When Your Baby Won’t Eat

Lauren at two days old.

Here’s what it’s like when your baby won’t eat.

She may scream and cry and kick and arch when you try to feed her. I know how you feel. She may only eat half an ounce during a feeding, and you may be feeding her around the clock for months. I know how you feel. She may be miserable, and it will break your heart. I know how you feel.

Other people may tell you that all babies are difficult, as if your expectations are the problem. I know how you feel. Other people may tell you that their baby was small, and now she’s six feet tall! Just smile and nod. I know how you feel. Other people may tell you to ignore the doctors, that your baby is perfect. They’re right, of course she is perfect. And I know how you feel.

So if you’re in the same boat, just know that I know.
