I am sure that some will not like what I have to say, they seem to prefer to have problems, rather than to accept they are just another person, but in any case I feel compelled to share my experience as a father of five. We had/have a picky eater and spoke to our pediatrician at around this same age, perhaps a bit earlier. His advice was that when the ...

One thing you might consider is giving her some choice, in two ways. First, allowing her to choose 'leftovers' to the current meal. If yesterday's dinner made a few servings of leftovers, allow her to choose from the available leftovers if she doesn't like what you made, after trying the current dish. This means it's not any extra work for you (I don't ...

Could it be a sensory processing issue? You've tried every single thing I've ever heard of for picky eaters (former picky eater here and mother to one that refuses to eat anything not processed within an inch of its life) and you're not seeing any results. Maybe it's time to bring in an occupational therapist that specializes in pediatric issues; they're ...

None of my kids had reflux, but there were definitely differences in how "urpy" each one was -- since your daughter does have reflux, she will spit up more often. There are some useful suggestions in this article and from the Mayo Clinic. I'd personally suggest that upright positioning during and after feedings and less milk per nursing session may be ...

I think that to a quite high extent, food pickiness is a natural thing. I speak from my own experience, I haven't grown up from some of my food pickiness ever. Yet I'm a happy adult, healthy and stuff, and certainly I'm more unhappy of the memories of people convincing me hardly to eat non-cooked onions, than from missing such food in my childhood. ...

If your baby is too full after your breastfeeding sessions, then maybe you're just letting out too much milk (believe it or not). That can be causing reflux in the baby. You should try pumping and measuring out your feedings for a bit to see if that affects her in a positive way.

You might look into a food intolerance (inability to digest), the most common being lactose intolerance. At this age (over 2) the digestive system is usually running fairly smoothly, as the child has had enough time to build a sufficient population of healthy bacteria. They are not "allergic", since there is no histamine reaction, and so is typically not a ...

By 8 months to 1 year, we were feeding both of our children what we ate - no difference. Obviously if you haven't gone through very many foods yet (and thus have allergy concerns), limit this to what you've tried already; we started solids around 4 months so by 8 months had hit all of the high notes there. What's nutritious for you is also nutritious for ...

I used to boil a week's worth of various fruits and vegetables (no added salt), puree them individually, set a bit aside for the weekend, pour them in ice cube trays and put them in the freezer. Then we'd take them out as needed every weekday morning and add some oil, put it in a jar to defrost by lunchtime at daycare where they'd warm it up and feed it to ...

It's important to distinguish lactose intolerance from dairy allergy. Lactose intolerance occurs when the body loses the ability to digest lactose. Someone with lactose intolerance can consume lactose-free dairy products (including hard cheeses) without trouble; lactose-containing dairy products will cause gastrointestinal upset, but no other problems. On ...

Jealousy is natural tendency we find among infants and babies. You simply cannot help it and it goes with the time. Have you ever seen two grown up twins fighting over a morsel to eat first? Don't worry, this will go as they grow. As of now, if alternating spoon-feeding has not worked, for a period being, you can treat/feed them separately. You take one of ...
