The Infant Growth and Feeding Clinic is a multi-disciplinary clinic for infants and children under two years with any growth or feeding concerns. The team available consists of a neonatologist, paediatric dietitian, speech and language therapist  and child psychotherapist (*).

  • assessment regarding infant's growth
  • psychotherapy support for concerned and anxious parents of children with feeding or eating issues
  • addressing and resolving behavioural eating difficulties
  • assessing gastro-oesophageal reflux and vomiting
  • support with feeding difficulties, following gastro-oesophageal reflux problems and vomiting

We work closely with the feeding teams in both Camden and Islington and will be able to refer into these local services for ongoing follow up as appropriate.
