Emma is on strike. Food strike. Milk strike. I am soooo serious. I am about to lose my everlovin' mind here!
Remember when I told you she wouldn't eat or try any solids? Yeah, that is still going on too.
Except now, she has added bottle feeding to the mix and her baby food as well. And she still won't touch a solid with a ten foot pole.
She is taking around 18 ounces per day, sometimes less. To give you an idea of the strike reaches, she was taking about 30-32 ounces per day. She is also getting really tricky to feed baby food. She will normally take her yogurt in the mornings without a problem, but lunch and dinner are more tricky. I have to like fake her out and trick her, then she will normally get into a pattern, but it's like a FIGHT to get her to finish.
And, I hate doing that. I feel like it is making food a negative thing for her. I don't want her to associate eating with bad feelings.
I am also worried sick that she is not getting enough nutrition. The doctor said she should be taking 20-24 ounces of milk per day, but you cannot force the milk down her. Trust me, I've tried!
So, I need some help off this ledge. Cause y'all, I am about to jump. For realz. Tell me you've been there, and tell me what I can do about it to make sure my girl isn't about to expire from lack of milk/food!
Thanks ladies! And the one or two gents that read this here blog!
