Having tough time feeding my daughter. Any suggestions?
My daughter was in table food until 17 months and after she became autistic she became picky eater. So went back to gerber food. She eats only 3 food. Applesauce, mango sauce and banana with water and rice cereal. That too it has to be the same brand like gerber. I have to even blend it in a blender and make it as liquid inorder to feed her. Whenever i try new food, she touches them and throws them in the floor but never put it in her mouth. When i force her she screams and throws up. Recently i took her to a feeding therapist. Her therapist said she is a complicated case since she is already 3 now and that she also has sensory issues and it might takes years for her to even try a grape or apple. I got so frustrated and that person also started torchuring my daughter infront of my eyes like "using a rope tied her hand and forced her to eat" and she said that is the only way it will work. And instead of eating my daughter started throwing up and totally hated all food now. So I had to literally stop her therapy there itself. I don't know is that the only way.
Other than the above food she likes":
Hash browns, pizza, french fries , any crunchy snack plus pediasure and multigrain cereal.
But her current doctor told me to stop everything and make her completely gluten free. So from multigrain cereal we moved her into organic rice cereal. So from last two days she is on complete strike without eating. What can i do?
I am going crazy. I am also sick with flu that makes my life miserable.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
