2 year old Premmie drinking strictly formula still??

I can’t find any info on this what so ever, but my son was born at 22 weeks and we try and try to get him to eat any kind of solids or baby food and he just won’t do it. Usually we set him in the high chair with all kinds of different baby food and also baby chettoes and while he will sometimes nibble on the cheetoes he will not eat the food, he was at first playing with the food but now he shows no interest at all, I’m at a lost and I’m so scared it’ll get to the point where eventually he will need a gtube like his brother who is also on a trach. Someone pleAse give me some advice.

Hi, I'm seeing this way after the fact.  How is your son doing now?  I would think an eating/speech therapist would be really helpful. Let me know if you have tried that.
