Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

baby wont let me eat

3 answers
I have a 9 month old son and I am currently almost 26 weeks pregnant with baby # 2. Since I'm in the middle of the second trimester and suffer from acid reflux fairly often I eat sporadically during the day. My son will not let me eat. I have tried giving him a bottle, his own food and toys to play with but he always wants my food/drink etc. So I'm not able to eat as much as I should. Any ideas on how to get him to let me eat so I'm not starving all the time?

I have three children ages 6, 3, and 2 and I'm working on number 4. Unfortunately I know exactly how you feel because I go through this all the time. the only thing I've found that works is to make extra since you know you're going to be sharing. Unfortunately I have no solutions to offer just sympathy. Sorry and good luck!
My 10 month old does the same thing to me! I cant stand it!
My son does the same thing. I'd feed him enough to make him full too! But when it comes to my food he just wants to play with it. Everyone keeps telling me its because he's still hungry, but when I fed him he was so full he refused everything, even his drink. It's frustrating, I know. The best thing I can say or do is to let him eat his own food or fix extra of what you have on your plate so he isn't grabbing at yours.
