Does anyone have as big of a feeding issue as I do?? This is Madie today..thumb locked in mouth and well...I put the spoon in her hand for cuteness but she is far from eating with it by herself..let alone eating solid foods avidly... She holds her shirt like its her blankee and just refuses to eat.
When she was...oh...5-6 mo the Pediatrician told me to go ahead and try some rice cereal and begin to intro more as I go..I was excited to say bye to formula! I had been going back and forth from Enfamil to Target brand dependig on if I had a good coupon that week...
I have been trying foods on and off for awhile and sadly its become more of a waste of expensive baby foods than anything.. I credit two weeks durring her ACTH that she was literally wolfing anything I would feed her!
Since beginning her B6 a few days ago its been recomended that she take the vitamin with something solid so it gives me a good excuse to try food once a day...Alot of people tell me to just let her be hungry and that eventually she will realize that food is her only choice..me being the hardass I am have been unsucessfull with that one.."we are the poster family for next step formula" Its sad...
What am I supposed to do when she is 2 next month? cut her compleatly to Milk and food?? She is a horrible eater...
My husband and I call her bottles "potion" cause we have been mixing bottles for sooo long and the stuff is really like potion...lol.
I of course blame her seizures for her lack of eating..I know she can suck and I know she had the ability to swallow her food..now the chewing I dont think she knows what to do with chunks of food..she gags horribly..
I duuno folks...gah!!
Today Madie had ONE seizure!! juuust one! now that I have said that of course Ill see another right? I feel as if we are sooooo close!! Will she outgrow this?? Will we have to try "another drug coctail"?? Does it have an end? Well her Neuro says it does but then most kids develop a NEW type of seizure...There are many types unbeknown to me but a seizure is a seizure buddy!
I guess that is all from me..just wanted to post those pics...lil one is upset for her "potion"
