I always have bout with my 2 year-old daughter during meal time. She's not motivated to eat solid food, however her body weight is normal according to her pedia. I cook porridge for her in various flavors yet she's uninterested at the sight of it. She only takes the food whenever I threat her for a some sort of punishment. I feel guilty then. Any tips for my picky eater? Thanks!View Thread

I read almost all of Dr. B. Nazario's articles and one item I see missing is what is known as "Pulldown Burns" among the medical and nursing profession. PLEASE TURN ALL POT HANDLES AWAY FROM THE FRONT OF THE STOVE, PLACE ALL POTS IN THE REAR WHEN POSSIBLE, AND DO NOT PLACE CUPS,BOWLS ETC. WITH HOT FOOD NEAR THE EDGE WHERE TODDLERS IN PARTICULAR CAN REACH THEM PLEASE !!!!!!!!View Thread

resetting should help. i do the same thing with potty training. i would get my little girl up abpout every 3-4 hrs and make her go and she became potty trained at night very quickly. im thinking taking this approach could possibly do the same for your little man. if it is regular timing when it happens. try waking him up, have a small drink maybe, or simply read a book he may like. and after a week or two of this start moving back the time by a half hour, until your pass his "episode time" and keep going til its monring. and see what happens. the best of luck to you mom.View Thread
stayed at home with my boy for the first full year, so ofcourse he was closly bonded with me. he had no need for daddy. but when i went back to work, that had to change. i took maybe 2 weeks of just my husband strictly giving our son his "needs". dad took him out for "special father/son trips". and our boy has turned around. and still he and daddy take thier special outtings to keep that going. and yet mine and my sons relationship has never changed.View Thread

Has your little one decided to boycott milk? If so, dont "sugar coat" it with strawberry or chocolate. Try adding a small amount of vanilla extract (or some vanilla beans) and/or a dash of cinnamon (sp). My son downs it now View Thread
My 2 1/2 yr old grandson will not eat regular food for lunch or diner. He only wants baby food. We have tried puree the food, putting it in a baby food jar, cutting into small pieces, putting on a plate, tray and others but with no luck. When you put the food into his mouth he spits it out or gags. He doesnt even chew the food. It is like he knows the texture immediatley and does not want it. He will eat junk food like chips, french fries, crackers and even chocolate bars but wants nothing to do with food. He does not even like ice cream, whipping cream, cake, mashed potatoes, fruit or veggies. We even tried veggies cut up with ranch dressing but he wont touch it. He will eat pancakes, waffles and cereal. He was once diagnosed with austism, but then was taken to Cleveland Clinic Austism Center and they stated he was not austistic. His pediatrition seems to believe there is some type of behavior disorder or specturm disorder and we are waiting to get into a doctor to have this checked. Any suggestions from anyone. We know he has a texture problem but no on can seem to tell us when this stops. Any help is greatly appreciated.Thanks!!View Thread
For those of you potty training, when you send your kids to school/daycare/or even in the car where you keep your change of clothes, make sure you put in extra socks and shoes too.
Alot of times people just bring tops and bottoms, but when they have accidents, their shoes and socks get wet too, so even though they have clean clothes, their socks and shoes still have pee. I just had to empty DDs basket because they are going on break, and someone had to borrow her shoes I put in there, and thought I'd pass on that info not many parents think about.View Thread
