Seriously so worn between sleep training, potty training, and figuring out a schedule to fit 2kids the last 4 months πŸ˜ͺ but I survived! Lol my 2yr old is completely diaper/pull up free and 4mo old sleeping through and on a schedule πŸ™ŒπŸΌ last obstacle (for now) in my sons eating!! I'm at such a loss at 2.5 Ped talked about sensory problems in kids and "oral defensiveness" in children and if by 3 he hasn't gotten better we would need to get more aggressive with a therapy! 😩 anyone deal with gagging,

Crying, and just seriously seeming completely disturbed by trying new food? He hates getting messy and I feel like that's the biggest problem! He WILL NOT eat any hot soft food!He eats yogurt, nuts, cheese, raw carrots and peppers, granola bars, crackers, cereal, and chicken nuggets πŸ˜”people advised me to hold out with him bc "if he's hungry he will eat"well he went a whole 24hrs without eating anything but a pediasure and was crying saying he's hungry! I can't starve him or force him to eat

It's beyond being a picky eater now it's like he has a fear of food that's why I try to make it positive with letting him help in the kitchen, go out of my way making crazy Pinterest "kid friendly food" give him like 5different dips to try, made sensory tables to play in, at the point I don't even care if it's healthy I just want him to try different textures! Like rice pudding I thought might work but gags again. I could cry every meal time I'm at a loss...

Sounds exactly like my son! His diet consists of peanut butter & banana sandwiches, waffles with Nutella, yogurt, goldfish crackers and fruit snacks. And he will only eat chicken nuggets/fries from Wendy's. I've tried frozen and homemade and he won't touch it. I can not "starve him" I don't have the strength in me to do so. He still gags when he eats and will still occasionally spit up. He's 2. He's in speech therapy right now and looking to get him enrolled in something to get him to eat better
