i'm in tears today... i have to ask.. how do you mothers who put your spectrum child on a special diet do it??!!! my son will not try a new food... and no matter the approach or waiting it out.. he refuses!! he finally tried popcorn today at his OT and liked it!! but "my tummy didn't like it" so he threw up!! how do i try to help when his body seems to reject textures??? i'm very angry because it seems like most makes state, matter of factly they just put their child on this diet, and saw amazing results... it's not that easy for me, and i'm wondering if i'm just doing it wrong (of course the ever present mommy guilt).. i wish i had jenny mccarthy's money, and specialists.. is there any hope.. i just need some encouragement...
