Answer: I can understand your anxiety. Tell baby slowly that he should chew his food. Make food that he shows interest like paratha so he chews out of interest to eat it. Please try to avoid giving mashed foods.Make him eat with you and show him that he should chew and eat.It takes time but please don't stop trying. Fruits you can give in juice form as of now. He will definitely eat but till then keep trying.Good luck

Answer: Hi dear it is a common problem which we mom go through when baby is switching to solid food from semi solid food. U  need to leave some semi solid food lumpy so that baby will have to chew. Also i traducerea finger foods like french fries carrot and other thing and give it to baby. He will play and also learn to eat. Also u teach ur baby how to chew by eating with him. Tell him to play the game of chew. Tell him to count 1 to 10 when chewing . With regualr prescribe and motivation. Ur baby will learn soon

Question: My son doesnot chew the food the eat.. he always use to swallow the food i tried him to make chew n eat but no use..? What should i do?
Answer: Hi! Its because the of the texture, since no texture was not introduced at an early age he is used to have pureed food. Try giving finger food instead. Big enough for him to hold and chomp. Something soft like a piece of ripe guava, or cooked carrot or pumpkin, or steamed apple. Let him hold and eat it. Even better is something crunchy that breaks up easily in the mouth like a paper dosa or rawa uttapam. It is normal to gag when they first start solids (puree does not really count in terms of texture) is very normal. It will gradually get better as he gets used to manipulate the food in the mouth. But if you leave it too long, the gag reflex is actually going to stay further so it is more difficult for baby to make the transition. Hope this helps!

Question: my son is 8.5 months old....he doesnt want to eat anything at all....is teething a reason?? how do i make him eat?? any help?
Answer: 6 to 9 months babies are too small. In this stage babies taste will develop. Before they do not eat solid and don't know about solid food. Now slowly baby will start to eat. Slowly baby's taste will develop. In this age eat him or her only 2 or 3 spoon first and after 2 3 hours feed him or her 2 3 spoon more. Take the help of toys and feed her. teething might be a reason.
