Have you tried a speechie?
NO! But i am going to talk to my GP about it now tomorrow. I've written a list thanks to you guys
A speechie or a dietician ASAP. A generalist paed is not likely to be necessarily that useful with this issue.. . . .
referral to a gastro. . .
The paed we are going to see is my DS7 (who has Asperger's, ADHD, ODD, CD and Anxiety issues) Paed. So i am hopeful he will be able to help us with this issue. Although if he can't is there another type of paed we can see for diet?
I have seen 3 Dietitian's, the best (and only one to really listen) was in NSW but we dont live there anymore and the 2 i have seen here we're not very good. one i only saw a few times before she moved clinic's , so then DD6 was sent to the other one who kept saying i was putting to much food on DD's plate, or i wasn't putting enough on her plate, she told me DD wont starve herself, send her to bed hungry she'd soon eat and the thing that made me stop seeing her was when DD was lost 500grams in a month and she asked me what i did wrong!!
***edited to add*** what will a gastro person do?
maybe consider someone psychologist/counsellor dealing with anxiety if she is fearful of trying foods that she is not comfortable with.
She doesn't appear fearful of trying new food, just looks at it/smells it and will (usually) take an instant dislike to it and refuse pointblank to eat it and when we try and make her eat it she will dry reach as soon as it touches her lips. However i will talk with the GP about this as well and see what he thinks.
Does your child have any underlying conditions or special needs that could be influencing her choices?
I asked my DS7's Paed a while ago about this (DD6 doesn't have the same father as DS7) and i think its something we might be looking into.
I had a friend say to me a few times that DD6 and DS7 are very alike so either i refuse to see it, or my friend is seeing things
The GP said he would 'run bloods' if we couldnt see the Paed for a few months, what would this be for? I know i will find out tomorrow, but tomorrow is just so long away. LAst night all DD ate was the meat inside a rissole (which wasn't very much) and she didnt touch anything else, this morning she had half a wheatbix (no milk) and for lunch 1 peice of bread (no Margarine) and a small hand full of chips. . . its simply not enough
