I am hoping I can get some good advice on this.
We moved house 3 weeks ago on a Monday into my parents old house, then on the Tuesday (next day) our son started daycare only Tuesday each week. As you can imagine he gets very upset when left at daycare and is sad for most of the day, although we are persisting as this week was only his 3rd time there.
He does not eat a thing at daycare, he refuses the food and even his bottle. That is understandable I guess until he gets used to daycare.
But ever since the first day of day care his eating habits at home are poor too. He refuses most foods from a spoon, and will only eat certain things like clix biscuits and yoghurt. Even tonight he refused to eat his favourite, shepherds pie.
We are getting very frustrated as he is a naturally thin boy as it is so we want him to eat. Plus he acts interested in food until u offer it too him then its like he doesn't want it because its not what he thought it was. And he actually cries if you keep the food near his mouth.
We also find he gets upset if we don't pick him up a lot or if we move around the house doing things like chores.
We have now taken the stance that if he refuses his food he misses out (no clix or yoghurt etc) then offer him a bottle before bed.
We are wondering if daycare is causing this or if he is just going through a stage. If it goes on for much longer we might try taking him out of daycare and see what happens.
