Definition of Oral aversion

Oral aversion: Reluctance, avoidance, or fear of eating, drinking, or accepting sensation in or around the mouth. A familiar example of oral aversion is a baby's refusal to breastfeed. Types of medical trauma such as prolonged intravenous or nasogastric feeding, gastrointestinal and respiratory disorders that may be associated with discomfort with eating may also contribute to the development of oral aversion.
