No she's a good girl but this last week or so major tantrums when nappy changing, if I dont let her have something (thats usually to dangerous for her to play with), refusing food - chewing and then spitting it all out or throwing it on the floor even stuff that was her favourite last week!
She's extremely clingy too I cant leave a room without her screaming even just to wash up, try to sit her in the highchair so she can chat to me and see what I'm doing etc.
I'm at work today and getting rest lol!
Anyone have any tips on how I can encourage her eating properly again etc? She still has 3 6-7oz bottles of toddler formula a day which I'm reluctant to drop as she wont really drink water/juice etc and of course its whats giving her nutrition at the moment
Paige also does the whole chew the food then spit it out as if its horrible thing! She eats a few mouthfuls okay then spits the rest out! She has only started this the last week or so, and sometimes she eats alot, other times not so much. I think when I fuss and try to forceher to eat, it makes it worse because she thinks its a game, whereas if I leave her to it, she will eat a bit more before acting up
The spitting food is a phase. They realise they can do it, so they do! Tobes did it when he started getting full and bored!! I just cleaned it up, took it away and finished the meal. No pudding. I also said something along the lines of 'no, nasty' keeping the reprimand simple, but no rel reaction
I would offer something more a little later, if I thought he was still hungry, but it was not associated with the bad behaviour. It lasted a few weeks, but it passes. It still happens sometimes, I follow the same pattern.
As for nappies.... I resort to pull ups when we ave a bad day! I also have leant o change him with his shoe's and trousers are still n so less fuss, and also stood up!
Seriously though. I found 15 and 16 months REALLY hard with Fin love. I cried a LOT because he challenged me so much and I would get so wound up I felt ashamed. It has REALLY gotten better lately though so I think it was a phase and he's come out of it so I hope she does too. He's still a fussy bugger with food though xxx
Our LO is 14 months and she is starting to push the boundaries a bit, after being such an angel. Sometimes with nappy tantrums I leave her to it. Sometimes I risk pee pee accidents and put her in her cot with no nappy to calm down and she usually stops right away. Like someone else said if it becomes a real issue then you could try pull ups?
With food, she has starting just throwing it on the floor. Not sure if it's because she knows it gets attention or because the cat comes over and has a picnic. At the moment she still eats well at least 80% of the time, so we don't make a big deal about it. I don't want to encourage her perception that she has power at dinner time and start a negative association with food. Obviously if it gets worse or carries on for a long time, we might need to do something else!!
Your LO is still having formula which is giving her lots of goodness so maybe try not making a big deal about the food and hopefully she'll give up as I bet it's because she knows it gets her attention!!
same here DS is really pushing me at the moment, I think it is cutting teeth related. He was the same just before Christmas and it has now started again. Cannot take him anywhere at the moment and it really gets me down, just want to take him out to enjoy himself and he just screams and whines all the time! Aghhh when does it get better he is 20 months, not even at the terrible 2's
My LO is also being a little terror at the moment lol. She's been teething for about a month now with her first molar (looks huge and is only half way out.) She's still eating well but her sleep is awful and i think she's acting out and having tantrums because she's tired. I'm really hoping her sleep improves when this tooth pops through completely. x
