Feeding Difficulties in Infancy
Understanding rare disease symptoms
Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects, can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.
What is Feeding Difficulties in Infancy?
Feeding difficulties in infancy refer to issues or problems that arise when trying to get an infant to feed or eat.
In younger infants this often means problems getting an infant to suck in order to drink milk. This suck may then, in turn, be weak or ineffective. In some infants this can include a difficulty in staying awake when feeding, or losing interest in sucking before they are properly fed.
In older infants, feeding difficulties may include difficulties with chewing, as well as a lack of interest in food and in eating in general. Sometimes this will also include a pickiness with food, or a reluctance to try new foods.
Feeding difficulties may also trigger a failure to thrive and inadequate growth.
What should I do next?
In some instances, feeding difficulties may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.
