I am so sick of dealing with Muffins feeding/eating issues. Having a child that refuses to eat anything or try new things is exhausting. I know that his diet is slowing his growth too which as a parent is frustrating.
He eats the following and only the following...
nutri.grain cereal bars
chicken nuggets (only fast food ones and not all the time)
This kid refuses to eat meat or pasta or veggies and 99.9% of fruit. He freaks out if it's even on his plate. Every meal that I attempt to offer new foods just gets completely frustrating. Everyone, including Muffin ends up angry and upset. I mean he won't even taste it! He is so stubborn too. Hubs sat with him tonight after dinner and it took him an hour to get him to touch the chicken nugget (frozen style, not fast food) to his lips.
Muffin has SPD. He is behind socially and emotionally. He's 4 but acts more like a 3 year old. His speech is coming along and his vocabulary is building slowly but he lacks the ability to understand more complex ideas and still cannot answer "why" questions. What if he is still like this when he is 7? They tell me he is not autistic...but why do I feel like everyone is just missing something? Did I mention his other front tooth fell out too? He will now have no front teeth for at least the next 2 years.
If you have heard of any conditions or delays that you think I should research, please let me know.
