its a phase the doctors always say && it is very true a child will eat when they get hungry enough...at that age they eat very little my daughter is almost 3 & i have just now got her back to eating more than a bite here or there...also a child can be intimidated by how much you put on their plate. put a spoon ful of everything but not too much. also you could use the "big girl" exercise && if she eats something praise her && tell her how much of a big girl she is..she wont starve.View Thread

weened my daughter off my giving her a sippy that was shaped like a cup with the top you can buy them at walmart....throw the bottles away tht will keep you from breaking in to give it to him. he will get used to taking the sippy. but he may be too young for the cup. when he drinks from the sippy tell him hes a big boy. praise him they look for that..with the potty training he will start when he is ready most children dont fully potty train until they are 3-4 years old. dont sweat it he will let you know when he is ready.View Thread
