Feeding Problems: G6pd deficiency should not effect your baby's feeding. Feeding problems are common at this age and should be evaluated by a pediatrician. Solids are being introduced and breast feeding/bottle feeding decreasing. Feeding problems may indicate issues with development or actual physical or neurologic issues. Please see a pediatrician for evaluation.
