Cookie swallow &: Sounds like your little one may have some oral delays, showing up as feeding problems and speech problems. Ask your doc about a "cookie swallow", where the radiologist actually watches your child swallowing with a special type of x-ray to see if they are having difficulty coordinating it.Also should see a speech therapist to work with oral motor skills and problems which could be limiting language.
