Answer: Hello! Babies when sick avoid food . Hence check for any cold or cough or teething or any stomach infection. During this time the appetite comes down and as a result babies avoid food. It is a phase don't worry, will soon pass over. However, keep trying, try to encourage the baby in self feeding ,so that the baby grows and interest for the food.
Sometimes we can't predict kids behavior. We need to be patiently. Follow some tintacles. Show her colorful toys and feed. Give her whatever she likes more. Don't give always solid food. You can prefer semi solid food also. Make some soups with little veggies. You can prepare variety dishes like kichidi.

Answer: Hi.. Dear milk remains the prior part of your baby's diet other than that you need to experiment with your baby's favourite choices.. Make new dishes and see which your toddler likes.. 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 in your child 's meal.. It helps in building appetite.. You can divide these dishes as per as your convenience in the form of three regular meals.. Start with small bowls, then gradually you can increase the quantity..

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.
