food strike [Jan. 25th, 2007|05:09 pm]
august2005

My son is staging something of a food strike. It's not that he's refusing all food, but out of the blue last week he suddenly started refusing many of his staple foods. When I offer them, he either ignores me or looks at me like I've offered him a weasel on toast. I've had limited success by offering him some new things, but still, it seems like the amount he's eating has gone down significantly.

I would not worry about it so much except for the fact that he's suddenly decided that cheese is out. Cheese has been his main source of calcium for months now since he a) refuses to drink milk or anything but water, for that matter, and b) refuses to eat yogurt or cottage cheese. I tried making cream cheese pancakes for him this morning, but he gave me the weasel-on-toast look and dropped them on the floor.

So ummm, help? Has anyone else been dealing with this lately, and if so, how did you handle it? Do you have any ideas about getting extra calcium in the diet? Do I just grit my teeth, remind myself that he's reached the age of wanting to assert his independence and ride it out?

17 mo. update [Jan. 24th, 2007|01:00 pm]

Hey,
Even though I don't post much I still try to keep up with and read this community. I have a few questions for anyone that might have any advice.

First thing, we've been using sign language with Rhett since about 3-4 mo. he uses quite a large range of signs and will even sign up to 3-4 words in unison. Ex. more, milk,please
He can say all the words that he can sign,however 80% of the time he chooses to sign over talking. This is fine with us as we can communate fine with him in this manner. My mother-in -law seems to think that with us using sign lang. with him it's stunting his speech. I think she just gets aggravated b/c she can't understand all of his signs. Does anyone know if sign language does indeed mess up speech development?

Secondly- he's 17 mo. old and still uses a pacifier. He has all of his teeth except his 2 yr. molars and had a rather rough time with teething. That's the only reason we allowed him to have it after a yr. old. He only takes it at naps & at bedtime but is rather(highly) attached to it at those times. Any advice on getting him to give it up?

tricks with medicine? [Dec. 11th, 2006|10:08 pm]

Hi everyone, hope your babies are all growing and learning new things!

A question came to mind today as I was giving my son some ibuprofen for teething pain: Until he's old enough to take this from a spoon, how am I going to get it down his throat? I have been hooking a finger into one corner of his mouth and holding it open while using a small syringe to squirt the medicine into his other cheek. I keep the finger there until he swallows it all so he can't spit it out, and my husband holds him still so that the whole operation doesn't go awry as he squirms. Anyway, this trick of mine has been working for a while now, but CJ has enough teeth that I don't think it will work much longer. I barely escaped being bitten (hard) this evening.

So, do you have any ideas? I'd be happy to put the medicine in a sippy cup or bottle for him, but he absolutely refuses to drink anything but plain water (I've tried many things, and he spits them all out) so I think that's out.

In other news, it looks like my son is going to be a big brother next July! Another summer baby, I can hardly believe it ...

I want to start by saying HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all and hope the weekend goes well...Anyway my daughter is a year and 5 months,small and short.Im not that tall.5'3 and about 140.Her dad ia 5'6 or so and weight is ok.The thing Im worried about is I get WIC and have been going in every month last 3 months because she isn't gaining ANY weight and not really growing.She weighs 16 or a little more pounds and eats well at home with people daycare...But I have had to get test such as urine,blood,poo and others to see what's wrong.She has always been small and wasn't late or born early,WIC wants her on pediasure and I think it's baby stress due to her dad taking her to and from daycare and me work all day and weekends too instead of her dad working and me at home,she was never apart from me till now and a whole lot of other things have changed as well,and at least ONCE a month,a cold flu something...Assure me it is stress...Any ideas??Will WIC end up taking more from me or will they see she is just a small baby???Also she hasn't really walked on her own yet and just got off my nipple.
