Managing a feed refuser can be a tough assignment and quite exhausting work. And everyone has their bit of advice to give. Its made that bit more tricky with kids who are also allergic or intolerant to a variety of foods so please take all of these hints and tips with a grain of salt and consult your doctors / dieticians and other medical professionals with regard to new foods that might be an issue for your child. Please also take into consideration the developmental milestones of your child.
Give yourself rewards and take pride in even the smallest achievements (this includes managing to have a shower in a 24 hr period!) Get out of the house! The crying doesn’t seem so loud when you’re out of the house. Try to eat regular, healthy meals.
Be aware of your child’s position in the seat as baby capsules and some car seats can cause pressure in the stomach area. Keep an eye on your infant or child over longer journeys to ensure correct positioning in the car seat.
