Codi went to his one year doctor appointment today. Everything was terrific. He’s walking, says his three words, does every single thing on the chart that a 12 month old should do, he even does stuff a 15 month old should do.
That is, except…
After talking to the doctor he thinks Codi has a food aversion. He has given me the names of a few speech therapists. I guess some speech therapists work with children who won’t eat. He said we will try textures, flavors, colors, methods of feeding and such plus techniques to desensitize him. I’ve started reading about it and it seems normal, well not normal but not WEIRD. So tomorrow I will call and we will get started. Has anyone else every experienced this? Were you told to see a speech therapist? Did it work?
They also pricked his finger and he looks a little anemic. The doctor said that was kind of a big NO SHITTER since DUH the kid won’t eat. He is growing well, his head is nice and fat and he looked healthy and happy so the doctor wasn’t overly worried. He said to start him on a vitamin, offer him every single food under the moon and work with the therapist.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
