& Rapid Tube Weaning Program
Feeding Aversion Consultation
Having a baby refuse to feed (breast or bottle or eating solids) can be incredibly stressful. I can help you get back on track to make feeding and eating an enjoyable experience for your family again in as little as a week.
You can read more about feeding aversions on this helpful blog post I wrote here
You'll need to complete my feeding questionnaire which will give me a comprehensive history of your feeding journey up until this point. I will assess the questionnaire, work out the cause of the aversion and make recommendations how we can resolve it. Contact me here to book
Phone or Video consultation 45 - 60 minutes plus a 15 minute follow up call. $200
Deb put a plan together for our daughter who was suffering from a feeding aversion. There is no doubt that if Deb did not help us, our daughter would be looking at being tube feed. The plan was easy to follow and having Deb just a phone call away was very reassuring for us. Our little family is so much happier now that we have a daughter that is feeding well, sleeping well and not spending hours crying. That is all down Deb. I would highly recommend Deb as she completely understands your needs and your baby's needs. ~ Sheree Borcovsky
Rapid Tube Weaning Program
I provide an online service to families who have a child under 12 months old with a tube feeding dependency. Provided your child is fit and well, they've been cleared medically / the medical need for the tube has passed, that they’ve been cleared by a SLT as having a safe swallow and are able demonstrate they can currently / recently accept oral liquids or puree’s / solids (even small amounts) they may be suitable for a home based tube wean.
You will need to complete a comprehensive feeding questionnaire and email Deb your most recent letter / correspondence from your child's healthcare team – Deb will assess these and decide if your child is suitable for the tube weaning program.
This is an intensive 2 - 3 week program where we work very closely together. By the end of our time together, your child will have learnt how to happily accept fluids and solids (if age appropriate) and be tube free! $650
"My 4 month old had a feeding tube for 8 weeks after developing an aversion. It was a very difficult stage for us. My daughter was seen by different specialists and all they could think of was reflux as the main cause of her aversion. She was getting worse. My LO was always upset, vomiting, not sleeping well. My anxiety levels were high. I wanted the tube out! I was desperate to find answers. Then I found Deb. In less than two weeks the feeding tube was able to be removed. My daughter is now feeding a lot better & sleeping better. We got our lives back. Deb is amazing.
She is professional, thorough and well organized. She went through every single step safely. I am so glad we reached this stage. We are now enjoying our precious one and that is how it should be. To all the parents out there who are going through the same stage, you don't have to suffer in silence. Have faith and contact Deb ;) " ~ Lem Haigh
