constipation is a common condition that affects people of all ages. It means that you are not opening your bowels regularly and that you are unable to empty your bowel fully.

Toddler diarrhoea is the most common cause of persistent diarrhoea in young children. It predominantly occurs in children between 1-4 years. Children with toddler diarrhoea tend to have 2 or more watery stool motions per day.

Sensory based feeding difficulties

Children may experience aversions to food due to their senses. Children may be sensitive to taste, smell and the touch of food for a number of reasons. We will be able to identify the main cause of the sensory based feeding difficulty and implement coping strategies to ensure your child is still receiving a nutritious diet.

Underweight

Children are rapidly growing and developing which means they have high energy demands. If these are not being met the baby or child can become underweight. Low weight can occur for a number of reasons; these include inadequate nutritional intake, a period of rapid growth, delayed weaning, poor oral intake or being a fussy eater.
