This week on the podcast, Hallie sits down with Tiffany Zilberman, a remarkable mom of three (including a toddler and twins) and a feeding therapist who journeyed from treating dysphagia in geriatrics to specializing in pediatrics.
Join the conversation as they explore how Feed The Peds® and Tiffany’s personal experiences as a twin mom affirmed her decision to specialize in pediatric care. Discover the unique challenges she faces, wearing both hats as a therapist and a twin mom, navigating issues like lip ties, bottle feeding, and more.
Starting her private practice called Little Eaters, Tiffany prioritizes home visits, creating a comfortable environment for children’s natural feeding development. In a community lacking feeding therapists, she becomes a valuable resource for moms navigating uncertainties.
The episode unfolds with insights into Tiffany’s most recent case, where she shares her approach to guiding a 4-year-old boy. Hear about the significance of making food exploration a delightful experience for both parents and kids.
