    The author said to avoid sippies after 10 months ... I defer to her because I know very little about pediatric feeding. That's not my area at all. She says it's okay before that, but at 5 months I...

    Yes, straw cups are fine. I consider that an alternative to a sippy but I can see that would need clarification. I actually don't think they help with oral motor development but they don't hurt,...

    It probably would have been difficult to place her for EI, so don't beat yourself up about waiting. Between three and four is when a lot of this often begins to show up as a problem.

    That would depend on what services your district offers and how much intervention they feel she needs. In my district, if a kid only needs speech and nothing else we often just have them come to the...

    That sounds awful. I'm so sorry.

    I do have very definite texture preferences, so I'm sure my picky eating was a sensory thing as mentioned in the article. I have been known to gag from certain...
