Hi everyone. Here is my backstory....my son is 2.5 and has for most of his life been a a great eater. He pretty much ate whatever was put in front of him, up until a few months ago. First the veggies were becoming an issue (I assume most toddlers go through no eating veggies so I chalked that up to him being a toddler). Ok no big deal I thought. A few months ago he would have sporadic eating days where he would eat really good for breakfast and lunch but maybe not so good for dinner or vice versa. Meaning that he would eat what was given to him but at that other meal he ate half or less and did not want anymore but would ask for like fruit or something like that. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago - its getting worse. At this point all meals were getting to be an issue and he would eat less then half of most of meals throughout the day. Or he would request something and then not want it and eat something else. Fast forward to this past weekend - At this point he's starting to not want to eat what we are giving at all and requests something else, and if we fix that for him he would maybe eat half or less or take a few bites and say "no more". Mostly he's requesting stuff and not eating any of it or taking a bite and spitting it out. Yesterday was my breaking point.....He ate no breakfast, after three tries for lunch the sitter finally got him to eat a handful of french fries and then he had fruit gummy snacks after he got up from his nap. I could not get him to eat anything for dinner. Nothing. I am to the point where maybe he should learn that if he does not eat his dinner he will go to bed hungry but then in turn I don't want him to starve or be hungry. And my sitter does not want him to go hungry there either so she offers him several options all the time. He's been drinking juices, water and milk fine all this time. No issues there. He has been playing and everything fine and napping and sleeping fine. He is cutting a 2 year molar (first one we have seen so far) so I am not sure if that is playing a role. I am just completely stressed out and I literally cried for 45 minutes last night. I keep hearing "he'll eat when he gets hungry" but I am struggling with this. The child can not live on french fries or snacks, he needs to eat meals. Please tell me that this is typical toddler behavior.
