The purpose is to begin to address the lack of consistent guidelines for when and how families should begin to introduce complementary foods for children with Down syndrome. Semistructured interviews with 22 parents and 8 primary-care physicians were conducted and analyzed. Results indicated no formal guidelines exist for this realm, and yet, 17 of 22 children with Down syndrome have experienced some level of feeding difficulty. Guidelines for feeding progression for this population are needed to improve feeding outcomes.
