H has turned into a fuss pot, with a very good over arm throw

i cant get her to eat anything any more! well it has been at least a month.

tonight i have given her milti coloured pasta, carrots, peas and broccoli, and grilled chicken.

she had about 3 pieces of chicken and the rest she THEW about 6ft across the room! when i say 'ah, ah!....no throw' she smiles grabs another hand full and chucks it even further!

help! she was a baby-led-weaning babe and she ate everything from 6 months old, never had any worries at all she would just eat it. dont know what to do...in the end she had milk instead, any ideas on how to stop her throwing?

caz, i know i told you to just amke more and A would eat a desent portion in the end, but i tried that with H and she just throws the lot :8o:

she is so fiesty....newshy she scares me a bit :innocent:

love k xxx

Hmmm..... it's a difficult one, you know I had this problem with A and you know what I hadn't realised he'd grown out of it. :O He hardly throws at all now. Is she in a high chair hun? The turning point with us was when A went into a booster seat at the table with his own new plate, knife fork and spoon. Lots of praise with how big a boy he was etc and he's been great since. We did the BLW too and he's great with veggies etc, jhas a proper appetite, but think the food in front of him was too tempting to throw on his high chair tray. Try the chair hunni. They're £9 I think from Argos and fix to a normal dining chair - he sits in the middle of us so we've got more control if he was going to pick his plate up, so we can take it off him.

Good luck chicks - I hated the throwing phase and try as you can not to react, it's difficult. xxx

Mmm - I guess handcuffs out of the question then?! :D

What about ignoring it and pretending it doesn't bother you? They do love the reactions. I know sometimes I find bad behaviour hard to do that with...

Hoping things improve and it is just a very short term thing! Lol xxx
Keep smiling :happy:

thanks so much for your replies ladies :hugs:

caz, she does sit at the table with us in her princess booster seat 88) but i havent given her a plate, knife fork etc yet as she tends to throw the lot on the floor as soon as she can get hold of it. i have got a little silver princess set of cutlery that someone gave her for her christening, i think we could try that.

this morning i gave her a slice of toast and left her to it, i was in the room but i was on here so had my back to her and she only threw 2 pieces mmmmmm

do you think im fueling the fire by reacting?

she has also learned how to get into her changing box (very clever) but omg have you tried getting sudocreme out of a carpet? :bawl:

it isnt like she has no attention tho, im with H and spud AAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLL day every day....spud is attention seeking atm too.

love k xxx

Hmm I'd say diefinatly the reaction helps them to do it. A would pick up a handful of say pasta, do his cheeky mischief face and throw it when he knew we were watching. Try the cutlery hun, A loves feeding himself, he takes ages then resorts to picking bits up with his hands anyway but no throwing.

Mine got hold of a bottle of my elemis face mask, foundation and a roll on deodorant the other day :rolleyes:


Cookie all i can suggest is keep trying, maybe take her in the kitchen with you and let her help choose what she wants to eat?? xxx

we have a little wicker box in the living room for changing G, just has2 nappies and a pack of wipes and can honestly say he never bothers with it and now points when he's dirtied his nappy!

maybe letting her choose her own food is a good idea.

re the sudocrem thing, G had my foundation yesterday smearing it up the mirror in our room and would only give it back when i started to play with his beloved Thomas!!! they are monsters when they start getting into things arent they.... :innocent:

We have a big Vaseline patch on our bedroom carpet from when Harri got his hands on it!

Harri has been really fussy for about the last 6 months or so which is a real pain as he too was a fantastic eater as a baby.(his big bro, Mason, still is thank goodness!). I b/fed him until he was 14 months and was so careful about giving lots of good healthy meals but its a bit frustrating watching all that hard work go down the pan!
I really do think the most of it is for attention but not sure how exactly to get around it myself....have tried all the usual stuff. Harri throws his food too but not across the room, just down onto the floor which makes meal times messy! Had to tell Daddy off the other day as he threw a scrunched up napkin across the table at Harri .....great example he is!!!!
Do hope you have some success...then you can pass on any advice :happy:

Absolutely 100% yes, yes, yes! I honestly think the only thing to do when they start this little caper is to ignore the little blighters. They may not eat a thing for the next two years but more likely they'll eat one proper meal a week, have two mouthfuls at every other meal, make your hair fall out with worry - but at least they won't think they are the boss of mealtimes.

Hey, but thats just my opinion ;)

Hello newshy

My change bag lives in the hall now madam has learnt how to undo zips (vaseline in the carpet is another fun one to get out!)

We get the odd throwing frenzy (not that often yet thankfully!) I think ignoring it is the way to go. The times when I say 'No you mustn't do that' are generally met with a bigger handful of food grabbed and lobbed with even greater conviction than before. Coubled of course with that smug defiant look! bless them lurve

Ella likes to put some food in her mouth then 'spew' it all out, then somestimes puts it back in again! Then when she's had enough she likes to feed the dog with it!

Hi all, hope you don't mind me bringing an old topic to life.

I have a really fussy toddler all of a sudden. She used to eat anything and everything, and then it changed to only spag bol and only food covered in a tomato based sauce. I resorted into covering food in ketchup but she now just picks the ketchup off and wont eat what's underneath!

I ignore bad behaviour (throwing food) but it really annoys me when she refusing to even try something because she doesn't like the look of it!

This is just a phase right and will pass? She is not at the age yet when I can reason, cajole or threat. So I have to wait until it passes, right?
