Cerebral Palsy Eating Bibs

Are you looking to make your child with cerebral palsy eating times easier?  Does your child experience challenges when eating or drinking?  For a child with cerebral palsy eating times may be challenging due to oral motor disorders. In addition, your child may have challenges with drinking, swallowing or eating. Alternatively, your child may have longer mealtimes. It is important to allow your child enough time to swallow all of their food. Mealtimes may get messy when your child with cerebral palsy is eating.

Having a bib that will protect your child’s clothing may help during these times. The designs of these bibs have a subtle, over-the-shoulder shape. This provides the attractive look of a tabard but with a short back. As a result, it is an easy shape to put on and take off. In addition the shape of the tabard will allow your child to have free arm movement at mealtimes. These bibs have long lasting, sprung steel, snap fasteners. Because of this, they stay firmly fixed in place. You can also adjust the wideness around the neck to suit most sizes.

Supporting Your Child During Eating Times

Introducing eating in a positive way can help your child to see mealtimes in a positive way. Allowing your child to see the plat of food clearly can help them to understand how much food they are eating. In addition, having colourful child friendly plates, cutlery, bibs and other utensils will allow your child to have a sense of ownership over their eating times.

Promoting independent eating for a child with cerebral palsy

Providing soft foods that can be swallowed easier will help to aid your child with cerebral palsy eating during the day. You may wish to gradually introduce independent eating if your child has cerebral palsy. You can do this by placing a spoon in their hand and using hand over had support to assist them with moving the spoon to their mouth. This may get messy and it is important to remember to be patient. After your child is able to understand and independently support their eating with a spoon, you may want to try foods that are easy to eat with your fingers.
