I had someone tell me to take him out of his high chair and tell him dinners over. Tried this and the problem is he doesn't care! He just sat on the floor and started playing- even though I knew he was hungry!
Then I tried giving him one piece of food at a time so he doesn't feel overwhelmed. All that means is throwing one piece of food at a time instead of a whole handful!
I tried making him sit in his highchair with no food until me and my hubby are finished but neither of us could handle the screaming that goes along with that technique.
So pretty much we're at a loss. I want my son to eat but even if he doesn't, I want him to behave at the table. He's too young to understand the time out concept and we try not to say "no" too often (even though its slipping out more and more these days!) So how do you discipline a 12 month old?
I know I shouldnt compare but All of the other kids his age sit like angels and eat off of plates when we're together. I don't dare give my boy a plate cuz the whole thing will get tossed. Oh and he's obsessed with eating paper so paper plates are out of the question too!
I feel like such a mess up. I can't figure out what I did to cause this behavior! My little man is loved and cuddled daily so its not like he's craving attention!
I'd really appreciate any advice!
