Re: 14 months hardly eats or drinks

I know it sounds horrible, but with the regular milk have you tried adding chocolate or strawberry syrup? If you can't afford the formula (it's expensive) maybe try that. I know WIC gives tons of milk. Remember that children don't starve themselves. And it is not bad if the things he'll eat are fruits and veggies. My 12 month old, while still nursing eats ALL day long, sometimes just a few bites but i always offer something on a general routine.

6:30 am nurse
7:30 breakfast: ie. cheerios and bananas or oatmeal & strawberries
9:30 am snack: usually fruit of some sort
11:30 lunch: diced chicken cubes & soft cooked veggies
12-1:30 nap
1:30 nurse
2:30 pm snack: usually fruit and pretzels
5:30 dinner: whatever we're having broken into pieces
7:30 before bed snack: usually popcorn with nutritional yeast on it

Now she still nurses once or twice at night too... but if you did something similar but offered milk or pediasure or something... when DS was a toddler he gave up on the high chair... we bought a small kids table (little tikes) and he was more inclined to sit there to eat.
I'm Jami...mama to DS (Jude 8/14/08) and DDs Lyla (9/21/10) and violet (5/8/12).;and wife to Adam, high school sweetheart & soul mate.
