Feeding, Eating, and Elimination Disorders in Childhood

Week 10: Feeding, Eating, and Elimination Disorders in Childhood

“I am so tired and frustrated. Jackson refuses to breastfeed, and bottle feeding is not much easier. He was the perfect baby when he was born, but now, 6 months later, he is only a few pounds heavier. He won’t take any more than 4 ounces of formula at a time and wakes up several times during the night. We started him on baby food early, but even then he only eats one or two bites before he starts kicking and crying. The pediatrician says there is nothing wrong physically as he is meeting all his milestones, but he just won’t eat.” Feeding, Eating, and Elimination Disorders in Childhood.

Jessica, age 32, mother of Jackson, age 6 months

Children and adolescents with feeding, eating, and elimination disorders may come to the attention of providers in a variety of settings. These disorders are disturbing to parents and may have significant morbidity for youth. It is not uncommon to hear of youth with eating disorders including anorexia and bulimia. It is less common to hear of pica and rumination disorder. Elimination disorders of enuresis and encopresis are troubling to children and parents and cause significant difficulty in daily functioning. Feeding, Eating, and Elimination Disorders in Childhood.

This week, you work with your group again to develop a Parent Guide for a feeding, eating, or elimination disorder. You also submit your cover letter, resume, and portfolio.

Feeding, eating, and elimination disorders can be difficult to detect and treat.
