Feeding problems are very common in the newborn and infant stages, whether you are breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, or both. They can occur for a number of reasons and can cause a lot of stress and frustration for parents. Sometimes the infant has a hard time with sucking or swallowing the milk. Other times they can have trouble with frequent spit ups and vomiting which can be uncomfortable for them. Most of the time feeding problems are not too serious, especially if the child continues to gain weight and develop as expected. However, sometimes there can be causes of poor feeding that are not improving and run the risk of harming your child’s growth and development. The reasons for more serious feeding issues include anatomic, functional (like reflux), milk intolerance, genetic causes.
