  • ALRIGHTY, BREATH! HEHE, SHE'S NOT TOO YOUNG TO UNDERSTAND THEY BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND AT 6 MONTHS ACCORDING TO MY DOCTOR. IF THEY LISTEN AT THAT AGE THATS A DIFFERENT STORY! HEHE.. IF SHE THROWS A FIT IGNORE IT. SHE'LL GET OVER IT. AND ITS OKAY THAT SHE DOESNT WANT TO EAT HER VEGGIES BCUZ THEY GO THROUGH A STAGE WHERE THEY HATE CERTAIN THINGS THEN THEY LOVE THEM MY SON, DIDNT EAT ANY MEAT FOR ABOUT 2 MONTHS MY DOC SAID IT WAS FINE THAT THEY OUT GROW IT. SO YEAH AND THESE RANDOM FITS ARE TANTRUMS. HEHE HOW LOVELY YOUR BABY IS STARTING QUIET EARLY! WELL GOOD LUCK WITH EVERYTHING! :D

  • your job is to put healthy food in front of her. After that, it is her job. She will eat what she needs to. Ignore her and just let her eat. Many children have survived with little or no vegetables. If she realizes she gets a great reaction out of you for not eating her veggies this could become a great, fun game!

  • Is she eating other foods you can mix it into? Example: Last night we had Hamburgers, noodle roni and broccoli. DS will take a bite or 2 of broccoli, but that's about it. I chopped it up small and mixed it in with his pasta. He ate most of it along with his noodles.
