    Default Who do I see?

    Hi all, my 17 month old girl is not eating anything except milk and yogurt.
    She is bubbly but not gaining weight or growing, I am waiting on results in 2 weeks.
    She needs food to grow right?

    what sort of milk and yoghurt is she eating?

    Other than seeing a dietician/paed to help you, the best you can do it make sure she's getting everything she needs. Keep offering things even if she turns them down, but if all she's having is milk and yoghurt make sure it has what she needs in it. add vitamins and protein to her milk, probiotics to her yoghurt etc.

    Who have you seen already in regards to your daughters eating habits? I know from your previous posts this has been going on for a while.

    Thank you for responding, I've seen a dr and a paed.

    When you say vitamins and protein she mean powder form?

    I tried the sustagen for kids but she didn't like it.

    She is having A2 milk or Pura full cream and farmers union greek style yogurt.

    would she drink formula? Personally at 17 months old if my baby was still not eating properly I would continue to give formula rather than cows milk.

    I would see an OT or a speech therapist to assess whether she has difficulties swallowing solid food.

    Other specialists to see would be a paediatric Gastroenterologist to rule out digestive issues or a paediatric allergist.

    We went through this with DS and that was the path we took in conjunction with his regular paediatrician.

    And we had him on a prescription formula to ensure he had adequate nutrients still.

    Good luck, its hard knowing what to do when things don't progress as they should.

    She ate all textures while we were over seas recently, it's at home where she doesn't eat.

    It's got me confused. Her blood results shown normal. Just waiting on another one that takes a while.

    There is a program at memorial called lively eaters. Google it. You stay for a week.

    I would cut her milk out at that age and just offer water. And see how you go she might be too full from the milk but your her mum you know best good luck

    Is there anyone in your area that specialises in SOS feeding? Will be mostly speechies and OTs running the program and would be extremely beneficial if you can access it.
