Hi mums out there
I'm hoping to hear from any other mums that are experiencing extreme difficulty in getting their little ones to eat solids?!
I started my daughter on solids at 6 months of age (she is now 8.5months), and still refuses to eat. I have tried all sorts of food, different textures, commercially bought food, home cooked, distraction methods, eating with her, finger food eg Baby-led weaning, food before breastfeeding, different times of day and STILL refuses!!
I should mention she was born at 36 weeks and tube fed for first 4 days of life.
Her weight is trending downwards, and she is already as low as the 5th percentile. She is fully breastfed, and will not take a bottle. I would love it if I could move her onto formula so as I could fatten her up and ensure she's getting some iron.
She has had blood tests, and urine test, which has ruled out infection. I've been taking her to a speech pathologist that specialises in feeding difficulties...but nothing is really working, and I'm worried!
Would love to hear other peoples similar frustrations or advice....it's really wearing me down
