When babies refuse to eat

Feeding a baby may seem like one of the most natural things possible. But many infants end up on feeding tubes because of various medical conditions. Then once the illness is resolved, the baby refuses to eat. That's what happened to Virginia Sole-Smith and her one-month old baby Violet. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Sole-Smith, a journalist who has written about her daughter's experience with the condition of oral aversion.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 a.m.  Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
