Help! I am so lost on what to do here. My toddler (22 months) has breastmilk for about 90% of her nutrition. I would actually love for her to eat more, but she really has no interest. Her teeth are also rapidly losing enamel. I'm assuming I should be able to incorporate something (or more of something) into my diet to curb this or even reverse this?? Any ideas?
This happened to my now 9yo when he was a baby, and we didn't know anything about TF, so just kept having frustrating dentist appointments ("Stop bottle feeding him" "Stop giving him soda" "No more candy") giving us useless information because we weren't doing any of those things. His top 4 front teeth eventually lost all enamel and we had to have them pulled. At 9 years old, the adult teeth are finally just starting to grow in. I REALLY don't want to go down this same road again - talk about feeling like a failure as a natural living parent. I was vegetarian then, and started eating meats over the last few years and thought maybe my body stores would be filled up enough to nourish a baby, but now I am doubting it.
Is it something as simple as drinking milk? I buy raw milk and my older kids drink it. I don't have much of a taste for it, but if someone thinks that would be a key, I'd be happy to start. I take FCLO/HVBO each day (about a tsp), make our own chicken broth, eat lots of good fats, cook nearly everything from scratch, etc. We do eat some sugars, but anything we do is homemade baked goods and really not much of that.
Please any tips are appreciated. It gets me to or near to tears when I dwell on how I am failing my baby here :(
