My 2 year old will literally eat nothing. Not a single bite. He will ask me to feed him certain things. But I had enough of that and so I’m refusing to feed him (he has a plate of his usual foods in front of him) but he will just sit there and wait for me to put the food directly in his mouth. Then eventually he will say he’s done and that’s the end of it. My husband is home by his afternoon sn... More
My almost 16 month old daughter is not eating very much...maybe like 3-4 bites on her own, and then I have to feed her and most times it's such a struggle, she is so distracted!!! on a good day it takes about atleast 30 minutes to feed her, this has been so frustrating for me but I need her to eat so I've been feeding her. I spoke to her pediatrician about it and he suggested that I jus... More
I’ve been trying for months to teach my now 15 month old how to use a spoon but he either tosses it aside and continues to use his hands or takes the spoon and chews the handle. I haven’t pushed it and just let him play with the spoon but as he’s getting older I know I really need to let him know that we use silverware and teach him how to use utensils. Any advice? What’s worked for you?
So it happened again I made my 15-month-old a nice chicken cutlet dinner with vegetables and she had one piece and considered herself full. I honestly don’t know how she makes it through the day, she lives on milk. yes I know it might be teething but I’m wondering do your one-year-old eat a healthy amount or are you too just getting by on whole milk??!! Also whenever I do cook her a nice dinn... More
I’ve been looking up sample menus and recipe ideas for feeding my now one-year-old boy but the samples I’ve come across seem to add in wayyyy too much food for such a little person. My baby eats more now than ever but it’s like a handful of berries for one meal and some milk. However, some of the samples I’ve seen out there suggest a whole grilled cheese sandwich plus 1/2 cup of veggies, etc. I... More
My son is 14 months and ever since he turned 2 months he’s become very picky if not straight out refuses any food or liquid. I don’t know what to do, I’ve tried tricking him and switching his food when he doesn’t expect it but he’s caught on, I’ve blended his food and tried giving it to him through a syringe bc he won’t take it any other way but he’s started to spit it out. I bought him multivi... More
Just curious! How young did you start your toddler on Cheerios or any other boxed cereal? I always prepared his meals from scratch but some of his snacks are store bought like puffs & they’re expensive especially if like my toddler who can easily finish them. Was considering Cheerios lately as I noticed some toddlers eat them but not sure how young they start. Plus, I love my Cheerios, haha... More
My one year old is on solids now. She’s loves the purées and infant oatmeal. Recently after I finish feeding her oatmeal and one jar she’ll cry when it’s all gone. So I open another jar and she finishes the whole thing and she’s satisfied. Then about 10 minutes later she throws up half of what I just fed her. So I’m question is should I just let her cry instead of giving her more food? I’ve tri... More
My toddler recently started daycare. Her provider texted a picture today where she was eating a dessert. I know, most people wouldn’t care. But I’m actually pretty angry because we intentionally don’t let her have sugar yet. (The book The Case Against Sugar makes convincing arguments about its addictive and epigenetic impacts, and recommends holding off until age 4 of longer if possible.) ... More
My 16 month old knows the sign for hungry. And he does this sign often, that, or he goes over to his highchair and asks to be put in it. He asks for food often, 90% of the time he’ll actually eat an entire snack and the other 10% he’ll nibble and be done. I want to keep him on a good schedule, but I don’t want to deny him food if he’s actually hungry.... I know he’s growing like a weed so I’m n... More
I’m searching for an awesome spill proof cup for my toddler to drink his daily smoothie out of. Basic sippy cups don’t usually work for the thickness of the drink and I don’t want to find leaks on my floors and splats on my walls if I let him take the cup with him to sip on while he plays. I would love some recommendations. Thanks all!
Lunch time hack: sprinkle a teaspoon of hemp seeds into the buttered bread of your LO’s grilled cheese (regular or vegan) sandwich. Also, use the end pieces for the sandwich and turn the dark side over (so it’s hidden from picky kids while covered in that melty cheese they all seem to love), now you’re not throwing two perfectly good pieces of bread into the trash!
I’ve talked about this before on here. Just looking to vent/hear from parents whose baby grew out of it. My daughter is always constipated. Not exactly true since I can fix it by being hyper vigilant and making sure she eats healthy and her daily diet includes plenty of fruits, drinks lots of water, takes her probiotic daily, blah blah blah. She has also never been so constipated that she cr... More
