    There could be something else going on. I spent 5 years thinking that my DS1 was a fussy child, it drove me insane, meal times were always a nightmare, I'd send him to bed without dinner if he didn't eat it. Until I realised that it just didn't work so I gave in and just let him get away with it. Recently it has come to light that he may have sensory processing disorder. Sigh.

    DS is 20 months also. He has not eaten well since 12 months and then got worse at about 16 months when he got 6 teeth at once. Now he is teething with 2 yr old molars. He is only about 11kg so I worry because he is so skinny. I have asked DOCS to get him a referral to a pead but the say it's not warranted so I'm going to get one from his GP. I'd like him to see a pead dietitian in case he needs a supplement of some kind.

    That sounds like a huge challenge for you. I hadn't heard of that before. We don't know as yet what might be ahead with DS as he was a drug affected baby. His birth mother was on a lot of different drugs right up til giving birth so there could be problems that come up in the future. So far he is going pretty well with milestones accept for talking but we are working on that.
