Advice From the Pediatrician

  1. Try mixing baby food into her yogurt, fruit purees and the like. It won't necessarily add a lot of calories or nutrition, but at least it's exposing her to some new flavors.
  2. Bring her in for a weight check. Preferably during January, but she agreed to the week of Christmas instead, since I'm off from work then.
  3. Contact Early Intervention. She thinks that Calliope won't qualify, but that the intake person will have some useful suggestions.
  4. Try offering her a book or toy to look at while she's eating. Normally she doesn't advice distraction while eating, but sometimes with reluctant eaters, it's worth it.
  5. Rest assured, at some point, she will start eating more.
