Q. Okay so I'm not looking for any type of judgement but does anybody else's husband do this my husband does not like feeding our son baby food or regular food he'll just give him a bottle of milk or a PediaSure and let him go when I'm home he gets one of the Gerber graduates food or whatever we're cooking fruit veggies I'm at my wits end I don't know what to do with my husband I'm getting him to feed my son actual food and not just bottles of milk and PediaSure any suggestions ladies because the next step is literally quitting my job to stay home and make sure my son gets more than just milk and PediaSure weight-wise he's fine great fantastic but I don't think didn't just a bottle of milk or PediaSure is good form any suggestions

@ why do you think he won't feed him ? Not knowing what to feed him? Having a hard time? He needs to do it. It's ridiculous otherwise. He may seem fine after milk or pediasure but those are supplementations. He's growing and needs solid food offered in the day for growth, and getting used to more food

@ I don't know truthfully I buy the Gerber graduates yogurt fresh fruit veggies for the baby that way he doesn't have to cook all he has to do is warm up the Gerber graduates and cut up some fruits and little bowls of vegetables all he have to do is dump the water out and put it on the baby tray and let him feed him self! I'm even going as far as leaving little notes and meals out for what I want the baby to eat while I'm at work and snacks for the baby and most the time I come home and those are still sitting on the table not touched and I know what he feeds because I asked as soon as I get home what did the baby today and his responses milk PediaSure I know my husband chooses when and if he wants to eat but choosing not to feed our son or regular food because he doesn't want to cook is ridiculous specially want to take just a few seconds to warm up his little solid baby food or vegetables and put it on a tray so he can eat it

If he is a stay at home dad, he may just be having a hard time getting the baby to eat and trying to make things easier. I would at least switch the kid to formula. Enfomil makes one for toddlers. In the mean time, u feed the kid real food when u R home, to help things along.

Pediasure isnt recommended unless youre Dr gave the ok! My Sons dr said no way and keep feeding him as we were!
As for the other see im having the opposite prob my Son is barely wanting to eat while my SO is at work he comes home and my boy is like DADDY!! & then screams for food! I ve learned to just set stuff on his tray throughout the day and he takes what he wants
Can you leave some snacks out? Maybe make his breakfast b4 you go? I agree though your SO is gonna have to help id be calling on my lunch break making sure he fed him

@ he work over night and I work days I had a lot of issues with getting him to take formula I only find one that he would take so that won't work MB said that Enfamil makes him scream@ his doc is ok in him getting pediasure but only as a last resort she wants him eating food. Yes my son is a picky eater but will half of what u put on his tray and the other on the floor

I'm sorry. Well any formula is better than none. Remember, most foods have to be tried like 10 times. Just be patient. Also, try and find liquid vitamins for his age group

Also, baby cereal great for needed nutrients
