FTM here to a 1 yr old active toddler boy who likes to play & run around most of the time. He started walking at 11 mos old & just into moving & exploring more, all the time. He has a good appetite, as well as his height & weight are on track in his growth charts. It’s just getting more challenging to feed him at times & keep him in his high chair for awhile during meals unl... More
How can I get my son to pick up his food and actually put it into his mouth??? He’ll do it with a spoon, and I know he’s capable of eating things that can be grasped (I’ve given him hard boiled egg, small pieces of pasta, banana, boiled veggies, typical BLW things) but they only make it to his mouth because I eventually feed them to him. Should I get the baby puffs since they’re accommodating t... More
My 19 month old refuses most foods I give her, which I know is normal, but she refuses before she’s even tasted the food! What do I do? She’ll just grab whatever is on her plate and shred it and throw it on the floor, will not bring up to her lips at all. 😩
My little one has been interested in getting into the trash ever since he could walk. I'm hoping someone has found a trash can that is secure against a toddler's prying hands. I'd prefer this to a lock, since I don't have good luck with those in general.
My 1 year old son will not eat anything homemade. He eats multigrain cereal and 2 fruit and veggie pouches( store bought) everyday and eats it all. In fact he asks for more. I have tried and tried different fruit and veggies combos at home but he knows! He spits it right out. What do I do? Please help.
I'm a stay-at-home mom of a 19 month old ACTIVE little one and am also beginning to address my generalized anxiety disorder, and one thing that seems to derail my efforts to be a fun mom and keep him away from the TV (which I don't mind using but just not ALL the time like my son would like) is the prospect of too much mess. I never ever pictured myself as the mommy who would choose not... More
I have a 1 year old boy who’s just started to snack more besides meals & as much as I want to prepare most of his food at home & from scratch, it’s not always the case. So far, he have only tried puffs (store bought), he didn’t like the arrowroot biscuits as much. I’m wondering what other store bought snacks that other toddlers likes around 1 year old & up? I do give him sandwiches,... More
My son is so pickey. Like he got salmonella like 3months ago. Maybe 4. Anyways it was puking for a whole week. Well ever since that it’s like he won’t try nothing no more. He will only eat peanut butter crackers and otmeal and like snack stuff. Breakfast is easy Bc he will eat his yogurt and toast or blueberries pancakes. But lunch and dinner is a hassle!!!! We already have to go to the doctors... More
Hi everyone! So I’m just looking for some input from other parents on toddler milk consumption. My daughter was breastmilk and formula fed her entire first year, and everything went really well. She slowly trimmed down her breastmilk and formula consumption to around 20oz as she increased her solids intake and everything seemed fine. She’s always been in ~70th percentile for weight and 80th ... More
Hi All! My 7-month little girl (4-months corrected) has been tune-fed since birth. In the past she has taken up to 50% of her feeds by bottle but after bouts of reflux and Head/chest colds she now rejects taking the bottle/boob or any flow of liquid (breastmilk/neosure formula) by mouth. For months I’ve been to doctors and therapists but none have established ongoing therapy yet. So, I’m gettin... More
My son is 12 months old will be 13 months old on the 17th of this month. I’ve been trying to get my son to eat table foods. He’s just not for it. I’ve tried mashed bananas, soft scrambled eggs, toast, mashed carrots, broccoli, rice cheese etc. and he doesn’t want anything. He eats the baby food without a problem but he just doesn’t want table food. What else can I try so he can eat food?
