Feeding difficulty/refusal

Definition

Feeding difficulty or refusal typically expresses itself in gagging, vomiting, and slow or difficult advancement of feeding volume

Although infants seem to be interested in the nipple at first, they may stop drinking, regurgitate or become irritable after several sucks. Many possible causes exist for a decreased appetite, some of which may be harmless, while others indicate a serious clinical condition, or pose a significant risk.

See your child’s doctor if you observe feeding difficulty or refusal in your baby.
