my 15month old daughter has just started refusing to eat dinner for me and my husband, its a fight every dinner time and it always end in tears. its so frustrating because its only for us, at childcare she eat everything and with the grandparents she will eat everything.
she has also started wakin really early 5-6am and i think its because she is hungry because she eats double what she usually eats for breakfast.
i need to know what i can do to get her to start eatting for me again, because im sick of fighting with her and puttin her to bed being angry and guilty she hasnt eatten

Hang in there. Has she lost any weight? Our son did this and the doctor said to give him anything he will eat to make sure he eats. You might want to check with your pediatrician. I've been freezing gogurts and they are like popsicles so I pass it on as a popsicle and he loves them. Only mommy needs to know it is healthy yogurt. He also has never been willing to drink milk (other than when he nursed). Some friends gave their kids a sippy cup of milk every night before bed to help get something in their tummies. Also if it's something you will eat, I tell him if he doesn't eat it I will and I make yum yum sounds and oh this is so good and thank you soooo much for giving me this food. That may not work at her age but it will eventually. I hope some of these ideas help.
