    I'm sorry to say that only now, my DD has finally left the fussy phase...she 7 years old.
    I always had a 'heres dinner, eat it or don't eat it. I never offered alternatives. Some days it was harder than others but we got through it.

    remember, a child will ONLY eat then they are hungry. Kids eat for the week...think about what they eat during the day and over a week rather than everyday.

    Does your DD have formular still? If so, maybe cut that out. She will be getting everything she needs from the formular so will not be hungry for food.

    Good luck. Its sucks and its hard but stick to your guns.

    She does still have formula. About 100mls when she gets up and 100mls when she goes to bed.

    I would stop the formula and see if it helps. Theres a lot of nutrients in formula and if her body doesn't NEED the nutrients she wont be hungry for them...I hope that makes sense, it does I'm my head hehehe.

    My 21,yr old 48 kg son is still super fussy and I'm yet to see him clear his plate.

    He was a shocking eater as a child

    Everyone is different.

    Can you swap bfast and formula around? Food first then milk afn hour after?

    My ds just turned 2 and I've dropped his milk right down so that he's hungry. Including bed time milk as well, he just wasn't waking up hungry enough.

    Hugs. I have 2 crappy eaters, it's hard not to worry.

    I have tried that but she refuses the food and screams for the bottle.

    She actually ate some breaky this morning. Weetbix.

    She has her needles today so we will see how her percentiles are going.

    Default Help! I'm at my wits end!

    Don't stress about percentiles. I know it's hard. My kid was 3rd% for weight until he turned 4. But he was happy and healthy and was just eating for his body type.

    Good luck.


    Ps re screaming for milk... Don't give her as much. Give only 60ml, if you think that would be an option. She'll learn, and she'll be fine, no matter what happens 😊

    Cut the milk right out. Yep they scream but DS was having way too much milk and wasn't eating enough.

    Unless a paed recommends intake of bottles I wouldn't even give them anymore

    The dietician said to keep the formula so she has enough dairy.

    100 mls twice a day is not much. I think that's fine to keep OP.

    Yay for Weetbix this morning.

    We had some banana bread, yoghurt and grapes for morning tea/lunch. That is a good day today. Yay.
