What are your tips for potty training and picky eaters?

Ok y’all I need advice on a number of things. First I have a 4 year old daughter. And I am seriously stuck on potty training her! I’ve tried everything! She will pee just fine when it’s time to go. Very few wet accidents! But for the life of me I cannot get her to poop on a potty. She will go and drop a tiny poop but then as soon as she’s done and has her pants up she lets the rest out and says she ‚ doesn’t know how to poop. My mom and I are frustrated about it. I’ve got a referral to a sensory doctor since we’re thinking it may be a sensory issue. Has anyone dealt with this? Any tips? Second my 18 month old son hardly eats regular foods.

My 2-year-old is a picky eater. What can I do?

Hello mommys, so my 2 and a half yo is showing me hell when it comes to eating. Since he was 1 he wont eat anything. No vegetables, no fruits, no eggs, no chicken, no meat, no fish, no cereals. Im tired of trying. He eats bread without cheese or anything on it, two baby jar meals one with potato with vegetables and the other fish with spaghetti he likes them (they are for 12+ months and his dr told me thats nothing for him anymore), or rice with yoghurt ( i try to put small slices of chicken or fish without that he feels) sometimes i try to put carrots and peas but he will spit it . And he will eat spaghetti without anything just cooked spaghetti???????? He drinks milk and tea only and eats banana and apple. Even when he eats something he eat just couple of spoons. Anyone was in a same situation? Any advice?

Seeking advice to ween 1-year-old off the bottle?

So.. I have a baby boy who turned 1 a few weeks ago. Don’t shoot me, but I feel like we did everything wrong with regards to sleeping habits since he was about 6 months old. He is my first child, and I would do it totally different second time around but I can’t change that now. He still Sri is bottles during the night and when I tried the water switch over, he chucked the bottle me every time. He is I a routine in day care but I can’t get him to sleep through the night.

My 21-month-old would rather snack than eat a meal: Help?

Any momma’s out there struggling with your toddler to eat? I have a 21 month old and she just likes to snack throughout the day. She won’t eat a full meal. Fruit is okay but meats and veggies are a struggle. I’ve tried so many different recipes and nothing is doing it. I’ve thought about taking her to the doctor but haven’t decided yet. Is it just a phase? My mom and my mother-in-law say as long as she’s eating something she’s okay. Drinking is easy. She loves water and milk. Any ideas of recipes to try or what did you do when your toddler was going through that? Thanks!
