Feeding Successes

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.
