My child spends an average of 45 minutes or more to finish a single meal

My child coughs or seems to be choking while eating or drinking

My child holds food in their mouth for a long time before swallowing

My child is struggling to gain weight

My child is refusing to take their bottle or breast feed

My child will put food in their mouth and begins to chew it, but then takes or spits it out
