It’s ok to cry

Published by Feeding Matters on Mar 24, 2023

We recently held a contest asking for designs for our PFD Awareness Month merchandise store. We are excited to share our contest winner! This design was created by Madison O’Brien, an Oregon based Speech Pathologist who also has a sibling with a history of a pediatric feeding disorder.

Madison shared her inspiration for the design:

“Parents of children with a Pediatric Feeding Disorder experience high levels of stress and are more likely to develop anxiety and depression than parents of children without feeding difficulties (Rodriguez 2022). So many parents of kids with PFD have expressed to me that they’re barely holding on. I just want them to know they’re not alone and that it’s valid to feel that way.”

Thank you for your design Madison! You can purchase this design, and others, at our merchandise store here.
