What about making up some hard boiled eggs? Would they eat those? My ds loves them. An egg and a banana is quick and balanced.
You could also make smoothies the night before and have them ready to grab in the morning.
DS and I have several different allergies, but since he's only ana to peanuts, that's the only thing we won't allow in the house. Although, I'm having a hard time keeping him out of wheat things, so those may be next. That would be a huge transition for my dh and dd.
I'd suggest not eating any processed sugar for a couple of days and see if that helps. I was starving since the day I gave birth to ds until two weeks ago when I stopped eating sugar. By the second day without it, my appetite had gone back to normal and my stomach went back to telling my brain when is time to stop eating. I could never get full before. It couldn't hurt to try it.
You might consider getting a second opinion. My 3 yo son just had his front tooth pulled two weeks ago. He was given the laughing gas and literally laughed throughout the procedure. He had zero pain, zero trauma. I cried, he didn't. We drive two hours to the children's hospital for his dental work. It's worth it.
I've just realized my problems are most likely a gluten-intolerance in the last few weeks. It's a lot to absorb, mentally and emotionally. I've been dealing with ds's allergies and sensitivities since he was an infant, but now it's all making sense that those issues started with me.
Thanks for the reply and sorry it took so long for me to get back and update. We had family in town when we had to take him to Children's Hospital. It was an abscess and they did have to pull it. He never felt any pain at all and they were awesome. He looks like he's 6 years old now with the tooth missing and he's already pretty tall for 3.
It's okay. I'm way more upset about him losing the tooth than he is.
