Aiden used to be great about food but now all of the sudden the last couple of months, forget it. Last night I gave him dinner at 6:30 and he had like 2 bites. Then at 8pm DH heard him in the kitchen grabbing his food off the counter, spilling half of it in the process all over the kitchen and himself because now he is hungry! You just can't win with him it seems and everything is 1 or 2 bites here or there. GRRRRR. Anyhow, hope you find something that Tatum will eat more of!
I was going to suggest smoothies, but looks like someone else already did
Don't be afraid to get creative with them...you'd be surprised what you can sneak in to a smoothie!
I wouldn't worry too much about meat if he's eating a good amount of dairy. and eggs are great if he'll eat those!
Also, about him not drinking...have you considered letting him have a bottle just for water, to help the transition?
Sounds like he's getting a little better. I hope he continues!
i tried sneaking tofu into his smoothie and he wouldnt have it haha! i'm gunna try putting peanut butter in it tomorrow for the protein.I dont eat meat besides chicken,but i eat beans and tofu and he wont.If he wakes up in the middle of the night,i do give him a bottle with 4 oz of water in iti wasnt at first but out room gets really dry at night,so i think he is really truly thirsy at night,but sippy cups the water comes out to fast when he is laying down asleep.I am paranoid about his teeth rotting though,i know tons of kids whos teeth rotted and i just dont want to go that route.i'm hoping to find a sippy he likes though

gerber has the sippy cupsthat you can ad a plug like device to. Elias use to love spilling his water out and the daycare lady told me about them. The water only comes out when they suck on it. He can lay down and drink them without any problem because he is in control of the flow.
Thank You Justine *SandKmommy* for an awesome siggy
