We provide families with expert and effective guidance for weaning their children from feeding tubes and to joyful family mealtimes. We empower parents to trust themselves and their children around food, provide detailed plans for creating positive mealtimes and introducing appetite, and offer a team of support professionals for the journey. Our successful consultations provide an affordable, personalized, and caring path to your family table.

We start by asking you to fill out a comprehensive Intake Form that helps us to get to know you and your child better. It also helps us to identify any red flags that would indicate a possible concern with beginning a weaning program. Should that be the case, our team would be happy to work with you toward the development of a pre-weaning program/strategy.
If the information provided on the Intake From indicates readiness for a weaning program, families would move into the Pre-Program Consult stage. This pre-program consult costs $425, and allows you to get to know the key players on your Weaning Team, while providing us with all of the information we’d need to develop a personalized weaning program tailored to your child’s medical needs and feeding dynamic. The pre-program consult consists of conversations with our SLP and Parent Coach, as well as the collection and review of videos and your child’s key medical records.
Once the Pre-Program Consult is complete, caregivers will have the option to purchase the Weaning Plan of their choice. Our plans (hyperlink to services menu) offer varied levels of support – from a mostly-do-it-yourself option, all the way to a full-support program. Caregivers are encouraged to choose a program that best meets their goals and desired level of support, knowing that each plan comes with tailor-made weaning plan for their child as well as the option to add services (without buying an additional program).
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A Weaning Program
We will provide a specific tube-calorie reduction plan, suggestions on mealtime structure, foods to offer, how and where to offer food, utensils to try, how to learn your child's hunger and fullness cues, and how to think about feeding and eating in new ways. We are here to support you in the transition from medical feeding to family mealtimes with advice, empathy, and mental health support.
Once you are a client, you will be able to connect with your support team in 24 hours or less.
