Today she mugged a baby twice her size for his malted milk biscuit then sat and ate it triumphantly!
Oh wow! Clearly your little girl is doing so well!!

I'll offer some breadsticks and cheese then x

Could be teething related citrusfruit, my friend's baby would be fussy when teething. I would just dish up as normal then offer yoghurt and fruit after.

It did make me laugh when she stole the biscuit. She's going to be a little terror. I thought she was following him round to try and play with him.

Urgh it's driving me wild!! He is only eating what he knows, which is a reasonable variety but nowhere near enough. Probably about 3 different dinners and 2/3 different things to put on toast/in a sandwich. He will also eat most fruit well and some veg too, but less enthusiastically.

Just really don't know what to do, feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. Don't want to give in, but it's driving me mad trying to think up and prepare all these weird and wonderful things that he then won't eat.

Don't think it's teething or any other problem like that because he eats fine when it's what he wants, and he will happily eat a mixture of spoon and finger foods.

Should I just keep persevering with new things?? Or stick with what he knows for a bit? If I do keep trying new things, what do I do when he doesn't eat them (every day!!!)

It's so tough isn't it?! I would just try and stay calm and carry on doing what you are doing to the best of your ability. That's what I say to myself when things get a bit crazy!

My LO is suffering with a nasty cold at the moment - he's not being himself and actually rather miserable. Our routine is just all over the place at the moment which drives me a little bit mad but I try to stay calm and carry on as normal - offering milk and food.

xx

Sorry citrusfruit I forgot to reply the other day, got distracted by DD trying to eat something she shouldn't. I would keep trying. It's annoying but it's really good to keep exposing them to new foods. Just don't make a big deal or try to cajole, pop it on the tray and leave them to explore.

Hello ladies!! I'm driving myself mad a bit and LO has entered a really picky phase! He's only eating fruit and veg that he knows. He's gone off toast and weetabix....just throws it on the floor and even pancakes today were rejected!! I feel so deflated!

On top of that I'm struggling to establish a routine with him because he's been ill and his sleep is all over the place. And also because of his older sister who is at school who I have to look after as well and I do the school run!! Basically I feel like a crap mum and like I'm letting my baby down

I struggle to give him his bedtime breastfeed - he just won't take it I do a breastfeed about an hour before dinner (around 4:30) and then it's bath and bed (7:30). But I don't think he is hungry enough for a milk feed then. So shall I replace that feed with a snack with the hope that he will take his bedtime milk feed? But I'm worried about cutting out too many milk feeds as they are still important to him. Or maybe I can offer yoghurt after dinner to replace bedtime feed? We get both children ready and fed at the same time as that's easier for. I can't possibly cater for everyone individually. That would drive me mad!!

Sorry to be going on and on about this - I just feel so frustrated! Having two kids is just so much harder than I ever imagined!! I'm trying to make the baby fit in with our daily routine but it doesn't seem to fit with his needs and I just feel so guilty!

You're not a crap mum! Babies routines go to pot when they're ill. Mine's the same at the moment. She's cut her morning feed and the other day she went from 4.30am until 10.30am without a feed. I would stick in a yoghurt after dinner just to ease your mind and feed on demand as you are.

You're right about it being tough with two and the school run interfering with feeding routines, roll on half term!

Thanks Button# for your kind words. it's nice to have some support!

I'm offering boob 4 times a day but it's only the early morning one that he really seems interested in. The mid morning and mid afternoon he doesn't seems to be bothered at all and the bedtime feed is a battle....I try to force it but he takes very little. He's a great eater and doesn't seem very interested in milk.

I'm thinking of maybe just cutting down to one breastfeed a day and offering milk in a cup at snack time instead but will my supply be ok. I worry my milk will dry up on one feed a day. I don't plan to breastfeed after he turns 1. I'm going to switch to cows milk. Maybe keep the morning feed if he really wants to.

But he doesn't drink very well from a cup yet. So that's a problem.

On another note. What do you do regarding sauces that contain milk? Like if I make my own macaroni cheese I tend to use semi skimmed milk. But I know that's no good for baby? I don't intend to use whole milk for food which the rest of the family eats. Too fatty.
