My DD (20 months)

She is a mutant non sleeping non eating mess right now! Click here to enlarge She used to shovel food in like there was going to be a shortage. She does really good at breakfast and lunch. I don't overdo the snacks. Dinner she eats maybe 3 bites and throws the rest of it everywhere. I think it's payback for making comments about other people's kids. Click here to enlarge She almost refuses to take naps. If she does go down, it's not more than an hour. She still sleeps fine at night, though, about 11 to 12 hours. HELP! Click here to enlarge

I totally understand I went through this for almost 3 months. The doctors and infant and development said not to force her, other wise it becomes a game to them. so one she decides she is done if possible put what ever the food is at a height she can reach and let her pick.

buy finger foods stuff she can't make too much of a mess eating and cruising at the same time.

Also get some pediasure that will give her all the nutrience that she is missing out on. Keep an eye on her weight, as long as she isn't losing much then just keep on doing what you are doing.

Unfortunately it is a stage, and she will grow out of it. I promise it will be hard but it will be over soon.

Sorry I also wanted to add that the sleep thing is normal. She might be just progressing to no naps now. This is about the age some kids do it. Thank fully Peyton isn't yet.

Consider yourself lucky for the times that she did eat and sleep. My youngest dd has never eaten or slept with the exception of bf and sleeping fairly well for the first 2-3 months. Beyond then I have battled for every meal and every hour of sleep. So of course I have no advice Click here to enlarge
