My name is Rebecca, and I have just begun my journey with Makers Making Change as a volunteer. I have just read your request and you have so beautifully described what is needed as well as your personal experience. I have been a long-time volunteer in a child development organization and previously worked as a pediatric occupational therapist for over a decade. I am familiar with particularly the Dr. Brown’s bottles and did work closely with SLPs in feeding treatment programs. If you are still seeking assistance, I would be happy to continue brainstorming with you and I would also like to defer to my local chapter leader @anapbba for her biomedical and engineering expertise.
