    Preemie having difficult taking solid

    Hi,
    we just moved to Hong Kong from Singapore. Our twin babies (a boy and a girl) were born prematurely and had an OG tube for a couple of months. They are now 8 months old (corrected age) but our little girl is not taking any solid. She has pretty bad gag reflex and vomit quite easily.

    Does anyone know any good occupational therapist or speech therapist in Hong Kong that helps preemie with feeding problem?

    Meanwhile, I am not familiar with the hospital system here. In Singapore, I take them to Children Hospital which has pediatrician, cardiologist, eye specialist, physical therapist and occupational therapist all at one venue. Where should I take them in Hong Kong?

    Many thanks.

    William

    The Department of Health in Hong Kong has Maternal and Child Health Centres. If you have an ID card I would suggest that you start there.

    The website of the centres is http://www.fhs.gov.hk/english/centre.../maternal.html

    At these centres they do developmental screening tests and can refer your babies to specialists when necessary.

    Best wishes,
