I'm new to this so sorry if I'm doing anything wrong"/ I'm Finally desperate enough to post hoping some way ill get help/advice whatnot. Long story short. My son Miles will be 2 on feb 4th. He still will not eat ANYTHING!! He never was big on baby food but he wud eat lil bits of it,I figured it was cuz the taste. He wud eat (well lick) sugar free Popsicles,yogurt and some pudding and loves drinking water,decaf sugar free ice tea. Never much but he was not even 10 months so I didn't think it was a big prob dr said he was healthy weight and everything. Around that time I rushed him to hospital cuz he had a temp of 104!! I was freaking out he's my first child and Im only 26! He ended up w/ruptured ear drum & infection! This was his 4th ear infection ENT recommended tubes,which run in our family. He also had Pneumonia around 6 months and some congestion 8-9months. I feel so bad seems like he always has something wrong but doesn't act it he's so hyper when Doesn't feel good he stays up at night n sleeps durning day. He Completely stopped eating everything when he Ruptured his eardrum. Formula only. Dr has always said he's fine he'll eat when he wants to. It's always bothered me that he doesn't think big deal. After waiting about six months finally got into food Specialist. She say def has a problem and believes that it's his sensory. Started doing this brushing thing I believe was called"Tera pressure protocol" after few weeks saw no improvement. We actually moved at that time n now he's gonna have his first apt w/early intervention next week. He still has never chewed anything. It's like he's scared"/It's so sad because he moves his mouth when he sees u eating. But won't eat. Iv tried EVERYTHING!! All he will eat now is chicken noodle soup only broth. I give him a bowl w/different foods but he just basically plays with it. He's still on formula cuz he won't eat and weighs 28/29lbs. He's developing great w/everything except talking which he started early but now only couple words. I always see other people saying that their kid won't eat except then list 10 things. I'm like WHAT?! I wud cry my eyes out if I saw my son eat a cracker!! I really hope someone can help!! I feel SOO BAD for my precious lil angel. He is my world and I feel like I'm failing him. I want him to be able to enjoy Food not to be scared of it"/ Thanks so much&sorry so long!!
