TIME TO FEED PATRICK!
Patrick hates to eat. He will always pick playing over eating. It's so weird.
I always joke that this is a sign that he is adopted, cause we Coles
like to EAT.
I have to force him to eat and sometimes I just get tired
of fighting him and don't make him eat.
He's on the skinny side on the growth charts and he is super tall.
However, I've noticed that he gets super grumpy when he doesn't eat.
More than just hungry/grumpy. He is throwing fits and I can't get him to
Then, I force something in his mouth and within minutes,
he is fine.
I had his doctor run his blood sugar, but it was within the normal range.
Then, I started thinking that maybe it was hypoglycemia. So, for the
past 5 days,
I have put
him on an eating schedule. I set an alarm for
every 2 hours and I force
him to eat something.
The fits are going away. I don't make him eat much,
but every 2 hours, I make him eat a banana
or a piece
of cheese or something.
He's actually asking to eat more in
between those times now.
It's really funny because when he hears the alarm on my phone,
he yells, "TIME TO FEED PATRICK".
Do any of you have experience with something like this?
