    Default Help us mums with feeding issues

    So there's a few of us on the hub I know are going through feeding issues - solids, bottles you name it, it's a struggle. Daily!

    Please help us out and share your story about how your baby / toddler / child outgrew these issues. Anecdotes or tips welcome. Did your kids just outgrow them or did they need some kind of intervention or training of some sort?

    Default Help us mums with feeding issues

    It's so hard - I know I posted a few threads when my DS started solids. We did BLW - mostly because he wouldn't let me feed him with a spoon. He was just not interested in foods and many days (even after he was one) all he would eat is a handful of blueberries. All his little friends would eat so much and I would be in awe.

    I was lucky in that he maintained his weight etc...I can only imagine the stress of he didn't eat well and was losing weight.

    Fast forward to 3.5yrs and he now eats heaps and a wide variety of foods - he often asks for a tuna and salad wrap for breakfast! I didn't do anything special, just kept offering a variety of foods and one day it clicked for him (just well after everyone else).

    Best wishes with it all!

    This. 5yo DD with ASD. We are currently using 'maskers' as the speechy calls them (ie sauces) with most meals.

    Cheese sauce, bbq sauce, Gravy, any type of sauce. In a seperated little bowl so she can dip foods in the sauce if she wants to.

    So far so good she's eatting things she never used to touch like meat & veg. I'm not a sauce person so I always forget until she starts chewing & spitting at the table :-/
