Some craniofacial conditions change how the jaws and mouth work. Children and teens with these conditions sometimes have challenges with eating and growing at a healthy rate.
The Craniofacial Feeding Management team helps solve these problems. We help your child meet their nutritional needs so they gain weight and thrive.
Our services include teaching parents new ways to feed their baby and using video X-rays to understand what happens when a baby is eating. We help children with cleft lip and palate, small jaws, airway problems and other conditions that affect feeding.
Our team includes craniofacial pediatricians, nurses, infant feeding specialists, dietitians and speech language pathologists. An infant feeding specialist may be an occupational therapist or physical therapist.
