Lately my 19mo hasn't wanted to eat unless Daddy is home. So, I'll get a few bites during the day and then he'll eat an okay dinner. He wants to drink lots of milk during the day...and I let him. (At almost 8 months pregnant I don't fight a lot of fights) I bought the Rainbow Light powdered vitamin but it's a fight to get him to drink it. (It clogs his bottle so that's not an option...he never drinks all of it before it goes nasty. I'd say on a good day he gets a half dose)
We've been fighting constipation for a LONG time now. I've found that unless I stuff him with nothing but dried fruits and whole grains he gets constipated. I've tried slipping a pinch of Benefiber in his milk (there's not dose instruction for children under 6) and I have to watch that or he gets diarrhea. Sometimes it gets so bad there's blood on his poop (like anal fissures) and you can tell that it hurts.
I feel so bad. We don't have a regular ped (long story) so I don't have anyone I could trust to go talk to. I need ideas, please!
