I just served dinner, something ds does eat and he has refused it. Im so angry i told him he gets nothing else. He said "do you want me to die?" I said "if thats what happens so be it, but your not getting anything else"
He's crying. I feel bad and ive broken every feeding therapy rule but im fed up. Absolutely fed up.

I love you all!!!
Ds is a terrible eater. I cried a lot over him (3.5 years old). I thought nothing could get worse!
But dd is worse!! Waaaay worse!
18 months - 8kg
Not walking.. Very small
Off to a specialist paed for weight and a different one for developmental.
She barely eats a thing! I am lucky if she eats a spoonful or a bite at breakfast.
Snacks she'll eat a arrowroot or a squeezy of fruit
Lunch barely a thing. Maybe a quarter of a sandwich.
Arvo snack - slice of ham or rice cake
Dinner - I've made everything!
She'll have a tiny sausage roll and maybe some chicken nugget.
I'm lucky to get yoghurt into her ATM.
So thankful I'm not alone!
I just got a nanny (who is a nutritionist!!!) and she is guiding us (I used to be a chef.. I'm not bad in this area!!) but she has never seen anything like my little girl!
Praying we get some answers soon. From birth she was hard to get food into and she gagged a lot when starting solids.
Ds is slowly getting better. He eats at school with the other kids.. So that's good. And now he LOVES fruit!
Not so good with veggies, but small steps!
Wish us luck! Over dr's, but looking forward to getting her looked at!

I break feeding therapy rules all the time. You can only go so far before it breaks you. Tomorrow is a new day. That's what I tell myself.
DD decided not to eat any breakfast today. She's looked at the plate and grabbed it and ended up on the floor. I was so mad.

Well it took 25 mins but i spoon fed him and he ate half of his dinner. He took so long to chew each bite. But its done.
Sitting in the bedroom having a cry. Our therapists say he may never get better with this. It breaks my heart.

26MO DD with genetic condition & low jaw tone & sensory issues here too and me wanting to tear my hair out most days. Most mornings are spent with me making her about 4 or 5 different breakfasts till we find one that she might have a mouthful or two of. Today French toast was the winner but only if I tore it up into teeny tiny pieces and fed it to her.
Then repeat that at lunch!!!! I managed to get some chicken schnitzel into her at lunch and a frozen yoghurt with fruit. She also licked the peanut butter out of a sandwich. For dinner managed to get a bit of mash and half a dozen mouthfuls of corn and some chicken into her. Really woeful actually!
Anyway other than that she has totally boycotted vegetables of any kind, so absolutely no joy there and tends to have 2 or 3 favourite fruits on rotation - to the exclusion of ALL others (one week she's watermelon or nectarine obsessed the next it's something else).
