    So, DS (17mo) has had an ear infection and off his food for over a week, we have been giving him as much milk as he wants in that time (strike 1), then yesterday he had wanted cruskits, so he had them and
    Milk til his hearts content (strike 2) but then today (the biggest of my failures) I was eating KFC, and he was eating my popcorn chicken, which I thought was a major score since he hasn't eaten anything all week, so I bought him his own for dinner (strike 3) which he has happily eaten an entire large box, and is now eating another cruskit. Now ALL week including today he has been offered all different types of foods, fruit, veg, yoghurt, EVERYTHING and not even touched it, I was hoping by giving him what he wanted I would pique his appetite (which I'm hoping I have)!
    Am I a terrible mother for letting my 17mo old eat KFC! Please dont dob me into DOCS if I am, just educate me
    Of course you aren't! Ok, if that's all he ever ate in his entire life (I'm talking breakfast, lunch, dinner EVERY SINGLE DAY) then it wouldn't get you mother of the year lol. BUT there is nothing wrong with him snacking on it occasionally and if it were me on your position I would do the same! You did the right thing by offering other food first. But yeah, wouldn't recommend letting KFC be his main food source all the time. Every now and then is fine

    DD will always without fail eat tinned spaghetti. While it's not the most nutritious, it's one thing she will eat no matter how sick/ tired/ cranky she is.

    I don't think you did anything wrong at all. If my DS hadn't eaten for a week, he could eat whatever he wanted and I would just be happy that he had some food in his belly!!

    As for mango sorbet - YUM!!

    Aw Hun, you're not a bad mother. You did what you had to do. Personally, I don't give my son KFC, but if it's not everyday then you really shouldn't beat yourself up. As for the milk and cruskits, that just seems normal to me. I can't understand why someone would tell you off. Relax, you are doing fine.
