    A little. We put puree on his highchair tray & gave him some finger food to dip in it. He didnt really dip it but took one mouthful off a spoon from me & played with it a lot

    Made friends with a Mum from DS1'S school and today she realised how much younger I am than her. I really hope this doesn't change anything.

    My best friend is 10 years older than me and its the best friendship ive ever had! I don't think age is a problem in friendships 😊 hopefully she doesn't either

    Nah, I am 16 years younger than the oldest mum in my mums group. We get on great. Age is only a barrier if you make it one.

    I think you'll be fine, one of my very good mum friends is only a few years younger than my parents and we're quite close.

    Thanks everyone! I think we'll be okay. She just seemed really surprised when she realised which is odd because most people think I look really young anyway. Pretty much all of my Mum friends are 5-10 years older than me.

    I think you're going to feel so much better if you drop your expectations.

    You say he sleeps through the night - that's awesome for a bub his age. Take that as a massive win. Wake up each morning after your full nights sleep (something many mums on here - even mums of toddlers aren't lucky enough to have) with the attitude of "if he sleeps, he sleeps, if he doesn't, he doesn't"

    Then if he doesn't, you've prepared for it, if he does sleep.... Bonus!

    I understand you are frustrated but your defeatist attitude here isn't going to help him sleep, take a bottle of formula or eat solids. A more relaxed attitude is far more likely to help.

    Good luck with the solids

    All 3 of my children had cows milk protein intolerance which caused reflux but only found out with my second. My first we just thought reflux was silent so no vomitting just screaming, refusal to eat, drink or sleep even on reflux meds. After had my second he used to scream 2 hours non stop every day and then one day after 6 hours of non stop screaming and throwing up milk with blood despite being on reflux meds we discovered through a pard he was cmli. He was put on hydrolysed formula and it took about a month for his gut to heal and after that he ate and slept like a champ. Wish I had of known for my poor girl but yeah well she suffered with speech issues because I guess she didn't develop the muscle in her mouth and also the fact she had other issues like slight brain damage… But at 8 she is a healthy normal functioning main ********* beautiful girl who eats everything. There were some hairy times she refused to eat still at the age of 5/6 but you know I think I just should have let it go stopped with the pressure if I could see the future. It gets better hang in there.
