Our Teddy Bear's Journey

Theodore was born with renal failure. This is his story.

Feeding Successes

on July 13, 2016

Since my last post on the subject, Teddy has made serious strides in eating successes. One evening at dinner, he sat and ate a half of a chicken tender. Just like he’d always done it. Just like it was no big deal. Boom.

Then a week later, he ate a cheese and turkey sandwich – a) like a sandwich (as in, he picked it up and ate it like you or I would eat a sandwich, vs eating the bread and then maybe the ingredients)  b) all of it – the turkey included. Whoohoo.

Then a week after that, he ate an ENTIRE MEAL. It was a chicken nugget happy meal. 4 nuggets, fries, and drink. All. With his mouth. Since then, he’s eaten a lot of chicken nuggets. 🙂

AND he ate a bite from a cheeseburger.

He still balks at most new foods. He had a near panic attack at feeding therapy this week because there was pasta with sauce on his place.

So… progress.
