My 3 yo stepdaughter eats anything and everything at her bio mom’s house but acts up at our house and throws up after one bite of even her favorite foods. Says her stomach hurts every single time. Yet same food at her bio mom’s house, gets eaten regularly. Taken her to doctors, she’s fine apparently. Any advice?
Maybe its not the food but her surroundings
I wouldn’t force food on her. Offer her some Pedia sure and pick your battles.
I don’t think this is a food issue I think it’s a control issue
Also I’m not meaning to imply you are forcing food on her… just that I wouldn’t make her ewt
It not the food she does not want to be there…
Let her eat when she wants. Don’t refuse feeding her
Just offer her the food and pediasure
She’s stressed out or uncomfortable and probably misses home at her moms
Gosh it sucks to be a kid in the situation!! Adults just don’t understand or care. We just say they will get use to it. Of don’t you want daddy to me happy. Remarrying is so hard on your kids. Think about THEM before you do it. ￼
She’s three soo she’s terrified wants her mom and probably does have an upset tummy from anxiety just try little bits of food here and there and pediasure
Don’t force her. Sounds like she’s not comfortable at your home for some reason.
Find out what she eats at her mums or ask her if she would like to come shopping with you and help pick out dinner.
It’s anxiety. Guaranteed. 100%. Stomach discomfort is the number one way it exhibits in young kids. She isn’t showing out. She is distressed.
have her mum bring food for her
Must be a fresh new relationship if she isnt eating at your home. People shouldn’t rush things when it involves kids. Simply let her warm up to you and your home. Have her mom pack her food just until she is ready… I mean shit shes 3 years old!!! Of course it’s all strange to her.
Children that small can’t identify anxiety yet. It usually is mistaken for a stomach ache instead.
Tummy aches are sometimes an emotional issue…
Bio mom?? Wouldn’t it just be mom? Sorry
I think you need to reduce time at your house. I get that her Dad loves her but she obviously has anxiety and misses her Mumma. Please think of her.
Maybe she’s uncomfortable there
