My 19 month old DD is driving me insane at meal times! She throws everything onto the floor, no matter what it is- at first it was slightly cute, cheeky toddler behaviour that I accepted and thought would get better after a few times of telling her 'no, we don't throw our food"...
Well now it's really getting to me. I will make her toast and within minutes she has flung it across tbe room. Vegetables are swept off her tray within seconds and even feeding her at a small toddler table with a little chair makes no difference- as soon as my head is turned, her food is gone. Actually my head doesn't even need to be turned, she does it right in front of me. Nothing I say or do makes an ounce of difference- she just smiles at me and says "oh no" and will then ask where her food is- she doesn't understand that once it's on the floor she can't have it back. This is a constant battle, with every meal, every day. We did BLW so she rarely lets me spoon feed her, occasionally cereal and milk she will allow it, but even yesterday she suddenly grabbed the bowl of cereal and milk out of my hand and threw it across the room.
Other than that, no behavioural probs whatsoever, no temper, she's a very happy baby. Even the food throwing is not done tantrum style, she just does it for fun, it seems.
Anyone else having this issue? I'm so over it.
