I have a 2 1/2 year old son who lets say gives a new meaning to picky eater. He has been this way since he was an infant about 9 months old. I asked my doctor he said don't worry he will out grow it. And to be honest he hasn't. Being a devoted mom I hate receiving those goofy looks when you are out at a restaurant and your child is the only two year old eating baby food. He does eat all cereals with milk, crackers, basic kids snacks but will not eat meat or any regular table food. Which makes feeding very difficult. My doctor thinks it is a lifestyle issue which it isn't I am a mom trying so hard but he gags himself. Many moms said it seems like a texture issue which is super hard to overcome is there any moms out there who have a child that is this picky or do you have any pointers. I have tried everything from not giving him the foods he desires to positive reinforcement he just isn't having it. Plus my babysitter and Mom are very devoted to helping him eat. Even his big cousin who he idolizes can seem to help the little guy out. My husband and I feel like we are all alone and no one else's child is like this though I know in my mind there probably certainly are. Help Please!!!
