My 16 month old daughter won’t ask for water; even if I leave a cup of water around. She’s not a big milk drinker either. Now that it’s getting 🥵; how do I help her to keep hydrated? How do you keep your kiddos hydrated?
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
What does the PAMF pediatrician handout say about whole milk transition? My baby is still 10 months but I’m curious what they say about milk transition.. any moms been told they don’t need to give whole milk and alternatives were okay (incl yogurt or cheese)?
Over the last 6 months my son has stubbornly refused anything new. He used to be a great eater and now he cries and screams if I even offer him something he doesn’t recognize. At breakfast and lunch i make things I known he likes but at dinner he gets what the rest of us are eating. At least 6 nights a week he doesn’t eat dinner at all and he’s under weight. The doctor said he needs a multi vit... More
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
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
Our daughter is underweight and our doctors are hoping we can find ways to add calories to her diet. She is 16 months and has been on the bottle via breast pumped milk from day 3 on. We are trying to transition to a soy free version of pediasure. The problem is she doesn’t like the formula. We were also told we could do carnation instant breakfast. A cup of this a day with whole milk would add... More

Help!!! My 16 month old won’t drink milk unless it is from a bottle. I’ve tried everything! Different types of sippy cups, cups with straws, the 360 cups, plain cups, her bottle but with a sippy cup nipple. NOTHING works. I’m getting concerned because she isn’t getting her milk. I give her yogurt and cheese to help with the lack of calcium. I also have tried almond milk. She just won’t take any... More
My ten month old has lost interest in eating. I open a four ounce container and he doesn’t finish it. I’ve tried feeding him different types of food; purées, Puffs, fruit, etc. No interest in eating. Then around dinner time he’ll eat about eight ounces of food. His molars are coming in and I think another tooth is breaking through. Is this due to teething?
