Eating has always been easy for me. I have never had an eating disorder and i have never been overweight. I'm not trying to brag, i just mean that i have never had to consider why i eat, i just eat.
Rachel and i took M to her one year check-up with the doctor. The doctor informed us that M is not gaining enough weight. Rachel and i have been struggling with dinners for M for a month or so now. What we make her for dinner she won't eat, just a few nibbles. We have recently switched her to real food from jarred baby food and at first she was game, but now not so much.
Any advice? I feel lost regarding this issue, how do i let her be herself while eating but insure that she is eating enough? How do i not give her my tension during dinner? I want her to be free to be herself without me shoving my concerns down her throat, literally.
How do i teach her to eat?
