Help! I'm at my wits end! My don is 13 months and for about 5 months now every morning during breakfast ALLLLLLL he does is whine or cry. He is perfectly content before breakfast and afterwards but every time I try to feed him in the morning he throws a FIT!! Sometimes it takes me an hour just to feed him because he is too busy throwing a fit. I don't know what to do. It's so frustratinf because every morning starts out with him in a terrible mood and it ruins the rest of the day.

I have tried telling him "we'll finish when you stop whining/crying".....but he doesn't stop. He'll just keep going. If anything when I tell him to stop he gets even more upset and angrier.

Maybe he's not hungry yet...

I always play with my 13 month old daughter 30 minutes before breakfast.

Maybe he doesn't like what you're feeding him either. Could be a lot of things. Try changing the routine up a bit, give him new foods, get a portable booster seat and eat breakfast with him at the table.

Also a 13 month old doesn't understand what this sentence means : "we'll finish when you stop whining/crying".....

Good Luck!

He usually has fruit and either oatmeal or toast and sometimes eggs.It's usually not the same.

I tried holding off a bit but that seems to make him angrier lol. Once we get to his bottle he's content but eating the food he whines all the time.

The interesting thing is he doesn't do this with my husband if he feeds him in the morning!

And no he doesn't understand the threats...that happens when he can reason a bit better, after potty training and doing something to get a reward.. till then patience....

Is he teething...maybe he doesn't want to chew...sore gums?

Or maybe he's like me and my daughter... we hate to eat within 2 hours of waking up!

My mom told me I used to spit up at school and gag at home if she tried to make me eat. And I have one child who does the same and another who doesn't.....

Or maybe you should try switching his breakfast to something that he has never had...

What does he eat?
