Ever since my 14 month old turned 1 years old he gives me the hardest time .when it comes to feeding...hes extremely picky and its driving me insane and worried. Hes only 20lbs. And i can not have him loose anymore weight!! At meal time he would spit out whatever hes eatting or he will. Toss it on the floor my ds will hardly eat a complete meal of food a day . im highly frustrated at this point. What can i do differently ?? Any suggestions...

Is he still breastfed or occasionally drinking formula? There is nothing wrong w/ him only being 20 pounds, but if he's actually lost weight... what does the doctor suggest?

Toddlers don't actually need to eat a lot. When my girls were 2 their best friend would lick the syrup off a waffle and be done w/ breakfast. She's almost 14 now and still quite picky, but very healthy and active as well.

Keep offering a small selection of healthy meals and snacks on a regular basis and let him be in charge of what he eats and when. If he's just being picky, but he's active and thriving... it's likely fine. If he is losing weight... talk to the doctor about your concerns.
