My daughter Lucy absolutely screams and goes into hysterics when we put her in her high chair to eat. She has been sick for a little over a week and wasn't eating much so we didn't have her in her chair then, but tonight she had a fit (the first I have seen other than when we go to the doctors) in the living room for awhile (on the floor, crying, shaking). I think we've ruled out sickness, a stomach issue (she"ll gladly eat animal crackers in the living room) and think maybe this is a phase? Our sitter said she was having some issues with Lucy several weeks ago with her not sitting in her high chair there for lunch and wanting to snack all the time. The sitter didn't give her snacks and when Lucy was hungry, simply put her back in her high chair (again and again). The only thing that worked tonight was putting her baby in her high chair and letting lucy feed her. Even then she only ate a few bites and only sat in her high chair to have 2 animal crackes after dinner. Any suggestions? Anyone else going through this? Lucy will be 20months on the 12th. Thanks!
