Andy was recently well-known around here as The Pig. He ate everything, and plenty of it. If you had it, he wanted to try it.

Now he is surviving off of ketchup, juice, milk, hot dogs, gummi worms, chocolate, pickles, cottage cheese, mandarin oranges, and this morning, we re-added yogurt. Last night, he wouldn't eat the hot dog.

How do we go from eating everything to eating nothing in just a few weeks?

Welcome to the world of SID/SPD. Hopefully, like Joey, he'll pull out in a little while... I think it took Joey about two years for the food thing to switch back on. But I understand we were lucky.

Is his speech therapist working on his oral sensitivity?

The Younger started to do that recently too. He's 2. I started pretending that the bites are trains for Thomas and he got to name them and we unloaded "cargo" into his mouth. It worked for the last 2 days so far. I think it takes his mind off of the original aversion because I turned it into something he loves. Who knows...I'll let you know if it continues to work.
