Hi ladies, I haven't been on the site in months because I've been too busy being stressed out with a multitude of things, not the least of which is my 14-month old simply refusing solids for most meals. Its been for months, first it was screaming at dinner as if someone were trying to kill him. Now its lunch too. I'm lucky to get him to eat applesauce or yogurt for an entire meal. My ped said it's toddler's independence, as he's fighting baths most nights too. But he goes days without tasting a vegetable, I am lost and don't know what to do. Any advice would be extremely appreciated, this is very stressful. I try not putting him in the high chair sometimes, but most of the times we put him in there and he screams already. I've tried waiting out the crying (more like screaming), but after 1/2 hour I give up and we are done. I've tried force feeding him the first bite and sometimes that'll peak his interest enough to take a couple more. He also doesn't feed himself most of the time, my ped said he might be fighting for the independence to do that but I try plopping the food down and he only picks up watermelon, cheerios & crackers. Ugh, any advice? Thanks and sorry I haven't been around, I've missed you!
