This is sort of repetitive from a post I wrote yesterday, but Im in a moment of frustration. For the last week or two, my DS has impossible with eating -- won't take anything except saltines, cheerios, and puffs -- if that... Even babyfood, which he's familiar with, makes him angry. And any attempt to introduce something new that maybe he'll like, has been a complete fail: grilled cheese, regular cheese, canned peaches, pears or pineapple... god, the list goes on and on. He has tasted waffles and pancakes - but would eat a bite or two.. seem to like it fine.. but then refused it. I'll wait two hours after his bottle so he'll be hungry...an hour after his bottle thinking maybe he's TOO hungry... doesnt matter. Daycare seems to get him to have babyfood fine (they write down what he has on a sheet and Im amazed) but he pretty much has no meals whatsoever when he's home.
He's been battling ear infections for over a month now (which I wrote a separate post on yeserday) and apparently there are two bumps on teh bottom from more pushing thru)...my DH thinks it's one or the other -- but I think he's just not interested. And it inevitably results in me being frustrated and having DH take him out the high chair so I can go decompress. Actually made me cry in frustration this afternoon (Im home b/c daycare is closed).
And while much appreciated- all I've heard from people is which foods their kids love to eat... that's not the issue- he won't even try anything. Is anyone else dealing with this?
