Feeding Difficulties

Eating is culturally defined as a social activity and under ideal circumstances, an activity that is to be both enjoyed and nutritionally balanced for optimal growth.

 Foundational feeding skills emerge before the first breath of life.

Craniofacial structure (form) and sucking and swallowing (function) is practiced and developed in utero, beginning with inhalation of the amniotic fluid. It should not be assumed that an infant's sucking is functional at birth. All infants should be provided with a baseline feeding assessment to ensure proper oral motor patterns are present for a strong foundation for future feeding success and oral and airway health.

BalancedBaby Feeding Bootcamp

The team at Balanced Baby gave me the confidence to feed my baby food that wasn’t blended or puréed.

She was picking up pieces of salmon last week and enjoying it fully. They taught me how to give her the most amount of nutrients in the appropriate sized portions. I feel like we have a head start in developing a healthy eating routine, even though she didn’t start eating until feeding bootcamp at 9 months old. The classes were both entertaining and enlightening. The size of the class was perfect and it was nice watching the other babies in the class go from crying the first half of day one to shoving everything on their trays in their mouths on week five. I fully recommend balanced baby for any of your baby care, feeding, or developmental needs.

Client Testimonials

Words truly can’t describe how amazing feeding bootcamp was to me, my baby, and my entire family.

Holly and Jen are the most patient, informative, and fun teachers. Going through feeding bootcamp empowered me to try foods I would have never given my 6 month old. I was able to learn the difference between when I needed to intervene versus when to let my baby figure it out. Going through it with Holly and Jen plus other families created a community I didn’t know I needed. I highly recommend Feeding Bootcamp to anyone ready to start solids. Two months later and my baby is eating like a champ anywhere we go!
