Questions and answers

Below is a post written on a FB group I belong to…..this post was written following a major accomplishment by a five year old little boy….and for his mama!….and I am so happy for this mama from Pennsylvania……as she now is able to start the transition from bottle to the HONEY BEAR!…..I can not even tell you how wonderful it is for me to be helping mamas and little ones all over the world….thank you to this mama for allowing me to post her post!! I kept his name anonymous……

L just took a sip ALL BY HIMSELF from his honey bear straw cup for the first time!!! It was a tiny sip… but he actually sucked the liquid up the straw himself!! You have to understand, he’s FIVE years old and has been drinking from a modified bottle because it’s the only way we’ve ever been able to get fluids in. So, we have a ways to go before he drinks enough volume from a cup…but I’m sooo excited, this is a HUGE accomplishment for my little man! Thank you Kim Marino for your help/advice!!!

About Kim

My name is Kim Marino and I have been practicing as a licensed speech and language pathologist since 1993. I work on Long Island providing diagnostic evaluations and services to children from birth to age 21. My experience is vast and am proud to say that I work with children that may present with articulation and phonological concerns, oral motor feeding concerns, Down Syndrome feeding, cognitive rehabilitation, auditory processing delays, receptive language delays, cleft palate feeding and sound development and expressive language delays. Most importantly, I am the mother of four amazing children and am happily married to my childhood sweetheart. I feel blessed to have my four children and so lucky to share this journey in life with my husband. I always had it somewhere in my head that I wanted to develop a blog or a website of some sort so that I could provide families with an additional resource....so that parents could help their little ones become a better communicator. And as I was developing this blog....I realized that I also needed to share the stories about my life and my children....and the funny things along the way that help to keep me smiling. Whether you are a working mother or not...finding balance between home, children and life can be a challenge....I hope that my blog helps to bring a smile to your face..and also some tools to help you help your little or big one. I hope you enjoy! Kim
