FORCE FEEDING???

Oh, how I love the days when I have to FORCE FEED Cole. The "culprit" is usually the cream...a.k.a. Most Important Part of the diet. He does pretty good eating all of his food- I mean there's not a whole lot of it...1 oz of cream, a DAB of applesauce, a slice of butter, & bits of cheese (yes, that is all he gets). He usually goes in spurts of eating REALLY well & the next day...we literally have to pin him down to get the cream in. Nope, not something we "want" to do...but, it happends!


This is him after "force feeding"...yes, that's how I feel too!!!


But, On a happier note- He drinks out of STRAWS!!! He wouldn't touch ANYTHING but his bottle. We give him Herbal Tea in his Straw Cups. He gets cream in his bottle 1st (while he's starving or he won't touch it) then we give him his itty bitty meal. & tea to fill him up if he's still hungry!


Then I thought he was going to "READ" a book, luckily I had the camera ready...it looks like he's reading it, well, he was for 2 sec. still cute though :)

  1. Adorable pictures, like always! For OVER A YEAR we had to force feed Bertrand. It's a testament to his willpower that we gave up (much to his speech and occupational therapists' dismay) before he did. Yes, A YEAR. Hopefully, Cole is a little less stubborn than B!

  2. Sarah seriously you are one of my heroes. I can't even imagine how hard it is to stick to a diet that is that complex. But it IS definitely worth it and I guess seeing the improvements you have seen can only give you more hope for the future.
