I refuse to feed my 2 year old niece when she stays over at my house. Edit Edit again
Okay she came over this weekend and here's how it went.I bought her some gerber cheese puffs with whole grain and some dehydrated yogurt bites and fruit and vegetable bites. She ate them all!!! She was on a sippy cup with watered apple juice all day :-) 6yo dd brushed her teeth at night, she wouldn't let me do it,lol. But she went to bed at 10:30, slept all night (but she still had a milk bottle :-( All in all, I think there might be hope for her yet!
Does anybody have any food ideas for a picky 2yo? Also, she's on a bottle all day, goes to bed about 1am and won't sleep without a milk bottle and a movie. I'd like to get her on a sippy cup, any advice on what kind a bottle fed kid might like? And how can I get her to sleep a little earlier preferably without a movie? Help!!!!
It sounds terrible but it's true.
This child has the worst diet I have ever seen. She lives off of snack cakes, chips, fruit snacks, cookies, pizza and raman noodles. She is on a bottle day and night, her poor teeth are rotting and she's overweight. I feel so bad for her :-(
Lately she's been coming to my house for visits and overnights. I asked her mom what I should feed her and was given the list above. I laughed and said there's no way! Then her mom said that if you don't feed her that she won't eat anything at all She's worried about her starving herself so she feeds her whatever she'll eat.
I'm sorry, I've raised 3 2 year olds, and babysat quite a few. When they're hungry, they will eat. So now when she comes over I offer PB&J sandwiches, scrambled eggs, apple slices, bottle water and whatever we happen to be eating that night. So far she hasn't eaten yet ( babysat two different days and one overnighter) but I'm holding out hope that she'll give in one of these days,lol.
