I think I got stuck with usual trouble at this age:
-only apples and bananas
-his favorite dishes - polish pierogi (potato and cottage cheese inside dough), bread
There is really little he eats. Loves cow's milk. Started screaming for milk at 4am (he is not NF since he is 8mo). He is a skinny baby, ped says could gain 2-5 lbs (now 25,5). He doesn't like when I feed him, but eats little by himself. When my mom or MIL feed him he eats whatever and everything:( I put him in a high chair, give him fork or spoon.
Let me tell you how it looks:
4am milk (past 2 days)
7-9 breakfast (eats little scrambled eggs, bread with butter, he doesn't like any additions, kid's cereal)
4 dinner, but he eats little, I use to cook more, but I got so tired of food landing in the trash. When i cook for the whole family without much salt it doesn't help much. He tries, but no more than 4 bites.
6 I try to give his something, sandwich mostly
Sometimes he would have cup of milk at 7 and than 8, sometimes just 8. On the days when he doesn't eat I give him 2 cups:/
I used to cook and bake so much, but now I just don't. I got so discouraged. He is just not into tasting things i.e. if something is to colorful he wouldn't even taste a thing. That get's me so frustrated:( I spend 2h baking a carrot cake and he wouldn't even try:(
I think him asking for milk at 4 is because he is thirsty and MAYBE a little hungry from not eating during the day. Plus my AP made him think it's ok.
I need some good words and guidance. Maybe some good recipes to try?
I would appreciate it.
