I M STILL Having Problems With Ds Eating Habits

ConnorsMommy - February 10

I posted a couple weeks ago (or so) about my ds (13mos.) NOT eating enough solids.. I THOUGHT the problem was that I was giving him too much formula (too much that it was filling him up)... BUT I've taken him completely off formula for about a week now and he just WON'T eat. I've tried every possible food you can think of... I've tried having other people try to feed him... I've tried letting him feed himself... He'll take about 6 very small bites (sometimes not even that much) for each meal.. but that's all he'll eat.. After that, he'll spit everything out, swat my hand away, turn his head away... I used to be a firm believer in "if he's hungry, he'll eat".. but he can't possibly be full!! He drinks [maybe] 18oz. of water and juice throughout the day and he doesn't eat snacks (not that I don't want him to, he just won't eat those either). I just don't know what the problem is! He's always happy until he has to eat.. then he becomes a monster!! Could it be because he's teething?.. I don't even think it's that because I've tried tylenol and he still gets angry when I try to feed him... Could the tylenol not be working?!? ugh... I feel so bad.. I'm letting him CIO right now hoping it'll wear him out and make him hungry... but last night when I did that, he cried so hard he puked.. and even after PUKING he wouldn't eat! Anyone have ANY idea why my little boy won't eat?!

My son is 10 months and I am doing good getting him to eat 1 jar of veggies and one jar of fruit at the most. I don't have much to say. He will take a bite of chicken say 5-6 chunks or turkey we are eating that is all. Maybe ask your ped about this one. My son in utro* was not a big eater I didn't feel hungry like my other two kids.
