FFS I'm a horrible mother?? UPDATE: after 8am drs appt
I heard this from my mom this morning. My 2 yr old is refusing to eat no matter what I put in front of him (aside from the list I will give) he shakes his head no. He is drinking 72 ozs in a 24 hour period (keeps chugging the sippies) he is sleeping from 7:50pm/8:00pm to 9:40am when I have to go wake him up. He is a very active 2 year old. I am not sure what is wrong he doesnt have a fever, he has 10 pee diapers and 1 blow out each day. So anyway he has been going on this strike for about 4 days now (I see the dr tomorrow), he only eats the homemade chicken noodle soup, cheese, and maybe some angel hair pasta and a chewy bar for breakfast. He is drinking pedialyte (18oz) and water all day from the time he wakes up to the time he goes to bed. He seems to be okay. Aside from the runny nose that he has there is nothing that different about him, aside from the eating of course. He did this before when he was going through a horrible growth spurt so I figured this is what is going on.
she tells me that I am a horrible mother because I am not forcing him to eat. HE IS 2. What am I suppose to do? put him in time out?? I mean wtf. so he eats the same things every day. HE IS EATING.
update after drs:
Well everyone guess what? He has grown another 2 inches, doctor said there was nothing wrong with him drinking that much given how much he is active and how hot it has been outside. For those that asked about the pedialyte vs pediasure.. yep I screwed that one up and I will own it. This morning he has a plate full of scrambled eggs and toast. It looks like he will be back to normal about eating.
since this is a common statement I give him liquids to keep him hydrated on this binge. I have done it before and there was no issues with it. He is only eating what I wrote. I see the dr tomorrow for his 2 yr old check up.
