Second opinion

I appreciate the responses to my "Milk" post.I'm not going to put thickener in Ruby's milk.I just don't think there is a need for it.She doesn't have trouble swallowing,she has never aspirated,and she doesn't have reflux problems.Ruby's pediatrician hasn't said anything about Ruby needing milk thickener.I'm supposed to go back to the therapist on Monday.I'm just going to let her know I'm not going to put that in my baby's milk and see how it goes.There are other ST's at the place I take Ruby.I think I may ask to speak to another therapist.It's hard because I think the ST genuinely likes Ruby and she has given me some great exercises for Ruby's mouth.I may feel more comfortable with a more experienced ST though.

I hope everyone's New Year has started out great!

At the end of the day, you need to be comfortable with what is going on.

You know what is right for Ruby so you are doing the right thing. It is always uncomfortable to not agree with the therapist but I am sure they are used to it. Happy New Year!

Well I hope she responds to your decision in a positive way. It is really nice when your team is on the same page as you. I have had a few battles over the years and wish I didn't have to fight and argue so much but in the end these are our children and our choices to make Good Luck!!! :)
