Question: my daughter is 15 months old and not eating properly
Answer: Bacho ke sath mehnat karni padti h dear.inko khana khilana is the toughest job. First of all you need to check the baby taste bud. Which food , texture, and nature likes. Sweet salty chunky and special ingredients what baby likes the most. Once you have the idea about it try making it creative by mixing with another ingredients to make creative. Focus on presentation too. Bring some bowls n spoons from fav cartoon prints.
If possible show the baby rhymes but not on mobile rather on tv.so that you have full control of that.
Always reward like give stars on eating the food. and encourage the baby to get some more stars like if baby gain 15 stars you will bring toys and like baby cartoon now he/she will have more power when they have stars. Make the stars valuable for the baby so that baby looks for gaining more stars.
You can collect some specific things in a bag and give.baby invest time in figuring out. So there are few tricks that you can try. Hope it work.
Question: My baby is not eating properly she spits everything i feed her and if i try to force feed her she vomits. What can i do to make her eat by herself
Answer: Hello dear. Here are few tricks that we tried with my daughter when she was REALLY little and ate hardly anything:
Keep offering the solid you are attempting to get him to eat. He doesn't HAVE to eat it, but he should be exposed to it. He may pick it up and play with it and feel it. That's ok. He is getting used to it--it's a process.
Offer soft foods cut up in small pieces. He might be more inclined to actually put a soft bite of banana in his mouth than a crunchy cracker. Bananas, cooked peas and carrots, avocado, plain cooked macaroni, etc. And cut them smaller than you think necessary.
Sometimes it helped to give my daughter a spoon and let her try to feed herself. She might have only gotten a couple of bites into her mouth, but she was more likely to keep it in her mouth, chew, and swallow it.
Offer the new food first when he's really, truly hungry. If you want him to try a banana but you offer it after his yogurt or whatever, he won't be hungry and will have little motivation to try something new. Maybe while you're prepping breakfast, sit him in his high chair and give him a few bites of the banana to look at/play with/attempt to eat while you chop up the rest of the banana to go in his breakfast.
Remain calm. This is sooooooo hard because it can be frustrating and nerve-wracking when your child eats a diet of about three things. But if you are anxious at mealtimes, he absolutely will pick up on that. I can tell you from experience that it will not help the situation. Keep working with him and see if he improves. With our daughter we knew she couldeat other things, she just didn't want to eat some of them. She's almost 4 now and her diet isn't amazing, but it varies more now than it did even 6 months ago, and every few months we're able to add a few more foods and textures to her diet.
If you aren't seeing some kind of improvement over the next few months (I wouldn't give it anymore than 3 months) then you should definitely schedule an appointment with your pediatrician to determine if he needs to be assessed for any developmental issues.
Hope this helps.
