Sorry if this isn't in the right spot but there didn't seem to be another spot for this.
So I have a 17 month old son who refuses to eat, and I’m at my wits end with it, and would like some advice about what I should do/try next.
When it comes to food and my son it's a constant battle. I started trying him on solids since he was 5 months with rice cereal which he hated, I then tried pureed fruits and veggies, which he also hated.
I have tried pureed fruits, veggies, slightly-very lumpy/mashed fruits and veggies, softened but whole fruits and veggies, raw fruits and veg in batons and cubes, sultanas, crackers, eggs, weetbix, chicken you name it, I’ve tried it. It's only been the past couple of months that he will eat yoghurt and sometimes he will eat pureed apple, but the apple is still a struggle. Quite often he gags and coughs and stick his fingers down his throat and makes himself throw up.
I have been to see the child health nurse at my gp clinic a few times and she suggested the baby led weaning which I have tried, and have not been successful. She doesn't seem too concerned either as he is growing and putting on weight and reaching milestones etc. But it's really starting to stress and worry me. He can't live off formula forever?!?!
Any advice would be soooooooo grateful.
