We’ve been using the loaner air cushion since last Friday and we’ve definitely seen some improvement in the eating situation! He really enjoys sitting on it, which is great, and we’ve noticed that we’re having to intervene much less often.
He will still overstuff but it’s not every single bite, it’s every 2 or 3 bites. And he is much better about using the fork or spoon. Again, he’ll still grab food (and this is when he tends to overstuff, the utensils slow him down) but we don’t have to tell him to use a fork or spoon with every bite. We’re seeing enough improvements that we’re going to order him one of his very own so he doesn’t have to cart it to school and back every day.
Yay for progress!
