Question: My baby is not eating properly. How can I increase her appetite
Answer: Hello dear Your Baby will not eat anything in just one time. You have to keep Patience. Feed him when he is playing one one bite. Or he is watching cartoon or doing some other activity. In every 2 hour feed youe baby something healthy. If it takes half an hour to feed your baby then its just ok that his tummy should be full. For example If he likes sweet then make Sweet chapati. Make things different for him according to his tastes and likes, it will be more exciting for him to eat something new. First divert his mind in any activities and feed him one one bite.
Question: My baby is not eating properly. He always ignore food and weight is also less.plze suggest anyone for my baby
Answer: Hello dear, If your toddler loses interest, or seems tired, cranky or unwell, take the food away. Try to give her in a different way like custard, fruit salad, pooding etc. u can use vaggie like cutlet, veg sandwich, fried vegetables rice etc.....Sometimes toddlers want to try new foods if you just keep trying....Make mealtimes a happy, regular and social family occasion – sit together to eat with your toddler whenever possible. Show your toddler how much you enjoy eating the food you’ve prepared. Get your toddler involved in helping to prepare and cook family meals.... Offer new foods when you and your toddler are relaxed and she isn’t too tired or distracted by other things . Set a time limit of about 20 minutes for a meal. If your toddler hasn’t eaten the food, take it away and don’t offer an alternative snack or meal....Offer new foods with foods that your toddler already knows and likes. Keep offering new foods. It can take 10-15 tries for children to accept and enjoy new foods.... If your toddler refuses something, offer it again in a week or so. Let your toddler touch, lick and play with food, and allow for some mess as she learns to eat. Let your toddler feed himself and give him some help if he needs it.... Hope it helped, take care ur little one....
Question: Hi my baby is 11 months old he is not eating properly and his weight also less 8kg
Answer: Hi dear, Yes,you can start giving solid diet along with breastfeed.remember the motive is to introduce variety of solids for taste and texture and not to increase weight through it.start very slow by introducing one solid at a time.watch out for any kind of indigestion or allergies.Home cooked food is more beneficial as they are fresh and free from any preservatives. Try giving him mashed banana,boiled mashed apple.ragi porridge with pinch of jaggery. Mashed boiled rice with daal water. Clear vegetable soups,tomato soups .mashed veggies like carrot and potato.homecooked idly is easy to digest too.khichdi is excellent now.you can also add some spices like jeera to add flavor.remember not to put salt in food before 1 year.youay add just a pinch so it doesn't appear bland.beleive me that much salt is just right.donot introduce cow milk products before 1 year,as this could give baby lactose intolerance.whole wheat roti dipp d it daal could also be given .juices should always be given in diluted form and never concentrated from.biscuits should be avoided too.Also refer the healofy app for daily updates on baby development and growth,as well as pregnancy care.it also gives you enormous info on post delivery baby care and diet.donot miss out!
