I should mention. ..I wasn't sure if you'd seen any posts from me before. .. That she does have a syndrome that causes poor eating or often complete food refusal (amongst other things).
It's always been touch and go with eating and DD. Every single meal time is a struggle. For the first 12 months I struggled to get her to drink her EBM and then struggled with solids.
We had lots of medical intervention plus therapy stuff. I honestly do not know how she has energy and survives. Her liquid and food intake is so poor. After 12 months I started her on pediasure which she mostly drinks and I believe has made her thrive.
She's still not great with water.
I used to just leave sippy cups everywhere so she could have access to as much water as she wanted. I also let her play with trays and buckets of water.
That really helped too.
Oh... plus I just eventually surrendered to it you know? She kept growing... wasn't dehydrated and the Dr's were happy so I just learned to accept that some days she'd drink hardly anything and that it was okay. I was doing my best.
