Charlie’s OT came today and we had a bang-up session. We worked on feeding, which we haven’t done in a while. She saw lots of improvement. He’s sitting in his high chair more easily, he’s doing just fine with baby food, and he did well eating pudding and a cheeto with her. She said she’s seeing real improvement in his chewing strategies and likes that he’s trying to self feed. I asked her about the fact that he gets food stuck up on the roof of his mouth. She put her finger up there and said that he has a high, narrow palate–some of that is probably the result of being intubated. As his tongue gets stronger, that should improve and she told me to just give it a little sweep when he’s eating. Ahhhh, the joys of motherhood.
