    Re: Toddler not eating

    We tried the feeding mommy and daddy game last night. He had great fun spooning pasta into daddy! He took about 10 spoons himself so at least he got something into him, although I think daddy got...

    Re: Work is not working!

    I guess my worry is that he never seems to give hunger cues anymore. He never seems hungry!
