more strategies we used

14. Feb, 2016

The worst thing for us was when Melissa started to cry.  Very quickly she would start vomiting.  This we were warned by our paediatrician could put Melissa at risk of aspiration pneumonia.  Vomiting was the last thing I could cope with when feeding Melissa was always our greatest challenge. 

For some time I did not realise that the vomiting was also attributed to constipation.  In those days we did not know about or understand this. I learnt and understood more about the vomiting constipation problem when I was spending time with another mother who had a high needs child.  Constipation contributed to the vomiting.

The information I needed was not out of a textbook, but from the experiences of other mothers. 

there are further tips we learnt throughout my sharing on this website!
