My daughter is generally a picky eater and I have to run around and feed her. She would not sit in high chair for long.. Even though she goes to a day care where all kids do sit :(
To add to my worry she gets sick every three weeks when she will be cranky.. wont eat food well .. She has sore throat, cold and now cough , top of my worry - she is NOT DRINKING MILK AT ALL.. I tried all sources , bottle, sippy cup, tumbler , spoon ... nothing works..for past 3 days.. Has anyone of you experienced same . I am very frusratated .. as it is she is in 5 %ile in her 18th month.She gains a pound and loses that when she gets sick..
I am at loss of ideas.. what can i feed her to soothe her ... how do I encourage her to drink milk.
Everytime i take her to the doc - past 5 times , she says - she is teething ..
Mannn teething is coming for her to eat well - and is doing exactly opposite of its purpose for past 8 months when it is on its way..
I tried everything .. teething med , tylonol, oragel .. teething rings
Nothing seems to work.
Currently her food intake is half and top of my worry is - she is not drinking milk .. will she start drinking bak after her cold is over ? Pls advise me to help my kid ..

What kind of milk? Have you done your research on dairy milk? It forms mucous and congestion in the body! Talk to your pediatrician. If they don't know about goat milk, it is up to you to get answers on what to do to prevent persistent illness and increase her appetite. It takes a lot of energy to digest food so when we are sick we lose appetite because it is a natural instinct to preserve strength for energy to battle germs AND heal.Learn about CPTG essential oils (NOT synthetic ones!) -they can be taken internally, rubbed on the bottoms of her feet, chest or on tummy, AND I'd diffuse them in the air. Private message me if you want to have a conversation about this.
