Hello Circle of Moms -
Need your advice/feedback, I'm hoping someone else that has struggled with this issue and can give me some hope. My 17 month old boy Refuses to Eat ANYTHING. No finger foods, no purees, no store bought food or homemade food, no table food, no cheerios, nothing. He only drinks formula - Nutramigen to make matters worse on account of his cow milk protein allergy. If anyone has had to feed their little one Nutramigen, you know the struggle. He hated it at first, took forever to get him used to it. It tastes even worse than it smells. I anxiously awaited when he'd be six months and able to eat solids so that he can finally enjoy what he eats but that day never came for me. We finally got him into the Early Intervention Program for an assessment but that is still months away - In the meanwhile, has anyone out there had this same issue? He can't possibly be on the bottle for years to come, so when will he finally start eating? And what can I do to help?
