Setting Up for Feeding Success After the NICU


Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

The Feeding Matters Workshop, “Setting Up for Success After the NICU” presented by Dr. Kay Toomey will help parents, caretakers and professionals living and working with children being discharged from the NICU to be as successful of eaters as possible. Dr. Toomey will discuss how very complicated feeding babies is, as well as when and why children may begin to struggle with their feedings/eating across the first 2-3 years of their lives. At each developmental time point, Dr. Toomey will give strategies for Setting Up Your Child For Success in order to begin them on the path of developing a healthy, lifelong relationship with food.
