Okay everyone. I have an almost 19 month old son. He is in the 17% for his weight, but the doctor says he is perfectly healthy. I am still a little worried, but I guess thats normal for a first time mom.
Here is DS's eating habits daily :
He eats about 3/4 a cup of oatmeal with mixed fruit in it every morning.
He gets a 10 oz sippy of almond milk after that.
He eats lunch ( usually 2 veggie options and a meat ) he picks at it and normally doesnt eat more than 2 baby handfuls of anything.
He gets another 10 oz sippy after that (almond milk)
then about 3hrs later he gets a 5oz sippy (almond milk or juice and water )
Then its dinner time (2 veggies and a meat )...he refuses to eat anything ! Except when I spoon feed him his yogurt. Then he is done.
He gets one last sippy 10 oz of almond milk before bed.
He rarely eats snacks in between meals...if he does its about an hour or so before dinner.
He also hates meat and has become very picky.
What can I do ? The pedi said to keep offering the food and eventually he will be hungry enough to eat it, but he is already low weight...he cant really afford to miss a meal....any advise would be helpful !
