Hi, I'm not a ftm I have 4 children, but am at a loss how to deal with my 14 month old.
He wasn't born premature, he was 13 days late, but has been behind doing everything (mainly I think due to his older siblings doing it all for him) he didn't crawl til nearly 1. His pincer grip isn't as strong as it should be, am trying to encourage him to strengthen it through play. At lunch today I placed his food in front of him, he cried for about ten minutes, had a couple of bites of crisps, then threw the lot on the floor. Same with his yoghurt, any food he got on his hands he would throw to the floor. At dinner he did the same, everything went on the floor. He would pick some pasta up in his hands attempt to eat, then throw it. I don't recall having this issue with my older 3, they were all feeding themselves by this age. He does have milk each day, usually 3, 5 or 6 oz bottles. One first thing in the morn (about 6.30am) one at about 10am, the other at 2.30 pm. He doesn't always drink all of his bottles. He has a sippy cup but very rarely drinks from it. Please help!!
