Neale noticed yesterday that Charlie had started sucking a little so we tried a binky again. He sucked on it a little but not as much as when nothing was in his mouth.Trying to get him used to different positions. He hates transitioning from one position to another.Neale found that patting his mouth has the same effect as patting his bum. When agitated he just melts and relaxes. I guess there are a lot of nerve endings around the mouth as well.Due to the increased sucking yesterday, Courtney, a speech therapist, said that may be a sign that he is interested if food. So today was pudding day for Coop.She put pudding on her finger and then pushed against his gums. He liked the gum pressure and did swallow some. The swallows were delayed and intermittent but it is a good sign that he didn't hate a flavor in his mouth after all of this time.
