Sensory issues is making my toddler almost starve himself
My almost 3 year old adorable little boy does not eat food. He gags and or vomits even at the sight of food. He is on Pediasure but that is a daily struggle to get even 16 ounces into Him and the OT says he needs at least 4 bottles , Im struggling with even 2. He has no interest in eating, he will let me sometimes put small pieces of things in his mouth but he will not pick it up and put it in himself. He has to lay down to take his bottle, he will not sit up and drink it.
If he is sick or teething , he can starve himself for weeks. Plus vomit and gag. This has been going on since he was about 10 months old. He is also autistic. He will not drink juice or water out of a sippy, he drinks about a dime size amount and thats all. I feel like every day Im struggling to keep Him alive. I work with the autistic clinic and a OT and nutritionist, they say just keep on trying.
