Not sure where I should post this, but I really need some advice please, has anyone been through, going through anything like this?
My LO who is now nearly 17 months old is suddenly refusing to eat pureed foods (I thought no problem will just give him finger foods full time), but he is so picky, he won't eat any vegetables at all and will only eat bacon and burger patties and grapes, maybe a little banana and some apple. He throws his veggies on the floor and pulls a face and shakes his head. I am worried that this diet is not balanced, he is so small still he only weighs 18lbs! Will he be alright on this diet, I keep offering all sorts of veggies and fruits but he just doesn't seem interested. What should I do.
Also, he is just so clingy to me - only wants me, crying, hanging on to my legs, wanting to come up all the time. Then when he doesn't get me he throws tantrums by throwing himself on the floor and screaming - is this normal, why is he doing this? I had to physically restrain him yesterday to put him to sleep, he screamed, kicked and hit me for 10 mins until he finally gave up to go for his nap and then he had a nice 2 hour sleep.
I wondered if we haven't been spoiling him, he had some complications after birth and needed surgery, then we found out that he had food allergies to dairy and soy. Could this be true?
So confused and frustrated. Can you advise?
