Hi, I have an almost 11 month olds baby who doesn’t drink a lot of water and I’m trying to get him to drink more water to prevent dehydration. I tried apple juice mixed with water but he wouldn’t take it unless there’s a lot of apple juice in it. Any suggestions?
My 3yr old daughter is SUCH a picky eater. She basically lives off of chicken nuggets and peanut butter. Anybody have any grand ideas on getting a picky kid to try a fruit or veggie. I’ve tried smoothies, I’ve tried hiding them in things ... I am at a loss.
My son will be turning 1 soon and I have been trying to give him cows milk. I tried bottle/sippy cup, hot/cold, added a little bit of sugar or home made date paste to make it sweeter. Nothing works. He will spit it back out. He is exclusively breastfed and never took a bottle. I am so ready to wean him off. Desperate for suggestions... thanks.
Oh please tell me they grow out of it. My son will not eat what I eat.... so his diet is pbj, Mac and cheese in the box, some times grill cheese, pancakes ( I buy the big bag of the minis), otmeal, yogurt, he wants to eat all types of chips.... um I think that’s it. there might be more to the list but I can’t think of it at this time... He has at least 3 cups a milk a day water through o... More
My LO just turned 1 a week and a half ago, so we switched her to cow's milk from formula. Aside from the fact that she won't drink milk from anything but a bottle (I have 10 different sippy cups, but any suggestions are appreciated!), I can't figure out when to give her the milk. If I just gave it to her during meals, she would never have anywhere close to 16oz. TIA!!!
I’ve tried giving him milk in every single type of cup but unless it’s in a bottle he refuses. I’ve even tried watering it down and decreasing how many and the amount. He only wants water and milk throughout the day. He also won’t go down for the night without at least 2 oz of watered down milk. He won’t eat cheese or any other dairy as a substitute. 😩 Help!
So i am in the process of weaning my 2 yr old off of her bottle, and now she refuses to drink milk of its in anything other than her bottle. She'll drink water in sippy cups but if i put milk in a sippy, any sippy cup, even her favorite sippy cup, she refuses to drink it. Is this a big nutrition problem? How much milk does a 2 yr old need?
My daughter recently turned 1 and we began the switch from formula to whole milk. She still gets a formula bottle in the morning and before bed. Initially we began giving the milk straight (not mixed with anything else) but she became SEVERELY constipated. We watered it down a bit which helped...but since this milk switch she has been spitting up :( She hasn’t shown any signs of a dairy or ... More
Does anyone have suggestions on how to get 2 year olds to eat? He won’t eat Mac and cheese, chicken, bbq, hamburgers, meatloaf, and he also won’t eat stuff from like McDonald’s, chick fla a, and Burger King. When he does eat it’s just scraps of food. He weighs 35 pounds and the doctor says he’s healthy but he won’t eat!
I know this sounds lazy but my baby is a morning girl and I’m still not quite there yet as I still have that internal alarm that makes me instinctively wake up every couple of hours to check on her. Ive been trying to make breakfast every morning for her, but I find myself just repeating the same recipes over and over again. Scrambled egg with a veggie mixed in, some fruit, and toast with some ... More
My son is 9 months (going on 10 months in a few days). The pediatrician is concerned with his weight (18 lbs). I try to feed him baby food, he turns his head. And doesn’t really want it. He also will only have a few bites of table food then turn head. I refuse to force feed him. He will breast feed and drink formula from the bottle no problem. Has any one else dealt with this? Have you gone to ... More
So about 10 days ago my 20 month old got a stomach bug. Every time she drank milk she’d throw up. But cheese and butter and even meals with milk in them was ok. So the pediatrician told me to hold off on milk for about a week because that’s usually enough time for the bug to pass. So I waited till Saturday (gave her oat or rice milk all week) and gave her whole milk again and she was ok. Then l... 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
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
