My 19 month old daughter has dysphagia and her doctor said she is now old enough to switch from simplythick and oatmeal thickeners to ThickenUp as it's much cheaper and easier to find. Well the one store in my town that carries it (Walgreens) has to special order it for me but they have a store brand called thick now. I've been having trouble getting ahold of her pathologist to ask if this is okay .since she made sure I understood that my daughter is too young for thickenup clear in worried about trying something without asking first.
