Question: My baby is not eating..she refuse any food i give her..what should i do..?
Answer: Hi dear,
You would need to observe any change in your baby recently.if baby is having any kind of illness like cold ,fever or stomach upset.it could take minimum ,two weeks to get back the appetite after illness.fussy eating is common in babies.so donot force feed.let them.knowbtheir own appetite and eat accordingly.donot show mobile or TV to feed.you can try giving finger foods to baby.make food into bits and pieces and try him eat on its own.i know it would get messy but it's worth.baby would develop Interest.try something to else,with variation in food.if you have been giving only rice then try idli,dosa or roti for some days.they get bored of same type of food.sing rhymes,tell stories while feeding.it should be a phase and should pass donot worry.
