Answer: Hi dear, There could be many reason for your baby not eating food. 1) teetjing- due to painful gum baby is mostly in awful mood and need something comforting like bm/fm most of the time. 2) Anaemia- Usually breastfed baby gave low hb levels as breast milk isn't sufficient to meet baby's iron need. That's why doctor recommend iron drop during first year of baby. Try to include more iron rich foods in baby’s meal plan. 3) Bacterial /viral infection - baby might be having a throat or stom infection which is very common with teething baby as he tries to put every in his mouth anything contaminated can cause infection. Keep his surrounding and toys clean and sterlize. Add heeng to his food to prevent infection. Make him drink water through the day. 4) boredom - like adults babu also gers bored of eating same food everyday. Be experimental and introduce new recipes to him. If you are giving him mashed potato try fried version. Presenting the same food in different method becomes appealing to baby. Hope this helps
