Parenting after a Loss

A phase?

DS has semi- lost interest in eating solids.  He'll eat well for the first few minutes, and then he just starts pitching a fit.  It's been going on for over a month now.  At first, I thought teething.. but, it seemed odd that he still acted like this at least once a day even when at no other point did he shows signs of teething discomfort.. then I thought reflux, because we had lowered his dosage.. I've modified it back to where it was.. and though I see some improvement in other places, the eating is still hit or miss.  My sister said she thinks it's a phase?  Anyone else notice this type of phase?

  • At 10 months, food is just for practice anyway - most nutrition should be from formula or breastmilk for at least the first year. So I would just follow his cues, keep offering food, and not worry about it too much.

  • Under a year it's more of an activity than it is a meal, so I wouldn't stress about it.  If he eats a little and is done, then I wouldn't force it...  But check with your dr. if you do feel like it's more than that, like reflux or something.

  • I've heard of babies going through phases like this.  Just an idea, but have you had him weighed and his reflux meds adjusted recently?  DD used to get mad when eating (though it was also when she BF) and we upped her dose and she was good again.

    i need to talk to the ped... He was doing so well and we hadn't upped his dose since 6mos.. So ped said he was already weaning... But then crap hit the fan outta nowhere.. I will have to call them and see if maybe he does need it increased.. I just hate giving him more if that's not the problem, ya know.. Was really hoping he'd be off the reflux by now...

  • The most important rule I respect when feeding my baby is: first breastmilk and then solids. I first breastfeed and after one hour or so I offer solids, she's not taking a lot but still, breastmilk is the primary source when it comes for feeding. You should just make sure she gets enough breastmilk and find the right solids to offer. I use very different fruits and vegetables which I get from here: http://goodmomming.com/   . I think it's a great resource for weaning. 

    You should also try some different veggies and fruits and see what your baby likes.
