My DS is 17 months old. He still nurses about 3-4 times a day, but his food habits are starting to drive me crazy! I need some suggestions or reassurance and am hoping you all can provide it =)
He used to be a great eater. He'd eat almost anything I put in front of him. Lately he'll focus in on one food for several days and will refuse to eat anything else. For example, the only things he would eat today were tomatos and wheat crackers (literally... I tried about a dozen different foods). He refused all of dinner, signing that he was "all done", but then not five minutes later signed that he was "hungry" and started banging on the pantry doors. My husband offered him more tomatos and he gobbled them up.
So do I limit the amount of one food that he eats? I'm so worried he's not getting what he needs. I'm worried that he's still hungry. I know I'm supposed to trust him to tell me when he's full, but I just don't understand. Any suggestions or good books on this topic would be so appreciated.
