I am new to this forum, my neice has just been transferred to my custody, she's 18 months old and has a non formal diagnosis of failure to thrive. She is under 5% for her weight and about 60% for her height. I am looking for support for dealing with her eating issues.

Welcome to the board. My son had a lot of feeding issues. What kind of services are you getting? Or are you just starting to sort this out?

Welcome. Does your niece have difficulty eating or absorbing?
I'm Krista, my daughter Anika has a lot of GI issues that attribute to her weight. She is supplemented by a g-tube now, where she gets about 98% of her nutrition from it.

We're just sorting it out. I have never experienced a child not willing to eat, so this is all foreign to me.

What services should we be looking for?

She has difficulties eating. She doesn't like to eat, will gag and vomit if co erced. It appears to be non organic at this point.

my son christopher is the same way. he is 18 months and he is 19lbs 12 oz. he is 31inch. he lost weight at his last dr apt. it is a fight at everymeal to get him to eat. some days all he eats is milk. pedi is not concerned because he is never sick. is your baby sick alot. is there a favorite food that she likes. try giving that to her more frequently. we found out that christopher likes ketchup. we give him ketchup with every meal and he seems to be eating more. he also likes cheese so we put cheese on everything. try that. also have you had her with you before. it may be related to her going through a change. being in a new environment can be stressfull to little tykes. maybe she needs a little time

Brandon was the same way. He has some oral motor problems that caused a lot of his issues as well as sensory integration disorder. I would see if your pediatrician can get you a referral to a feeding clinic. Also call your school system and see about getting help with Early Intervention (some places call it birth to three or something else). They can provide you with an occupational therapist to work on feeding issues as well. That is what I would start with.
