I have a picky eater and I dont know what to do ! PLEASE HELP - ANXIOUS MOM
My daughter just turned 1 year old on October 5th but I would say when she was about 10 months that when this problem started. She barely wants to eat anything. She loves grahman crackers, cottage cheese, yogurt and ravoili with meat balls and cooked chicken but half the time I dont know if she is eating enough. Breakfast is sometimes a struggle. I give her baby cereal and strawberry yogurt. She will eat most of it than ill give her a 6 ounce bottle and she doesnt want to drink all of it . Lunch is a power struggle . When I noticed she was becoming picky with baby food I figured maybe she wants to self feed so I prepared some meals and she ate "some" of it . Im just nervous she isnt get enough nutrients. I dont want feeding time to be a fight. Please any advice will help!!! She likes sweet potatos , and carrots but even that can be a fight. I dont know whats going on! and I know if I have anxiety during feeding she will feel that too. So Ive been trying to make it fun but its not working and I really worried. I know if I talk to my dr she is going to tell me to try new approaches and Im going to but I just need a direction or examples and how do I know if she is eating enough ?
