Question: My 9 months old baby is not eating anything.she likes only breast feeding.what should i do?
Answer: Hi.. Dear there are various reasons which make baby restless while having their meal.. It can be teething or it might be that your baby doesn't like what you are serving.. In order to make your baby eat make up stories, engage your child in conversation, make animal sounds.. Try to make feeding sessions interesting for your child.. Make sure you don't give the baby junk food just because that is all he/she wants. Offer healthy foods, and a hungry baby will eventually eat it.. Therefore must be any fruit or any vegetable that your child like, experiment your dishes with it.. You can make different porridges (vegetable khichdi, lentils and rice, only veggies), make different soups, give mashed potatoes, you can also give suji dishes (DO NOT ADD SUGAR OR SALT IF YOUR BABY IS YOUNGER THAN AN YEAR), Also, try to include wheat bran, cashew nuts, and pumpkin seeds (should be properly grinded in dishes) in your child 's meal.. It helps in building appetite..
