Oy, I need help asap.
My 17 mth old baby girl is causing a lot of problems with her feeding. It is extremely hard to get her to eat. Lately for the past few months she has been putting her finger down her throat and causing herself to gag. Shes been doing this purposely to get herself out of the highchair and when she doesnt want to eat. She is under 20 pounds and currently in the 5th percentlile for weight. I am at a loss here and it is getting very fustrating to get this child to like food.

Some days are better than others. For the past 2 days its been not good. I only give her food she likes and lately she just eats very little of it. Maybe 1 bite of s/g.
She was drinking pediasure and now her doctor (specialist) has switched her over to BOost.

Any advice that any one has, pls post.

Also has anyone heard of DR. Carmelo Cuffari from Johns Hopkins?


Thanks
