Hi, my son was born with TEF also. He's 3 and has 3 dilations. Our GI doc said that some kids need more dilations than others. But your daughter's symptoms are exactly the same as my son's when his esophagus has narrowed too much. I recommend getting another dilation procedure. Sometimes it takes a few before they work. Good luck to you! Christine www.sugarplumswank.blogspot.com
