He Won T Eat For ANYONE But ME

AmandaManns - May 6

My son is 4 1/2 months old and I have been lucky enough to have a job where I can take him with me most days but sometimes I do have to have his grandmothers watch him. Well we started him on solid baby food about 3-4 weeks ago (doctors orders) and I am usually the one who feeds him his baby food so now he will not take it from anyone else. He throws a big fit if anyone else tries to feed him, but if I sit down and do it he will eat and eat and eat. I have tried leaving the room when he eats and tried sitting right there when someone else feeds him and nothing works. Sometimes I am at work and he will not even open his mouth for his grandma and if she does manage to get food in his mouth he spits it out at her. He won't eat for his dad either. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get him to eat for other people. Thankfully he will take a bottle from anyone but only will eat off a spoon for me! I cannot have this continue because he has to get his nutrition. I mean right now I am not worried about it because he can eat when I get home but as he gets older he will need to eat more solids and if I do not break this now he will never eat for anyone else.

My daughter did the same thing... Noone was allowed to give her milk but me at around 6 mths of age... Then she did it with meals for a while... She doesnt do it with milk anymore but sometimes she wont eat for certain people, mainly people that arent around her much... Its just a little comfort phase and should soon stop. Just get grandma to feed your son as much as u can so he gets used to it.... I would find being in the same room though wasnt helping my daughter when it came to milk, its not forever and i wish u well..........
