Sorry ladies, but I need to rant to someone who understands.
DD is 13 months and we are struggling with feedings. She has a dairy allergy and I am finding it frustrating to find things she can eat herself. DD also has DS and is struggling with the strength of her jaws. I can give her things like shreds of chicken or bread but she chews the rest of the night on that little shred until it eventually works its way out of her mouth but she's not swallowing much. Little items like Cheerios or star puffs don't make it to her mouth and the longer puffs don't stay in because she doesn't let go of what's in her palm. She also refuses to touch anything that will get her hands dirty like bananas or melons. Aaaaarrrggggg!!!, Girl! You have got to eat! Momma wants to lose this pump!
