DAY 4-5 OF INTENSIVE FEEDING PROGRAM (FOR DAY 3 CLICK HERE)
Yesterday was a hard day. It was his first session with 10 bites and wow is that so much more difficult than 5.
The sessions are now considered Parent Sessions where I’m working with him to share the rules and expectations rather than the technicians.
It’s difficult to literally ignore your kid, but that’s the technique we use when he chooses not to eat. First we explain the rules. If he chooses not to eat after hearing the rules = no talking or fun. If he does choose the eat = lots of talking and fun.
Currently he is allowed 30 minutes to eat 10 bites. That time will start to decrease as he progresses.
He’s making progress though and we are ready for a weekend.
Bring on the swimming and brother time fun.
