Life After EI

I Confess, I Hate Feeding

  • Fingers are crossed for weight gain next week!  Its amazing that Charlie is wanting to eat lots of solid foods now and even the food you are eating. It must have been so disappointing to see that she lost weight even though she was eating so well.  I hope that the numbers are better this time. I know what you mean about losing the joy of eating because of the feeding disorder.  I felt the same, especially around holiday meals, with Hunter's feeding struggles.

    Let us know how it goes next week.


  • I am so sorry that you're dealing with this.  It's so frustrating when you think you're doing everything right and that one little thing, the scale in this case, comes along and derails you.  

    You are an amazing mom and Charlie's best cheerleader, advocate, therapist, nurse, her best everything.  I know you will figure this out because I know you won't rest until you do.

    I hope you can start to love food again too as Charlie begins to do so.

    Thinking of you,


  • Thinking good thoughts for you and Charlie for the next weight check.


  • I will be holding my breath right along with you until her next weight check, hoping that it was just a flaw in the scale. Sending you lots of positive thoughts.


  • I am so sorry for your struggle. That feeling of not getting head way is frustrating. But yay for Charlie on solid food and LIKING it! You need to feel some accomplishment in all of this. Some kids never come of the "liquid" diet so I have heard and she is eating soilds and EATING THEM WELL! THAT IS SO AWESOME!

    You are such a strong women for your resilence in all of the hardships and taking them with such heart. I pray for you all everyday and look for the updates on you and wonderful Charlie!
