As the title says, feed time has all of a sudden started to become a struggle and a fight!
My 8mth old used to eat really well and over the last 2 weeks its been getting harder and more stressfull with each feed.
He's becoming fussy, he won't pick up food and feed himself, i have to cut each thing up into bite sized pieces and put each piece into his mouth, he bats my hand out of the way when i have a spoon full of food ready to go in his mouth. He whinges, he cries, he screems, he blows raspberries with his mouth, he won't open his mouth, and he's not eating as much as he was.
To get him to eat anything is a real hasssel and i dread every meal time now. The other day, he was so bad at dinner time, that I gave up and didn't try to give him anymore, and he went to bed after a bottle and then was awake for hours and hours during the night and I gave him a bottle at 1am and he then slept for a few hours... he has not had a bottle during the night since he was about 10 weeks old because he always sleeps through!!
hints and tips anyone??
