Are meal times stressful for you? Is getting your child to eat a struggle?

Most of the time it is!! Every once in a while Nyla will eat a good meal, but for the most part she eats very little. She has always had a rough time eating; she was on baby food until she was 18 months old because anything that was textured would make her gag. She doesnt do that anymore, but doesnt eat well either.

carly is pretty good about eating. It's the spitting up afterwards. We're still working on getting the prevacid. Does everyone comment how tiny your child is cuz I keep getting that? She's 7.5 weeks and p[eople tell me she looks 3-4.

Yes. Meals are extremely frustrating and always have been. Bit by bit we are getting her to sit longer, try different things, and even swallow a few bites.

ALL THE TIME!! People have made comments since the day I brought her home from the NICU. At 6 months she still wore newborn clothes and no one thought she was really that old. When she started walking it was the same thing. We still get comments and she just turned 6 years old.

I happily rely completely on her GJ tube to feed her now. She's being fed 21 hours a day.

Danny eats really well but finding foods he can eat is very stressful.

We also get the "how tiny" all the time. Mostly after they say something like, "How old is he? 1.5? 2? I bet you just turned 2!" Danny will happily tell them that he is 3.5 and I get either that "why don't you feed your child" look or the "but you are so little..."

Grrr...

We do night feeds with the pump and try to encourage her to eat during the day. It is so nice knowing that even if she eats nothing all day, I can supplement with bolus feeds and she will get fed. When the doctor first put her on the tube, I cried and cried. Now I am so glad we went this route.
